|Rainer Werner Fassbinder
The greatest film failure.
The most rampantly self-reflexive slapstick film.
Greatest record of the apocalyptic gaze.
Le Charme discret de la bourgeoisie
The perfect match for that surreal feeling of hunger plus sleepiness in the cinema.
CHRONIK DER ANNA MAGDALENA BACH
This is the most enlightening costume drama!
Greatest immersive film.
Cléo from 5 to 7
Consciousness put to a good use.
A Colour Box
Best vision of the flow of celluloid through the machine.
A whole era of sometimes good-tempered and sometimes bad-tempered but always creative gender politics.
WELT AM DRAHT
This is the top show for philosophical sceptics.
In my list I have picked out the best I have seen and enjoyed of a number of different forms and styles of film. The openness of the definition of "the greatest" is a great opportunity to think about how filmmakers have developed so many different ways to use the technology.
