Esquire presents (pdf) 75 Movies Every Man Should See. Vaguely amusing, especially the one sentence summaries, e.g.

The Warriors: Bloodthirsty mimes, clown-faced baseballers, and barechested men in leather vests—kind of makes you miss pre-Giuliani New York City.

Glengarry Glen Ross: Because no matter what line of work you’re in, first prize is a Cadillac, second prize is a set of steak knives, third prize is you’re fired.

How about 10 movies every Eph should see? I’ll start with:

The Graduate: Going home to live with your parents after graduation has its advantages.

The Human Stain: Why couldn’t Nigaleian have featured such a surprising ending?

Not nearly clever enough. Readers should provide better sentences for these two movies as well as other suggestions. All movies should have a meaningful connection to Williams. (The Graduate (the book) was written by Charles Webb ‘61. The Human Stain was filmed at Williams.)
