Genre Genders: A Girl and “Lawrence of Arabia”

Ask me what my favorite movie is. You’ll wish you hadn’t.

My answer to ‘what’s your favorite movie?’ has a preface followed by two parts. The preface: at this stage in my artistic development, I have two evaluation processes for favorite movies and therefore have at least two favorite movies at any given time. The first category is ‘the nostalgia pick.’ This is the old faithful, the constant, the first movie to ever make you say ‘wow, that’s a good movie.’ Stand By Me is and always will be answer number one.
