Day 2: My favourite film with a name in the title



For Sama (2019)

This was a difficult choice and I nearly picked Toni Erdmann (2016) or About Elly (2009) but this searing documentary by journalist Waad Al-Kateab, trapped in Aleppo, Syria during the uprising and titled as a message to her daughter, Sama, is impossible to forget. It opens your eyes to the real impact of political discord and the tragedy behind the headlines we scroll past. You can read my review here and see details on IMDb here.

What’s your favourite film that has a name in the title? I’m betting at least one person chooses Shrek (2001).

  1. I choose the movie Tim which I saw a long long time ago after reading the Colleen McCullough book of the same name an even longer time ago. I think it was the first time I saw Mel Gibson.

    • Funny, I read this book just last year for the first time but I don’t remember ever seeing the film. I have a bit of an aversion to Mel Gibson now but think his younger self would have done a good job with this character.
