My favourite films of all time.

"Unlike all other art forms, film is able to seize and render the passage of time, to stop it, almost to possess it in infinity, I'd say that film is the sculpting of time." - Andrei Tarkovsky.


My top 5% of films. Pretty accurately ranked but I'm not too sure and don't feel comfortable with a solid ranking right now, so I've left it unranked for the time being.
