15 Films That Made an Impression On My Younger Self

I’ve been tagged on Facebook again for another list. This time films.
Implied is that they are films that had most impact. So I’ve elected to pick a set that reflects films that, seen when very young, have stayed with me. I will, given the chance always watch again. Cue family groaning… Needless to say, given may age, they were mostly enjoyed at home on the telly. In fact I believe the only one I have ever seen in the cinema, and much later in life, is Lawrence of Arabia.

A Hard Day’s Night
The Ladykillers
The Third Man
Ice Cold In Alex
Lawrence of Arabia
I’m All Right Jack
The Naked Spur
The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner
A Matter Of Life And Death
Blow Up
Kind Hearts And Coronets
The Ipcress File
