dear kevin spacey, these didn’t suck

yesterday, cbs sunday morning aired a really good interview with kevin spacey. in it, he said: every now and then, i remember, i would read things where people said my career was over and that, you know, i’d run away from hollywood. but i’ll tell you this: i don’t think i could’ve picked a better decade to go run a theater than the decade we just had in terms of what i missed.

today, i scoured imdb’s lists of the most popular films released from two thousand three to thirteen. and i made a list of my own. twenty-five films that merit some attention.

memoirs of a geisha
cinderella man

  1. I have watched eight on your list and thought about watching more of them but have yet to do so. I wonder who I would consider my 'mentor' for film recommendations. I think I will think on that. Kevin Spacey made a good decision for his life, well done to him.
