Lawrence of Arabia

1962 United Kingdom

This is a great cinematic achievement in all aspects of filmmaking and acting. It is, rather, a cinematic miracle.

Once upon a Time in America

1983 USA, Italy

Sergio Leone's epic crime drama is visually stunning, stylistically bold and emotionally haunting, and filled with great performances. An innovative crime movie that goes far beyond the limitations of a crime suspense movie. It creates an opera of self-examination that is full of bitterness, pain and a sense of loss.

1963 Italy, France

Fellini's film is a great piece of poetic cimema. It inspired all modernistic cinema movements that came after.

The Godfather

1972 USA

A landmark of the gangster genre.

Cinema Paradiso

1988 Italy, France

Cinema Paradiso is a funny, warmly sentimental celebration of moviegoing using the cinema as a metaphor for an era, a lost innocence and an irrecoverable past.

Raging Bull

1980 USA

This is a great film on a number of levels – as a biography of former middleweight boxing champion Jake LaMotta, yes, but also a fascinating character study, with stellar performances from Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci, and epic direction from Martin Scorsese.
