Vivre sa vie

1962 France

Innovative and touching film


1962 Poland

An interesting film about the price of love


1994 Hungary, Germany, Switzerland

Strange, haunting film, with great cinematography and acting


1966 United Kingdom

I can watch this film many times without being bored. The opposite of a sentimental film, excellent use of landscape.

W.R. - Mysteries of the Organism

1971 Yugoslavia, Federal Republic of Germany

One of the best films mixing truth with fiction, plus full of humour.


1998 Denmark, France, Italy, Netherlands, Germany

Thought-provoking, politically incorrect film, great use of digital cameras


1927 Germany

One of the best films showing work, amazing from a technical perspective.

Peeping Tom

1960 United Kingdom

An excellent horror film and a metaphor about the power of cinema.

Mulholland Dr.

2001 France, USA

Mesmerising film, on a par with Lynch's Twin Peaks series.

Crimes and Misdemeanors

1989 USA

One of Woody Allen's best films, an investigation into the problem of moral luck. Excellent acting.

Further remarks

I'm sad there are no new films on my list, but nothing has excited me recently.
