My Giants of Cinema

The lists consists in the top 3 films of my favorite directors, those whom I call "my giants of cinema" (5 films are too many, and only one film is barely representative).

Normally people can rank directors but not favorite films, because every single film is a different universe. The opposite happens to me; I can rank the final psychological outcome a film caused in me, but I cannot rank people, because every mentality is different, and no idea, vision or style is better than the other one. Therefore, the order is alphabetical by first name.

Note: I have dozens of directors I admire, but the list is meant to represent my taste on a very personal scale. This is…
