Comments

These are the films that have affected me most over the years – works that encourage repeated viewings and reward close study. Apologies/honourable mentions to A One and a Two (Yang), Come and See (Klimov), Divorce Italian Style (Germi), Fat City (Huston), I Was Born But...(Ozu), The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (Cassavetes), Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid (Peckinpah), The Passenger (Antonioni), Rocco and His Brothers (Visconti), Touch of Evil (Welles) and We All Loved Each Other So Much (Scola).
