We've all been there. You're at a party or on a date, and someone asks you've if you've seen an insanely popular film. You're smart. You're put together, but this one slipped through the cracks. Maybe it was a genre you hate, or maybe you dislike the director, writer, or actors.
Whatever the case might be...you lie about seeing it.
Well, you're not alone. Successful people in the industry do it too. It certainly doesn't mean you don't know great movies or great moviemaking.
The Hollywood Reporter recently sat down with some famous actors at the Sundance Film Festival and interviewed them about which famous movies they may have missed over the course of their career.
The results are encouraging.
There's no time like the present to jump back into classic films and genres, like noir. Especially with over 30,000 of them available to stream for free! Classic movies can give you new plot ideas, like twists, and maybe help you craft that exciting ending.
So get watching!
