      I think that too many films existing for such a 'top' list.Too many!

    The reason I didn't say top 10 or a set number is that it's impossible to pick out only a few films from an art form like cinema. Thus, I said top movies in general to show that they were my favorite films, not in any order. Please comment on the films themselves, not the amount

      143 films.I understand that you are strictly film buff.I consider myself a film buff.Me,too.But I have seen only 23 films in the list.Very funny.Yes,I counted.I am Turkish.My English isn't very good.I write simple sentences.Thus,I find it difficult to comment on the films(as English).But then,I will say something.I find it Close-Up formally,structurally 'Godard'ien.You said about film:'madonna pap smear'.To me,it is very meaningless.I couldn't understand.

    Such a thing(film buff who aged 13,watched too many films in Criterion) cannot possible in Turkey.What a surprise!Before the certain age,comprehend suchlike films almost impossible.For instance,Tarkovsky films.Spiritual maturity is very important.Without spiritual maturity(but,if you are very smart),you analyze Kubrick's 2001.But this situation don't valid on Tarkovsky's Solaris.Spiritual maturity is essential on Tarkovsky's films.I wonder,where are you from?

    I'm sorry.I don't able to understand your question exactly.I said before,my English is insufficient.I'm 20.I love 'auteur' cinema.If you want,look at my 'top' list.Most likely,I misunderstood your question.Anyway!

      I checked out your top films and love most of the ones I've seen. Also, I saw that you like Nuri Bilge Ceylan, and I love "Uzak"

    Nuri Bilge Ceylan is my favourite director.I love Nuri Bilge Ceylan's films.Additionally,I love him as a human.Also,my favourite film of all time Ceylan's Mayıs Sıkıntısı.Uzak his most well-known film along with Bir Zamanlar Anadolu'da.But Mayıs Sıkıntısı is my favourite.Uzak then comes.I recommend to watch Ceylan's other films.Furthermore,Reha Erdem excellent director from Turkish cinema.Unfortunately,he isn't as famous as Ceylan on abroad.I think that each cinephile must follow Erdem's films.Especially,all cinephiles should have seen his latest film 'Kosmos'.It seems strange to me that don't exist Turkish director in Criterion.Even a single!

    Wow! I thought my 16 years were impressive. At 13 I didn't even know what Criterion was. And a great list of films by the way.

    I didn't get into important film until my 20's...nice list my friend! Vampyr one of my favorite's, is on your list..but where is The Testament of Dr. Mabuse, have you seen it. You should still make a top 10 list, just pretend like you are going to a island for a year and can only bring ten films with you.

      sorry i couldn't shrink it down, but there are so many greats! sorry i haven't gotten around to mabuse yet, but thought the original one from the 20s is amazing and am sure i'll love the other one just as much. in response to your top ten, i love fanny and alexander, hulot, solaris, modern times, vampyr, amarcord, and kiss me deadly. we have exactly the same taste, and i adore each of those. my top ten, including non-criterions, is celine and julie go boating, citizen kane, last year at marienbad, orpheus, apocalypse now, taxi driver, all about eve, some like it hot, do the right thing, and 8 1/2

    Hi, I'm sorry for how late this reply is. I'm not very active on this website, so I only just saw the comment you left on my profile. I'm very impressed with your taste in film; especially at your age! You have a lot of great picks, and I liked reading your thoughts on them.

    just want to further add to the chorus encouraging this insane, inexplicable, and ultimately, obviously impressive feat of youthful film fan completism---at eighteen i've probably seen 500 or so films TOTAL since i was 14 and became interested....still have yet to see many of these. unfortunately i imagine that watching so many films in so short a time and at such a young age will seriously fuck with your ability to remember aspects of the film. but i may be wrong. also-- terrific username

      thanks. I thought that too before I began to revisit films that were important to me like La Dolce Vita and The 39 Steps when I discovered I had such a good eye, I remembered them shot for shot. I've seen 900 since 2011, and remember all of them. btw, you might just have the best top 10 list I've ever seen. Malkovich malkovich malkovich! love the delerue score to shoot the piano player, which is my fave truffaut. brazil is so amazing! i saw the uncut criterion version from the front row of film forum and haven't been the same since. don't even get me started on breathless! the video essay by mark rappaport is amazing! he's my film mentor's kind-of husband. love the cut to black in stranger than paradise. whenever i'm bored i think about this movie. i love third man's cinematography and amazing theme. have you seen heavenly creatures? it's not really related except for the scene where melanie lynskey and kate winslet are being chased around by harry lime. i don't have to tell you about 8 1/2 bc of my username. though i'm not usually sentimental, show me the person who can resist last picture show. may have to rematch vivre sa vie to get all i can out of it, but i still really like it. i'm with woody and you and orson welles on this one too

    Jesus 13, I mean I´m only 15, but I never heard of these movies two years ago. Good choices though, a bit to much IMO at the same time.
