Simone Barbes ou la vertu
It is one of the very few films on earth that does not sexualize its protagonist (although it takes place in a porn theater), it is the one film that is BEYOND feminism.
There is everything in this film: humor, beauty, grace, politics, history, humanism.
Dalla nube alla resistenza
The post-modern version of Okraina.
Tea and Sympathy
It's not because I'm filling out this poll from a typical American campus, but this is one of the films that most delightfully, albeit with a certain hidden rage, thwarts gender clichés and portrays unique and complex characters.
Desire vs Society. What it always will be all about.
Splendor in the Grass
Desire vs Society bis.
It is an indispensable film, that I always want to show.
MOI, UN NOIR
This is the movie of my life. Is this poll in order of preference? In any case the lucky number 7 suits him well. It's THE film that gave birth to the Nouvelle Vague and that revolutionised modern cinema, underground.
A King in New York
Forerunner by the biggest genius of the XXth century.
The Hurt Locker
Bigelow is my favourite contemporary Hollywood director.
