Comments

It is really hard to pick just ten films – I could easily make similar representative lists out of the 15-20 films I chose and then cut while trying to come up with this one. If I did it again next week, I’m sure that some of these films would be replaced by others, but as of today these ten films represent what cinema means to me the most.
