We already know "best" lists are a bit silly, just like every other label we slap on works of art. Discussing film with other buffs is still fun. Off the top of my head, some of my favs--which I also think are very good films--are Fellini's Roma (though Amarcord, Fanny and Alexander, The White Sheik, and La Strada also first rate); The Man Who Would Be King, based on a Kipling story; Cinema Paradiso; Otakar Vavra's Witches' Hammer; Monty Python and the Holy Grail, still funny after all these years; Woody Allen's Love and Death or Interiors; Andrei Rublev; Shoah;Apocalypse Now Redux;the 1970's BBC production of Hamlet, starring Sir Derek Jacobi.
Now we come to the reason for lists of ten: I can count them without taking off my shoes, and setting a limit gets me to stop.
"the sensei" was a spectacular find. i saw it in a store and wondered what it was. i picked it up and it was spectacular.
i thought "citizen kane" was alright
