Movies That Shaped Our Culture

Eve Tushnet discusses movies that "shaped our culture" here and here. She makes a nice point that so many "influential" movies were influential only in the way they changed movie-making. But as for changing anyone's life? Not a bit of it.

As for me, my major influences have been My Man Godfrey and every other screwball comedy of the 30's and 40's. I wasted an awful lot of time waiting to be pursued by a madcap heiress.
