Everyone has their favorite films, but Kenneth Turan, the film critic for the L A Times and NPR’s Morning Edition, has the expertise to back his choices. He covers the twentieth century by decades and includes the twenty-first century as well. He believes these particular films are timeless; he goes behind the scenes to show them as products of their times as well, highlighting directors, actors and actresses and screenwriters for their contributions to the finished product. He explains why each film appeals to him and includes suggestions for other films to enjoy.
