This is not a list of the films that I think are the "greatest works of art." That would be a different list, and one far more challenging to create. This is, rather, a list of the films I most enjoy watching again and again. Sure, great artistry has a lot to do with my enjoyment in most cases. But the movies I choose to revisit also have a lot to with personal experiences, and the times, places, and relationships that I associate with certain films. So, your mileage may vary. I wouldn't call these the movies I "recommend" the most. But they're certainly the movies I watch the most, the movies I want in my home library, the movies that fill me with gratitude.
