Totally 5 Star, in my opinion by MarcW
Starts a bit fantastic. But a lot of works focused on reality follow in this list. Mostly great, timeless classics from around the globe, that are not only wonderfully executed, but also got me right there. Often films are included, which are chosen less in terms of technical grandeur, but because i love them. Both bitter and sweet ones, sometimes spicy and even salty ones. Well and i love the surreal. But i do not like superfically bizarre stuff enough to include it ina five star list, even when it is well done and funny, as it lacks some sort of existentialism, or what ever you wanna call it for the particular film.

Starts a bit fantastic. But a lot of works focused on reality follow in this list. Mostly great, timeless classics from around the globe, that are not only wonderfully executed, but also got me right there. Often films are included, which are chosen less in terms of technical grandeur, but because i love them. Both bitter and sweet ones, sometimes spicy and even salty ones. Well and i love the surreal. But i do not like superfically bizarre stuff enough to include it ina five star list, even when it is well done and funny, as it lacks some sort of existentialism, or what ever you wanna call it for the particular film. Hopefully i didn’t choose any esoterical stuff, at all. Sometimes poltiical views may have their part in my choice for five shiny stars, only because of that vage humanist-emotional thing, which i share with the film makers. Still, particularly often allegories by some favorite and famous directors are included (Tarkovsky, Kurosawa, Zhang, Bunuel, Antonioni, Bresson etc.), disregarding whether these guys would like to drink tea together or not. Honestly many popular films are listed here, but less hip stuff and rarely blockbusters. Sadly, not enough films directed by women are included (5?), yet. In the tricont production conditions are difficult, not only in terms of five stars. It’s a shame how many masterpiece may be missing because of inequality. Still i’d like to recommend watching the list, again, like others. But find that one strangely fitting, tastefull movie, involving a brain bug, that is 5star satire! :-)
