Comments

These ten films are for me the more innovative in the different ‘moments’ of cinema. All of them propose a cross between reality and artifice, between genre and style, between tradition and experimentation, between classicism and modernity. Each of them has meant an opening of borders and boundaries of cinema and has asked about what film is.
