1926 Germany

This early masterpiece is the definition of the 'magic of the cinema' and easily one of the most beautiful films ever made.

L' une chante, l'autre pas

1976 France, Belgium, Netherlands

Partly brilliant, partly silly feminist musical about Engels, the pope and abortion. What is there not to like?

Golden Parable


The short films of Vittorio De Seta are invaluable time capsules in which he manages to capture the warmth of the sun, the sound of the wind, the smell of the sea and a feeling of the innocence of the world that is now lost.


1981 USA

“No animals were harmed in the making of this film. 70 cast and crew members were.”

How did this ever get made??! Oh, well. I am glad that it was. Utterly sublime pure cinema craziness.

Tokyo Olympiad

1965 Japan

Empathetic, humanistic, intimate, witty and visually mesmerising depiction of humans engaging with sporting activities.

All That Heaven Allows

1955 USA

This heavenly luscious, polished, sophisticated and sentimental romantic drama is cinema's pure delight. Technicolor FTW!

Dazed and Confused

1993 USA

"Dear Future: do not forget Richard Linklater. He's one of the best we've got" – Sam Van Hallgren

Duck Soup

1933 USA

"Well, who you gonna believe? Me or your own eyes?"

A film with the most great jokes per minute, the best possible showcase for the Marx Brothers and something you can watch every single day and never get tired of.

Meek's Cutoff

2010 USA

I love westerns. And I love Kelly Reichardt. So it's a very simple mathematical operation.

Frances Ha

2012 USA, Brazil

If ever was a movie that spoke to me on an utterly personal level it was Frances Ha. And yes, I think Greta Gerwig is everything.
