A list of the movies I spent my childhood obsessing over for one reason or another—and which I find myself thinking about a lot as an adult, accordingly. I'm always interested in peoples' formative movie memories, and in how complexly they illustrate the gap between taste and experience. Anyway, I want to catalogue that for whatever reason. I think about these movies a lot—they're imprinted on me, it's weird, and I want to keep track of it. I especially like what this means for films that are otherwise forgotten (Race the Sun, e.g.). These films don't matter—but they do to me.
In a way this feels like the only kind of list it's worthwhile to make: not a display of your taste, but an unguarded catalogue of things that somehow, for whatever reason, affected you.
An ongoing catalog extending only up to the end of high school (17yo).
