    Hi Amanda,

    I have been nominated for the rather mysterious (and unfortunately named) ‘Kreativ Blogger’ award by Catherine Grant at Film Studies for free (http://filmstudiesforfree.blogspot.com/2010/01/award-season-begins.html). Part of the rubric of the award states that you nominate 7 other bloggers, and I have put yours down on my list (http://thelesserfeat.blogspot.com/2010/01/kreativ-blogger-award.html). Please feel free to ignore it, but I just thought I should let you know. Equally, if you’d rather not be involved for whatever reason, I’d be glad to remove you from the selection…

    Anyway, all the best,

    […] Amanda Ann Klein, on her blog, judgmental observer, considers the complexities of being asked, “What’s your favorite film?” She notes that this question is a hard one for film scholars, in part for reasons of identity, a lot of yourself is at stake in the answer, but mostly because most of us don’t actually have a single favorite movie. We love different films for different reasons, and how we answer the ‘favorite question’ depends on context. Why am I am being asked? What do I want to watch the film for? And so on. […]

    Hello Amanda…found your blog through the lamb folks. Wow, over 700 sites now and I thought I was going to find ‘making the rounds’ an easy task. Nope. I’ve been enjoying your articles here and there, quite a distinguished CV! And the above quote about “what’s your favorite film?” is perfect and spot on. I find myself in a similar situation and often reply, with respect to a particular genre, filmmaker, era? It is quite impossible to narrow down the possibilities, especially for people who have watches thousands of movies in their life time. For the casual movie goer I suppose the answer would be far less difficult.

    I hope you are enjoying the holidays and if you are so inclined please drop by my blog and say hello.
