The state of the game

The trawl through the greatest movies cinema can bring continues with gusto. It has lead me to some dangerous and personal thinking.

I make these judgements on other peoples lists but what about my own list? Well I can reveal that there WILL be one. I am working on it now, however I am including some very special rules…

  1. The list is the list, it is in progress and will be revealed at the end of the project.
  2. If I review a film from either the IMDB list or the BFI list and believe it is worthy of inclusion in that list i must include it in mine making room for it by removing one of my own choices.
  3. No series, video collections or non-movie movies (for example Histoire(s) du Cinema due to its multipart format is not a valid inclusion)
  4. The list is in no particular order
  5. I can add rules at any time but cannot remove them.

So far films that will be included are

  • City Lights (BFI)
  • Alien (IMDB + Personal choice)
  • The Battle of Algiers (BFI)

Films that WONT be making my list:

  • The Dark Knight Rises (IMDB)
  • La Jetée (BFI)
  • Histoire(s) du Cinema (BFI)
  • Ugetsu Monogatari (BFI)

I am open to any suggested rules or inclusions…
