JEF'S FAVES - CURRENT BIG LIST: Top 10 SciFi/Fantasy Flicks by CentaurJef
MY PERSONAL FAVORITE FILMS OF ALL TIME (all genres): #1: BLADE RUNNER – MUCH much more beneath the surface than alot of critics are willing to look at; not to mention it’s a fucking amazing work of visual art!! #2: THE PILLOW BOOK – Unfortunately fucked up in the transfer from screen to video. So currently, the only way I think it should be seen is on the big screen (even though I have the DVD). Maybe now that more and more people have larger-sized screens, the director and distributors will seriously consider reworking the BD release (whenever THAT’s going to happen!!!) back to how Greenaway composed it for theatrical exhibition.

… and just so you know, it took me over two weeks to compile and select the positions for each film; which I did very gingerly and with a great deal of thought. Probably because I LOVE each of them dearly for one reason or another (or many), and it was important to me not to place any film in a position not befitting the level of my admiration/adoration for it.

So, for me, each number placement speaks to an actual level of importance to my opinion of what makes a truly great queer film. That being said, I will give the caveat that #100 just barely ranks worthy in my opinion (waaaay too much bitching and moaning, but hey, they’re catholic in 1970 – what else were they going to do?!).

Then, 99 to around 80 I would say are a bit more interchangeable in importance, whereas 75 on up to Number One I would say fit more what I stated before about being in a specifically ordered slot. Okay, enough about all that – enjoy!

…and now, the Big LIST!!
