									                                 Cinema Is Forever
       Cinema is my great love. If I’m ever granted another life I want to live it as a film
director. For more decades than I care to say I’ve been seeing some 200 to 300 films a year,
captivated by the form as both art and entertainment.
        My love runs not only broad but deep. Any film I see I submit to a thorough check of all
related facts: who is the director, what else has he/she made, what do critics say, where does
the film belong or doesn’t belong in film history. I have a good personal library and the internet
makes any search ridiculously easy. IMDB is a tremendous resource; the article “List of Films” in
Wikipedia provides a breakdown not only by year, genre, and country but also in amazing
categories such as “films shot in x city,” “films based on magazine stories,” and more.
         I have no idea how many films have been made since the Brothers Lumière enchanted
Parisian crowds with their “Sprinkler Sprinkled” in 1895 or George Méliès took them to the
moon. One hundred thousand? Several times that? But for the present lists I’ve had to make
choices and the obvious ones were my personal inclination and preferences. The result, I hope,
still gives a good overview of film history. In many cases, I’ve selected certain films of a director
and not others, with good reason. Spielberg is a great director and his films always watchable,
but I’ve never enjoyed any as much as “Duel” and “E.T.” Bertolucci’s “The Conformist” or “Last
Tango in Paris” are unforgettable but his “Dreamers” an embarrassment. Same for Kubrick for
“Eyes Wide Shut” compared to “Dr. Strangelove” or the inspired “2001: A Space Odyssey.” My
criteria have been a) landmark films (or their directors) that have brought to world cinema
something new and different which one way or another influenced what came after, and b)
films that remain favorites—because of their quality, because they are close to our hearts,
because they have become part of our collective memory. As I said, these are personal choices
and anyway, it’s all cinema, it’s all good.
