Comments

My list is based on personal preferences rather than historical significance. I imagined myself being allowed to watch only ten films for the rest of my life. Or actually, to be completely honest, in such a scenario I would probably switch one or two of the films on the list and get some stupid comedies instead – it's just that I can't decide on which one(s). Or even better (if they counted as films), I would pick some TV series (first of all: Friends).
