Comments

These are simply films I love and want to share. Groundbreaking only in that they broke new ground for me in their own ways. Best only in that they’re some of my favourites. Important only in the way that we’re all a little bit self-important sometimes. Entirely personal, of course. Applying no external logic whatsoever.
