10 Reasons to Remember…

The idea behind 10 Reasons to Remember… is a simple one: celebrate the passing of someone connected with cinema by listing ten of their more famous, important, and/or interesting movies. Sometimes, these lists can offer some surprises, or just reaffirm how good an actor or actress or director etc. really were throughout their career. And if there’s a movie or two that prompts a visit (or even revisit) then that’s a bonus.
