Comments

My choice was guided by the significance of the films through over time, as well as by their complexity. That complexity is rooted in psychological depth, a penetrating and research into the self, in the characters, in the suggestive camera and scenography, all of which brings out the splendour of the films’ themes, allusions and messages. Many of them changed the course of the film history or redefined genre, but first of all, they caltered our attitude toward film. Because of that, it wasn’t important for me to only consider the facts, but also the essential depth that comes from their timelessness.
