After a great deal of agonising, I've managed to assemble my top 20 favourite films. This list will evolve and change over the years, being subject to new great films I see, mood swings, life experiences, errors in judgement, relationships ending or beginning, changes in perspective, influences and maturity, and so on.
There were so many titles I had to exclude. 20 is such a small and restrictive number when you love movies. This list is not the 20 best films ever made, but it's a list of films I've embraced for reasons that are personal and mysterious even to me, films that have helped me to understand myself.
