The Long Day Closes

1992 United Kingdom

An absolute masterpiece. Childhood memories are woven between a brilliant soundtrack and a film history lesson for the soul in this extraordinary work of art that I can only describe as a one-of-a-kind film experience. This is what films are made of.

Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles

1975 Belgium, France

There are two films in my list that have one thing in common, and that is the colossal presence of Delphine Seyrig, one of cinema's true contributors and innovators. In Jeanne Dielman, Chantal Akerman molds and uses that presence to fill each and every single minute of her extraordinary film with such intensity and clarity that could only be matched by a brilliant director and her team.


1961 United Kingdom, USA

A true clash of the minds: Kubrick + Nabokov in a film that is kind of shocking they could make in the time they did it. Rewatching it over time reveals new levels of twisted wit and sadness in all its performers.

The Piano

1992 Australia, France

One of the most visceral film experiences I had as a very young moviegoer (I was 11 when I saw it) and the impression has stayed intact. Holly Hunter's performance and Stuart Dryburgh cinematography is something from another world.

India Song

1975 France

Marguerite Duras was a force of nature and a true visionary.

The Age of Innocence

1993 USA

One of the best voice-over narrations in film history and it's non other than the master Joanne Woodward.


1965 Mexico

Of all of Buñuel's films, this is the one that captures his very singular point of view on religion, desire and human nature at his purest. A hilarious and profound experiment that has one of the best cinematic presence in all Mexican film history: her name is Silvia Pinal.

My Brilliant Career

1979 Australia

A film filled with such light and warmth in it's core that it's very hard to forget.

A Brighter Summer Day

1991 Taiwan

A masterpiece from start to finish.

Les Demoiselles de Rochefort

1967 France

Catherine Deneuve Françoise Dorléac Michel Legrand George Chakiris Grover Dale Danielle Darrieux Michel Piccoli Gene Kelly Agnès Varda Ghislain Cloquet // All these brilliant people led by the master charmer named Jacques Demy.

Further remarks

My list has no particular order, these are the ones that keep coming back to my mind every time I hear a list of this kind being made. The minute I press submit to this list, my mind is gonna make a different one immediately after.

Only a brief note: of all the work by the late master Agnès Varda I just couldn't pick only one, every single film made by her is a wonder.
