The author’s favourite films

Lists of films are often more remarkable for their omissions than for what they include. Citing only ten films can prove to be even a challenge to the immense volume and diversity of the medium. But I’m going to do it anyway, with the proviso that I’m allowed to list a great deal more below.

FAVOURITE TEN FILMS:

  • Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
  • Blade Runner: The Final Cut (DVD release 2007)
  • Chinatown (1974)
  • The Third Man (1949)
  • Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
  • 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
  • Singin’ in the Rain (1952)
  • The Gospel according to Matthew (1964)
  • Vertigo (1958)
  • The Red Shoes (1948)

HONOURABLE MENTIONS:

  • The Godfather: Part II (1974)
  • Under the Skin (2014)
  • Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)
  • Black Narcissus (1947)
  • The Goonies (1985)
  • Reservoir Dogs (1992)
  • Once Upon a Time in the West (1968)
  • Once Upon a Time in Anatolia (2011)
  • Come and See (1985)
  • In the Mood for Love (2000)
