Comments

My choice is made based on the importance of these films in my life but I also think they are important in film history and very beautiful films. And there are a lot of others, maybe more important or representing more solid aesthetic pinnacles of achievement, that I’m very sad to not put in my list. Next week, maybe I’ll have another list.
