Comments

These are the ten films that I have always loved, that I have found most inspiring and can always learn from, spiritually, creatively, humanely and cinematically. Cinema with original visions that have created a horizon where life is magnificently manifested, through a balance consistently maintained between emotion and conception, art and technology, form and content. In short, ageless classics.
