Citizen Kane

1941 USA

The real beginning of cinema!

Sherlock Jr.

1924 USA

How far have we evolved from the imagination and cinematic pleasures of 100 years ago? Is cinema in fact regressing?

Point Blank

1967 USA

Everything that makes up this movie is cinematic.

Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid

1973 USA

Violent, beautiful, wild, elegant.


1960 USA

Hitchcock! Hitchcock! Hitchcock!

Taxi Driver

1976 USA

Are you talking to me?


1961 Japan

Everything an action movie should be.

E.T. The Extra-terrestrial

1982 USA

The power of cinema to encompass all generations.


1983 Hong Kong

East and West, silent and meteoric films, slapstick and Kung fu, violence and comedy, tradition aand subversion, and one who became a genre himself.

Top Secret!

1984 USA, United Kingdom

A film comedy, a comedy that only a movie can do, a movie that you can’t imagine unless it’s a movie.
