Comments

For every decade that passes, the choice becomes more and more difficult. They don’t stop making films! So, this time maybe not the ten best films ever, but films I can (and do) see over and over again with the same, or increasing pleasure. (Well, Melancholia I’ve only seen twice so far, but I’m certain we’ll meet again…) So, five unhappy or unfulfilled romances, three tales of evil and two Nordic introspections. What does that say about me?
