As we all know, if you want a big film collection, nowadays, it is easy. You can pick up hundreds of DVD's for a buck each - it doesn't matter. But, as a film fan, I'm sure - like every other film fan - the ifrst thing you have a gander at when visiting a new friends house is their film collection - its never about quantity, its about quality. A-Z is my way of going through my collection, from A-Z, and justifying why I own the films
#1 - 12 Angry Men
Why did I buy it?
C'mon! Its a 'classic' - one of those 'you haven't seen 12 Angry Men?'. For a long time, it didn't really phase me ... until I saw Fonda in Once Upon a Time in the West. This established him - for me - and made me more keen to watch it. Not to mention, it cost £3
Why do I still own it?
It is a great film, having watched it. More importantly, I love the one-room films set-ups - 12 Angry Men in a jury room, one guy trapped in a phone booth, a bunch of people in a lift ... a guy trapped in a coffin. They are always really interesting and, if they become really positively-praised, that means that - above all - the acting is great. This is a film, whereby the acting is incredible and the set-up is really interesting. Interesting enough that I know that if someone asks me about it, as its short, I'll simply say - okay! lets have a watch!
