1963 Italy, France

Fascinating and dream-like, Fellini invites us to experience the life of a character as seen through his own eyes, past, present and future, his perception of reality – it's romantic, hectic, cheerful and nostalgic. 8½ is a masterpiece and an essential contribution to filmmaking.

2001: A Space Odyssey

1968 USA, United Kingdom

Exploring themes such as mankind, technology and life, Stanley Kubrick pushes the technical boundaries of the art without compromising his distinctive and poetic storytelling, taking us into a reflexive, unforgettable and entertaining journey – an absolute tour de force.

Pulp Fiction

1994 USA

Heavily influenced by world cinema, Quentin Tarantino crafts a fragmented tale of low-life characters, an electric ride enhanced by a talented cast, sharp script and exceptional directing – an impeccable late-20th-century gem.


1990 USA

Bold, poetic and visually engaging. With absolute control of the craft, Scorsese unfolds a remarkably told story of reckless mobsters. Almost a genre of its own, Goodfellas represents a milestone in modern cinema and film storytelling.


1972 Italy, France

Fellini delivers a magical, nostalgic and colourful experience with Amarcord. Unique and charming characters converge in a dark period of history, but this film is a clear example that there’s more to life than our current circumstances. It’s people, feelings, dreams and everything around us – definitely one of cinema's greatest achievements.

Last Year at Marienbad

1961 France, Italy

Provocative, experimental and daring, the film plays with the notions of time and reality to immerse us in a different world. Written by Alain Robbe-Grillet and directed by Alain Resnais, the film’s powerful visuals and approach take us into a surreal and compelling journey – an undeniable contribution to the art.

Barry Lyndon

1975 USA, United Kingdom

Perhaps the most beautiful film ever made, Kubrick’s masterful skills as a director are once again displayed in this perfectly crafted epic. From ground-breaking achievements in cinematography and extraordinary performances to flawless use of music and confident storytelling, Barry Lyndon is a fundamental piece in the medium's history.


1976 USA

David Lynch’s first feature remains one of the most audacious debuts in independent cinema. A nightmarish trip with an unsettling atmosphere where neither the main character nor the audience can escape. Experimental and brave, Lynch defines a style that will become his signature and sets himself up as one of the most influential filmmakers of his generation.

Citizen Kane

1941 USA

Orson Welles' remarkable debut signified a major turning point in film history. From a technical and narrative point of view, his first approach to the art form is fearless, innovative and risk-taking. A flawlessly crafted character study that surprises with every view.

There Will Be Blood

2007 USA

Paul Thomas Anderson reflects on capitalism and human nature in this superbly told story of a despicable oil tycoon. With an impressive eye to detail, every aspect of the film is carefully crafted. Led by an outstanding Daniel Day-Lewis, the film serves as proof that cinema is more alive than ever.
