Comments

This list is something close to what I consider to be a personal film canon, an impossible mixture of subjective, historical and critical approaches to cinema assessed in terms of emotional, rational and aesthetical pleasure, decade by decade, along with my own changing perspectives on the subjects, films and directors. It is obvious to point out that 100 different lists could have been made for the same exact reasons. This is the least painful one for the moment.
