Sholay and Y Tu Mamá También. Charulata and Cinema Paradiso. These seemingly disparate films are bound together by one thing – each one is terrific. Each one provides a cinematic high. When you watch these films, something fundamental shifts inside. This book isn’t a list of greatest films ever made because films are a subjective passion. This is a list of films that I have loved, films that have spoken to me, films that have inspired me to keep watching films. I hope it does the same for you.
