Default The Best Movies Ever Made

I like the totally subjective things the best possibly.
Enough are from the bad things totally however.
I set off because of this one thread.
The film is my kind art beside the music and the literature.
And impossible to tell it, which one my favourite film.
I would be able to make a statement about the topic in generalities rather possibly.
So my favourites:
Bacsó Péter:A Tanú
(Péter Bacsó: The Witness)
Kurosawa Akira films
Frederico Fellini films
Marcello Mastroanni films
John Boorman: Leo the Last
Lindsay Anderson: If
Michelangelo Antonioni: Blowup
Sam Mendes: American Beauty
Claude Zidi: Les sous-doués
A so sudden enumeration may not be full of course, consider well for a cross-section.
Myself am surprised actually, how many good films there are on the world!
Terry Gilliam films may not be missing even from a short enumeration:
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

I can't stop it.

Good pics. I was actually thinking I would have to say Gilliam before I clicked.

Too many to think of. First films that come to mind are Chaplin's. Arguably his best work are shorts but The Kid and The Gold Rush are some of the GOAT(s) in my book.
