“Wild, probationary list. More or less the movies watched between 1959 and 1964. I should distinguish then between this group, formative, and the movies which came after, the ones that, I tell myself now, I should (or could) have loved before. List of the various shocks. Once done one note is unforgettable.
-the starting group (for example Rio Bravo)
-movies that you want to admire, but without connivance (Les Dames du Bois de Boulogne)
-special movies to think about, in a solitary mood (for example Freaks, The Unknown)
-flawless movies but not (yet) of personal involvement (Senso)
-officially admirable movies but never watched again (Partner)
-movies discovered too late (It’s a Wonderful Life)"
