Apocalypse Now

1979 USA

A real journey into the heart of darkness.

Pulp Fiction

1994 USA

A game-changer and a birth of a (sub-)genre.

Citizen Kane

1941 USA

A game-changer and a birth of a genius.

Night on Earth

1991 USA, Japan, France, Germany, United Kingdom

Because we tend to neglect those who 'serve' us and those to whom we serve.

Atlantic City, U.S.A.

1980 Canada, France

Because humanity can be found even in the absolute decay.


1994 Canada

Never the loss and the pain have been portrayed so beautifully, neither before, nor since.

Tokyo Story

1953 Japan

Life itself.


1973 USA

We can go the sensationalist way and call ones monsters, or we could just try to understand.


1972 Italy, France

We are allowed to be sentimental and warm-hearted about our childhood, even if it was set in the darkest of times.

À bout de souffle

1960 France

A woman and a gun…

Further remarks

This is just a personal choice, with self-set boundaries, in a particular moment of time. It is not a 'list'-list, cinema is not athletics to be measured by meters and seconds, not even on the most exact level of craft which would be just one of the components in the process. This challenge was a game, an opportunity to express my passing thoughts and an honour to be considered equal to the greatest thinkers on film of today.
