Library Of Congress Preserves PULP FICTION, GILDA And ROGER & ME For All Time!
While I do a lot of awards watching here, there’s one end of the year list that I look forward to more than any other: The Library of Congress’ list of National Film Registry additions. This year, Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, easily one of the greatest motion pictures ever made, finally makes the list, along with classics like Gilda, Mary Poppins and The Right Stuff. As always, lesser known arthouse fare like Decasia, the most recently released film ever added to the NFR, as well as cult faves like Forbidden Planet, will also be preserved alongside those immortal classics.
Here’s the full list of this year’s selections:
- Bless Their Little Hearts (1984)
- Brandy in the Wilderness (1969)
- Cicero March (1966)
- Daughter of Dawn (1920)
