I did consider making this a more representative spread of countries, genres, directors etc, but while I was writing the list, it became abundantly clear that for me personally, a dynamite script with delicious dialogue is a fundamental part of what makes a film truly great. So these are my favourites, the films I can watch over and over again to the point where I know every word by heart, and still not get tired of them. If it helps, I would have had Bicycle Thieves at number 11.
