|2001: A Space Odyssey
So important in the post-WWII years in creating 'cult' cinema.
Narrative structure is so important.
Ozu is great; this is a powerful example of his contributions to cinema.
So many Hitchcock films could be included but Rear Window is a masterpiece for sure.
À bout de souffle
A breakthrough film. (I wish I could include The 400 Blows as well.)
So many possibilities for Fellini but I pick this one.
Man with a Movie Camera
I'd love (as with so many other of my choices) to pick everything by this director.
2001: A Space Odyssey
Epic. And powerfully influential.
