Looking at film and television. Here is some stuff recommended to me.
I asked on Google+, Tumblr and Twitter for people to recommend films. I thought I would share the results here. (See the Full List). Please recommend films at any of the above.
Doctor Zhivago (1965) was recommended by +Satia Renee.
This is one of those films that I've always meant to watch, but never got around to it. I've enjoyed the Lean films I have seen (Brief Encounter, Lawrence of Arabia, Ryan's Daughter) but I did have a fear that this one might drag. It didn't and was, like you'd expect from Lean, powerful and emotional. Well worth the watch, and proof that "Recommend to Me" was a good idea, making me watch something I probably never would have got around to otherwise..
As a return recommendation I'm going for another Lean, but not a well known one: Ryan's Daughter (1970) which I saw at the Townsville Cinema Group many years back and recommend watching on the biggest screen possible.
