Suzanne Lummis invited a select group of poets to “name their ten favorite movies—or twelve, or seven, or fifteen, or however many they had…” with the resulting opinion that “now we know how different the Top Grossing Movies of all Times list would look if poets would just spend more money attending the ones of their choice—or, if the world had more poets. No Titanic, no Star Wars sequels, no Passion of the Christ…”
Each poet is given their own page on which the movies are listed and comments noted. Some of the poets include: John Allman, Ellen Bass, Wanda Colean, Allen Ginsberg, Terence Hayes, Philip Levine, Judith Taylor, and a couple dozen more.
