Well, that was bracing. I decided to release what I had thought immutable works, knowing that they will roam freely throughout the wider poll. It allowed me to include more colour for one thing.

Simply, these are ten great films which I’ll always reflexively enthuse about whenever they’re mentioned.

Regrets? John Ford. And silent cinema. Although, there are deep roots here to the silent era as well as a consoling wealth of invention in sound.
