The answer to your request is of course impossible. I have no notion of "All Time" and speaking of "The Greatest" frightens me. I still wanted to try and answer your request, to try and face the contradictions. I felt it would have been too easy and comfortable to just evade.

My choices are brief moments in all time, important moments to me, next to a myriad more. Except for one film in the list, I have watched each of them at least two times and I know I will watch all of them again. All these films echo into my life, they stay with me. And I know they echo into other lives as well. After all, it is great to meet through films.
