When I was 16, I started keeping a list of my favourite films. Since then, I’ve continued to update and recalibrate this list on a regular basis, adding the latest films I’ve seen and altering movies’ positions as they rise or fall in my estimations. I try to take as neutral an approach as possible when it comes to such matters as a title’s critical acclaim or place in a given canon; this is all about how much I, as a subjective viewer, enjoy or admire each film.

I wrote an article about this list for Senses of Cinema, which you can read here.
