Comments

As quickly as I could, I listed ten great films that I knew well, had seen many times, and thought I could watch for years to come with pleasure and with new discoveries to make each viewing. Then I put the list away. A few days later I took it out, changed a few things, and put it away again. A few days after that, it still seemed OK, so that’s my list.
