Basically, I can't fulfil the task of suggesting the 10 best films of all time, because the different formulations and formats of cinema seem to me to be too diverse to be able to summarise them in such a restrictive ranking. In this respect, it has become a whim list, that is, a list based on whims, which tomorrow would already involve completely different titles. Listed are films that have challenged me and given me great pleasure. After watching them, I knew again why I love spending time in the cinema or an exhibition space so much.
