An impossible task, but a great big adventure trawling through the synapses and recalling films which have moved, informed, inspired, and brought on many more emotions. Ultimately one is perhaps inevitably drawn to films which have played a pivotal part in either one's upbringing or one of the many chapters of life, which allows for many errors and omissions. Vive le cinéma in all its cornucopia!
