Selection criteria for my
Top 10 Travel Movies list

To maintain a tight focus...

Film nominees for my Top 10 Movies with Travel list must:

Be a successful major feature movie.

Capture the true character of a place, not its Hollywood-hyped or popularly misconceived image.

Tell a human story, be it fiction or nonfiction. Documentaries such as wildlife and travel guides are not eligible for this particular list.

Have travel-related scenes that are an integral part of the movie's story, not merely a travelogue-style backdrop.

Inspire seasoned, not just armchair travelers.

Contain sufficient film footage shot in the actual country.
