This page shows you the list charts. By default, the movies are ordered by how many times they have been marked as a favorite. However, you can also sort by other information, such as the total number of times it has been marked as a dislike.
This list is a compilation of the 2 volumes João Bénard da Costa penned under the name "Os Filmes da Minha Vida", here translated to "The Films of my Life".
The first volume is comprised of 52 chronicles, 26 regarding his life and 26 regarding the movies. There is also a preface and a postface, which bring the total to 54. They both act as "bridges" between the two pars of the book, and since the first one revolves around Hitchcock's "Spellbound", that movie was also included on the list. The chronicles for these movies were published in "O Independente" between 27/05/1988 and 23/06/1989.
The second volume is comprised of 50 chronicles on the films of his life, plus a preface and a postface. The first five films are those which Bénard da Costa calls "the most beautiful of films", an expression he lifts from Godard's "Berganorama", published on the 85th number of the Cahiers du Cinéma. Those films are the ones Godard mentions in the article ("Tabu", "Viaggio in Italia", "La Carozza d'Oro" and "Sommarlek") plus one: "Vivre sa Vie", by Godard himself. Afterwards, he chooses five films to represent each decade between the 1910s and the 1990s. The chronicles for these movies were published in "O Independente" between 26/01/1996 and 23/05/1997.
"Not so long ago, A.O. Scott and Manohla Dargis decided to [url=https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/ny+times+25+best+films+of+the+21st+century.+so+far./knaldskalle/]name their 25 favorite films of this millennium so far[/url]. More recently, [url=https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/j.+hoberman+25+for+21/knaldskalle/]J. Hoberman decided to play the same game[/url].
I’ve decided to play as well. My only rule in this game, not followed by Hoberman, was to restrict my favorite filmmakers on the list to only one film each –- not always easy, and sometimes downright agonizing."
"With all the subjectivity and inherent limits to the exercise, we have chosen and analyzed important films directed by women which put a change of viewpoint on the table, thus writing a necessary, feminine counter-history of cinema".
Assembled by Jean-Marc Lalanne, with Philippe Azoury, Emily Barnett, Romain Blondeau, Patrice Blouin, Iris Brey, Faustine Chevrin, Luc Chessel, Bruno Deruisseau, Marilou Duponchel, Hélène Frappat, Mia Hansen-Love, Murielle Joudet, Thierry Jousse, Olivier Joyard, Gérard Lefort, Eponine Le Galliot, Elena Lopez, Axelle Ropert, Théo Ribeton, Justine Triet.
"The best romantic comedies deliver an irresistible double sucker punch of meet-cute moments (only Julia Roberts could make prostitution adorable) and aw-shucks sentiment (who doesn't cry at the end of 'Four Weddings and a Funeral'?).
Even better, they're perfect date-night material. We count down the 25 best rom-coms ever -- and believe it or not, Roberts, Renee Zellweger and Meg Ryan don't star in all of them."
