My All-Time Top Ten Films...?


The film website They Shoot Pictures, Don’t They? has just recently complied and published a new list of 1,000 greatest films as voted on by 2,041 critics, filmmakers, reviewers, scholars and other likely film types. I was asked to participate this past December, and the following is the list of the 10 films that I considered to be the best among the too few I've seen. The numbers beside the films indicate their rank on the TSPDT's list of 1,000. Of course, my list of favorite films changes all the time, but these 10 films happened to be on it at that particular time.

Bicycle Thieves (Vittorio De Sica) 14

The Passion of Joan of Arc (Carl Theodor Dreyer) 20

Ugetsu (Kenji Mizoguchi) 47

The Mirror (Andrei Tarkovsky) 68

Sans Soleil (Chris Marker) 201

Charulata (Satyajit Ray) 319

Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors (Sergei Parajanov) 492

Through the Olive Trees (Abbas Kiarostami) 545

The Age of the Earth (Glauber Rocha) n/a

Why Has Bodhi-Dharma Left for the East? (Bae Yong-kyun) n/a
