Current Top Ten of ALL TIME

My list of favourite films often fluctuates, but it’s a list that I enjoy doing…

(as of 20/11/2018)

10.  Shame (2011)  – A bit of a depressing one, but so effecting, and masterfully directed by Steve Mcqueen, with an INSANE central performance.



9.  My Night with Maud (1969)  – I adore Eric Rohmer, and this is the most beautiful tale there is about love, and religion.



8. The Social Network (2010) – A film I can never tire of watching; Fincher giving an absolute masterclass in telling a story.  Another cool film that gives me chills in almost every scene.

7.  Ruby Sparks (2012) – Stunning film about writing and relationships.  It speaks to me.

6.  An American Werewolf in London (1981) – Quite simply the most fun that can be had watching a film.



5.  There Will be Blood (2007) – A master work of art from Paul Thomas Anderson with two era-dominating performances from Paul Dano and Daniel Day-Lewis.

4.  Seven (1995) – I have seen this film several times, but it’s still a mystery to me.  The most alluring film of all time.



3.  The Exorcist (1973) – I find this film so deeply moving, and it is perfect in every way.  William Friedkin is a hero.



2. The Godfather (1972) – Possibly literally the greatest film of all time and every time it’s finished I have to take a few moments of awe-inspired silence.



1.  Frances Ha (2012) – I had a strong affection for this movie as soon as it begun.  Such lovely film-making, that is both melancholic and heartwarming.
