    I imagine this is what it would be like to choose one’s favorite family members; it can be done, but there’s pain involved:

    All That Heaven Allows (Douglas Sirk/1955)
    Black Narcissus (Michael Powell/1947)
    Bringing Up Baby (Howard Hawks/1938)
    Contempt (Jean-Luc Godard/1963)
    Killer of Sheep (Charles Burnett/1979)
    Meet Me in St. Louis (Vincente Minnelli/1944)
    Sansho the Bailiff (Kenji Mizoguchi/1954)
    Vertigo (Alfred Hitchcock/1958)
    Wagon Master (John Ford/1950)
    The Wind (Victor Sjöström/1928)

    ….I’m going to press “Post Reply” before I change my mind for the 33rd time (no kidding).

    I’m still confused. Is the purpose of this topic to list your top 10 greatest films of all time —or— your top 10 favorite films of all time? I think there is a distinction. If it’s the former there should be a greater responsibility with choices, there needs to be foreign films and work by the masters of cinema. It’s intimidating because I’m still trying to make my way through the great films and if I gave my top 10 it would be limited right now since I haven’t seen everything.

    Yeah, it seems like people are taking this different ways. It’s also hard because how do you know when have you seen enough to be able to rank the greatest of the medium? I feel there’s always something one hasn’t seen, the process really can be endless. Then, there are people like Martin Scorsese who have openly admitted that they don’t watch new movies, which is also limiting and shows why Sight and Sound had only one or two films post-2000. All I know is my watch list is way too long lol. The last truly great film I saw that I hadn’t seen before and had an impact on me was The Passion of Joan of Arc, which blew me away, especially paired with Richard Einhorn’s Voices of Light score. I have a bunch of Kurosawas from Christmas I’m excited to watch. Plus The Wild Bunch and The Searchers. I rewatched Lawrence of Arabia on tcm honoring Peter O’Toole, and that was one of the greatest productions ever with some of my favorite all-time shots, but unfortunately it wasn’t in hd quality.
