L' EMPIRE DES SENS
The greatest erotic film of all times.
Ozu's greatest masterpiece and a watershed in world cinema.
The perfect marriage of the lower depths and high art. The operatic foundation of neo-realism.
The 400 Blows
The initiator and greatest masterpiece of the French nouvelle vague.
Atanarjuat The Fast Runner
The film that wrote the history of the Inuit people. The best indigenous film I have ever seen.
The best sci-fi of all times.
In film nist
When film changes into real life and vice versa. A brilliant summary of what Iranian cinema is, is not, and could have been.
MÄDCHEN IN UNIFORM
A foundational lesbian film, of high aesthetic ambition and achievement.
The extraordinary birth of realism in Indian cinema.
DEUS E O DIABO NA TERRA DO SOL
The revolutionary film at the heart of the Cinema Novo movement.
Heartbroken for all the films I had to leave out.
