Comments

To choose my Ten Greatest Films of All Time I had to select certain significant films I watch again and again – and all for different reasons. Ten films I’d happily survive with in a post-apocalyptic bunker with a projector… and I’d smuggle in This Is Spinal Tap (Rob Reiner, 1984) just to make this list “go up to eleven”.
