Lists by DrMulholland
In 1972, Tarkovsky told film historian Leonid Kozlov his ten favorite films. He first wrote down the directors that he liked and then he picked his favorite movies, other works by the directors whose movies made it on the list are recomended by Tarkovsky as well.

I was challenged to name the best 20 films of all time, which is hard because I haven't seen all films of all time, and even with those I have seen twenty isn't much. I decided to cheat and list 20 features plus 5 short films - all amazing achievements in cinema.
I'm leaving out some really good films by a lot of great directors, and instead I'm heading for what I consider sublime. I reserve the right to change my list.
This is a film buff's confessions. This list IS my deepest shame, a pain in my conscience... but by confessing my sins I hope I can be forgiven.
