Comments

Some thought has been made to ultimate worth but also to the films that have given me the most visceral sensations (from Casablanca’s Marseillaise to Coppola’s jungle hallucination) or simply the happiest times: the humane craft of Greene, Reed and Ralph Richardson leading to The Fallen Idol’s perfect last line; freewheeling Wenders and screwball Hawks; Hepburn and Grant – these are all similar sorts of bliss.
