Name five films you'd like preserved for future generations

Posted on


Danceswithwolves_lAs we reported earlier today, The Library of Congress has added another 25 movies to its National Film Registry, which preserves “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant” works for future generations. Some of this year’s selections include Dances With Wolves (pictured, because my editor knows I Iove Kevin Costner), Back to the Future, Bullitt, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. The Registry now totals 475 films. Here’s an alphabetical list of the collection from 1989-2006. Which five films would you like to see added next year? I’m thinking: A Christmas Story, The Exorcist, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, Wall Street, and When Harry Met Sally…

P.S. I love that Groundhog Day is already on the list.
