The Act of Killing
A complete out of body experience and a reinvention of the documentary genre. To have perpetrators reenact their mass killings to make them understand what they have done and through that go into the psychological depths of their actions. A deeply disturbing and humanising film. Just wild.
The Lives of Others
The story of how a man of the system starts to live his life through the loving and vibrant couple he is spying on is a beautifully written and told story. At the same time a historical local piece and a universal story of our need for human connection. Acting is phenomenal. The music, the cinematography, the editing. Everything clicks.
Once upon a Time in the West
A spaghetti epic. A personal story of vengance mixed with the story of a nation in change because of the forthcoming industrial revolution. A silent hero and an old fashioned man/villain fighting both his personal enemies and the new modernistic thoughts and ideas.
This film has everything. Humour, romance, action, an abundance of epic scenes, epic cast, epic SCORE.
A beautifully told story about class. One of those films where you never know what's gonna happen next. Keeps you at the edge of your seat for it's entire duration.
Visually mesmerizing, phenomenal acting, funny and profound.
Just pure brilliance.
A wonderfully slow neo-noir sci-fi masterpiece about what it means to be human. Poetic, disturbing and hopeful at the same time.
Inspired by the true Parisian riots in 1993, this film totally blew me away when I saw it in high school. The energy between the three main characters is just breathtaking. Filmed in black and white, sharply structured and authentic.
A brutal yet poetic film about racism, violence and friendship.
It's hard to put into words why this is a good film. You just stumble across it and disappear into a universe that has its entire own logic. Nothing makes sense yet everything makes sense. There is no band.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Do you really want to delete your heartbreaks from your memory? Such a fun take on the romantic drama and just an abundance of creative ideas, poetry and sensibility. And what a cast. Kate Winslet, Jim Carrey, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Wilkinson, Kirsten Dunst, Elijah Wood. OMG.
Eyes Wide Shut
Jealousy embodied. This film cuts into the core emotion of jealousy with a precision only a master like Kubrick can manage.

A vampire film about friendship, bullying and revenge. This is a genre film at it's best.
It's impossible for me to make a list of the greatest films of all times, but I've made a list of my best film experiences of all times. I'm not sure they would all make it to the list if I (hypothetically) sat down and watched all films ever made. Sometimes the experience of watching a film is for me better than the actual film and vice versa, depending on under which circumstances you watch the film. Some films age better than others and some films you just watch in the exact right moment where it strikes a chord within you.
Most of the films on my list are films I saw in the very formative years between age 13-25. Films that changed my perspective on certain aspects of life and the world and became films I saw over and over again.
