Rob Woods

I have been a member of the BFI for 40 years and love a range of movies. I especially have a passion for collecting silent films. My top ten movies are: Casablanca (Curtiz) Les Enfant du Paradis (Carne) Heaven's Gate (Cimino) Tokyo Story (Ozu) Seventh Seal (Bergman) Picnic at Hanging Rock (Weir) Dersu Uzala (Kurosawa) Charulata (Ray) Monsieur Verdoux (Chaplin) City Lights (Chaplin) Other films I love include: The Magnificent Ambersons (Welles), Raging Bull (Scorsese), Paris Texas (Wenders), Sunrise (Murnau), In the Mood for Love (Wong Kar-Wai), Mulholland Drive (Lynch), The Godfather (Coppola), The Leopard (Visconti) Andrei Rublev (Tarkovsky) and The General (Keaton). To me a great film is one that can withstand repeated viewings and you never get fed up watching it.

  • Favorite director: Charles Chaplin, Ingmar Bergman, Andrei Tarkovsky and Martin Scorsese
  • Favorite Criterion edition: Seven Samurai (Kurosawa)
  • Most wanted in the collection: Les Visiteurs du Soir (Carne) and the Marseille Trilogy (Pagnol)
