SIMILAR MUBI LISTS I RECOMMEND: They Shoot Pictures Don’t They 1000, Jonathan Rosenbaum’s 1000, The Mubi Forum Users’ Top 20 Poll, Blue Kim’s 666 (extended to over 1000), Dionysus67’s 1000, Roy Rezaali’s Forget Film School, David Thomson’s Have You Seen?, and the communal Mubi 1000. I only wish we had 1000 by Apursansar, but his lists by decades will do fine.

A SHORTER LIST OF FAVOURITES .

~~

We didn’t have a TV till i was 12. My first memory of going to the cinema was Fantasia – my introduction to the devil and dinosaurs. My small town’s cinema closed when i was 7- TV was too strong a competitor-, my sole memory of films there are of “red Indians” on a hill. The bigger films were at the grand metropolis of the county town of 3,000 people 20 miles away, or an even greater city of a few thousand more in the other direction. How i wept when the child catcher caught them in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and the sky outside had changed, with castles hidden in the majestic domes of cumulo-nimbus. At 11, The Great Escape was the greatest adventure, at 12, El Cid. At 13, i joined the school film society. I gazed at the naked female on a motorbike in Vanishing Point- more fun than that boring Wild Strawberries (which I still can’t take to). In my mid teens, the best discoveries were North by Northwest and Fred Astaire. At uni, on a French course, my special subject was French Cinema of the 30s- Renoir and Pagnol..- but i really got obsessively hooked on world cinema once i’d bought a video player in the late 80s (those Wenders road movies!) and John Kobal’s book The Top 100 Movies (see my list on that); Seven Samurai and 2001 inspired awe, while Tarkovsky and Mizoguchi were new names to me. Soon i saw Andrei Rublev and the rain and light had changed. Then a few years on (much less availability in those days) it was the turn of Sansho the Bailiff.
