Pulp Fiction, Mary Poppins Among Library Of Congress 2013 Film Registry Selections

pulp fiction

Another year, another 25 films selected by the Library of Congress for their ever-growing National Film Registry, a collection of films to be forever immortalized for their “cultural, historic or aesthetic significance.”

Among the high profile inductees this year, Mary Poppins (just a coincidence it’s the same year as Saving Mr. Banks, curators insist), Pulp Fiction, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, The Magnificent Seven, Michael Moore’s auto industry documentary Roger & Me and The Forbidden Planet, which depicted space travel before it became a reality.

The oldest film is 1919’s A Virtuous Vamp, while the newest is already 10 years old, 2002’s obscure, experimental found footage style Decasia, a meditation on the decaying of old silent films.

Here’s the full list. I’m sad to say I haven’t heard of many of these. Time to get to work…
