“Tell me which movies you like and I will tell you what you are.”

This is a series of posts for a meme in which you have to list one favorite film per alphabet. Thanks to Dev, I took this up as a challenge that allowed me to express my appreciation of some of my favorite films. I have structured each post with one winner (a pre-requisite of the meme is that you select one, and only one), a runner-up, and other noteworthy films. Feel free to take up the meme if you like.

This page serves as an index to the series. The entire collection, including reader recommendations, is available here. Do leave a comment if you like the series or if you want an Excel spreadsheet.
