    A writer I follow on Twitter, Dan Wells, joked, “I want to start my own film festival called ‘Movies I Love That Not Enough People Love As Much As I Do.’ Is that a thing people can do?”

    It got me thinking about what kind of film festival would you most like to run and what films would you include in the lineup.

    I think I’d like a Bag of Money film festival — those movies that are driven by pursuit or theft of, well, a bag of money, which has produced so many different kinds of movies, from “Psycho” to “A Simple Plan” to “No Country for Old Men.”

    Maybe a before-they-were-Oscar-contenders festival highlighting the less-than-auspicious beginnings of some now-loved actors’ careers, like Amy Adams in “Cruel Intentions 2,” Laura Linney in “Congo,” Rachel Weisz in “The Mummy.”

    How about an “A-listers, before they were A-listers, slumming it in horror flicks” festival, headlined by Jennifer Aniston in Leprechaun?

    My festival would be called “The Great Dames Festival,” and it would showcase the films of Dame Maggie Smith, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Julie Andrews, Dame Helen Mirren, Dame Angela Lansbury, Dame Diana Rigg, and Dame Penelope Wilton.

    The event would culminate with the debut of a film titled ‘The Great Dames,’ starring all seven of these actresses.
