30 for 30: My 30 Fave Films Since 1988

August 1, 2018

I turned 30 this year, back in May. It was a pretty unceremonious birthday, especially since it happened just a few weeks before my big, stressful qualifying exams for my Ph.D program. At the time I said that I'd celebrate in a few weeks once the exam passed, but here it is, two months later...and I still have done nothing at all to celebrate my 30 years of existence. In an effort to remember what an awesome thirty years its been, I present to you my top 30 film picks - one for each year that I've been alive. 

 

Note: this list isn't the BEST film for each listed year, but my FAVORITE films based on criteria like how rewatchable they are, how memorable they are, how much they influenced me, etc. Don't @ me.
