Top 100 My favorite Movies of All time

La Collectionneuse (Eric Rohmer, 1966)
La Collectionneuse (Eric Rohmer, 1966)

– Making this list was not an easy process at all, because there are so many directors whose work i love and adore deep to the bone. These 100 films are not necessarily the best films in my opinion, but they are films which touched me and provoked my emotional feelings the most. Do me a favor and go check out my directors’s list Here, here and here for a better understanding of my taste.
– Despite the temptation of throwing in the whole oeuvre of my favorite directors’ (like Kurosawa, Bergman, Wenders…), i would like to keep this list from a wide-angle lens as much as possible, hence only one film per director.
– This is a personal list, and cinema is strictly subjective – so spare us dicussions such as “Why the hell is this film even on this list?” or “Where is the film A of director X? How can you miss that?”
– These films are not listed in any particular order.

    1. Những tên được tô đậm không phải là một phim như các tên khác mà thường là trilogy hoặc 1 series nhiều phim có liên quan đến nhau về chủ đề và nội dung của một đạo diễn.


  1. Mình thấy list này có vẻ mang tính vinh danh các đạo diễn nhiều hơn là top 100 những phim mà bạn thực sự thích nhất đúng không ??


    1. Thực ra là một kiểu trộn lẫn của cả hai. Nếu nói về thuần top 100 những phim tôi thực sự thích nhất thì sẽ có sự thiên vị tới những đạo diễn yêu thích của tôi và như thế thì không được rộng cho lắm nên tôi quyết định lọc như này.

      1. Mình nghĩ sự thiên vị đấy nó làm nên tính unique trong top 100 của mỗi người. Btw, list của bạn rất tuyệt, còn khá nhiều phim mình chưa được xem
