As part of some writing for 2009 I’m creating a few lists of films; especially lists of five or ten films that deal with specific themes like religious conflict, women in the workplace, third-culture childhood and spiritual expression through music. This naturally leads to the general question of “best films ever.” I’ve never sat down to compile a list of 100 favourite films and, truth be told, it’s a hard task. The list below is a first draft and I would welcome comments, suggestions and ideas.

Hey Fernanado,

I’m looking forward to seeing the “third-culture childhood” list.

Thanks for your recent link to the Ruth van Reken post on Obama as a third culture kid. It was encouraging. I had a chance to hear her speak a couple of weeks ago and discovered she lives just an hour away from me. I’m hoping to meet her for a cup of coffee sometime in January to chat about a book I’d like to write on raising global kids.

Blessings,

Shane
