Now that is a list that an old boy like me can relate to. Believe it or not I've never caught up with FANNY AND ALEXANDER and as you know I'm not into Godard (although the two titles listed are among his better films in my opinion) All the others are drop dead classics with CRIES AND WHISPERS, PERSONA, SEVEN SAMURAI and the fabulous WINGS OF DESIRE being among my all time favourites. Just seeing them listed makes me want to see them again.

I'm glad it sparks an interest in going back through them, or in the case of the others to check them out. Because there is no point to these silly lists if it doesn't spark something
