Compiling this list was, inevitably, both a joy and a torture. If I can mostly only see what's missing now (films I love by Varda, Wajda, John Sayles, Powell and Pressburger, Michael Haneke, Terence Davies, Mikio Naruse, Jacques Demy, Barry Levinson, John Schlesinger, Allison Anders, Christophe Honoré, Lars von Trier, Nuri Bilge Ceylan, Andrew Haigh and many more), I also see 10 rich and cherished works that move, excite, seduce and enthral as much as they did on first encounter.
