Rather than temper this exercise in pure value judgments by incorporating some criterion of historical importance, I have simply selected those works which, when encountered, decisively expanded my notions of cinematic possibility. Some I loved instantly; others I was slower to warm to; all are films which have, at this point in time, taken up some form of permanent residence in my mind.
