Comments

I think these are the films I’ve seen more times than any others. I should add ten films by John Ford, ten by Hitchcock, seven by Truffaut, seven by Eastwood, five by Murnau, five by Walsh, three by Lang, three by Bresson, three by Renoir and three by Pixar. And ten more by Buñuel, Hawks and Keaton. And both films by Bielinsky. There should be two different lists: films and directors, or titles and careers.
