I Included one film per director with their body of work having a slight impact on their placement on my list.
The color palette and cinematography are wonderfully charming as are the play with sound conventions and self-referenciality. All this with the brilliantly honest and poetic dialogue also usual in Godard films. It simply made me happy.
It's a lovely film on so many different levels, just about as perfect as any film I have seen.
Wonderful visually and poetically. The angels' ability to hear the thoughts of strangers is genius. Overall great concept.
So original and amusing thanks to Charlie Kaufman but brilliantly executed by Spike Jonze.
I'm a sucker for voice-over narration and Jules and Jim has a lot of it.
One of my favorite documentaries ever made.
Captures what young love is like perfectly and simply.
Not the best Malick film because of the violent subject matter, but brilliant nonetheless because it is one.
I really appreciate simplicity in film and this one in particular is pleasant.
Visually stunning, von Trier is a master of his craft. Dancer in the Dark, Dogville, and Melancholia desperately need to be in the collection.
Had to have a De Sica film in my list. This one is touchingly simply.
