“A good movie is three good scenes and no bad scenes,” said the great Howard Hawks. Seems rather simplistic, but I think it holds up. The best films, the films I come back to have scenes or sequences in which I can’t wait to watch again. Great movie scenes stay with you, whether it’s because they were funny or sad, happy, cool. A great scene isn’t limited to any one genre or culture, and so, as I gathered, from memory, my favorite motion picture scenes, I did my best to reflect my love of all genres and my love of world cinema. That being said, westerns and musical numbers came out the most frequently. A great duel across the open landscape or an imaginative dance sequence, to me, represent the best of cinema.
