There are times in Cinema, as in any other art, when in order to truly grasp the meaning of what we see

Notes:
1. All illegal substance-abuse is permitted throughout screening.
2. For those who’d like some reading as well, here’s a suggestion:
David Bordwell: ‘Art-Cinema Narration’, in his Narration in the Fiction Film (London:Routledge, 1986), pp. 205-233

(And because taste is irrelevant, all films below are listed in a chronological order.)
