Comments

I’m neither a film critic nor a film historian, so for me the only way to set up a poll like this is to accept it’ll be made from a subjective, whimsical, impure and definitely intimate point of view, because each and every one of these adjectives are also applicable to my relationship with cinema as a curator and as a cinemagoer.
