YOU KNOW, FOR KIDS: The British Film Institute, not to be outlisted by its American cousin, has released its list of the 50 Films Every Child Should See before they turn 14. My five-year-old son (five and a half, he would tell you) has already seen 10 of the 50, which I think is a pretty good start, especially considering I have only watched 17 from start to finish. No doubt there could have been more Disney and Miyazaki films on the list, but overall I think the BFI did a good job of spreading the wealth. Besides some of the obvious suspects (Pinocchio, Bambi, Willy Wonka, etc.), any true childhood classics they overlooked?
