1

Bride of Frankenstein

1935

It is truly a masterpiece.
2

Phantom of the Paradise

1974

It’s Brian DePalma at his 1970s best.
3

The Night of the Hunter

1955

It’s the only film Charles Laughton ever directed and its brilliant and haunting.
4

My Favorite Year

1982

It’s uplifting and smart with great writing and acting.
5

Mighty Joe Young

1949

I like it better than "King Kong." I know that is blasphemy, but it has Ray Harryhausen’s best work while working under Willis O’Brien.
