    Kenji's "Canon": The Big 1000

    Favs/dislikes: 11:0. Kenji's MUBI list "I’ve called this list a canon, cos the original intention was of a wide-ranging canon, including established “classics” but also balancing the domination by Hollywood with a geographical spread. Now i’ve thought better of reinforcing received wisdom and the position of many popular and major films which hardly need promoting and which i’m not so keen on. So it’s become a personal “canon” like Rosenbaum’s 1000. Notable films I intend to see can be found on my “Percy the Porcupine” list. I need to keep extending my viewing in neglected areas of the world- Africa, Latin America, the Balkans and parts of Asia should then be better represented. We didn’t have a TV till i was 12. My first memory of going to the cinema was Fantasia- my introduction to the devil and dinosaurs. Then there was a film called Emil and the Detectives. My small town’s cinema closed when i was 7- TV was too strong a competitor-, my sole memory of films there of “red Indians” on a hill. The bigger films were at the grand metropolis of the county town of 3,000 people 20 miles away, or an even greater city of a few thousand more in the other direction. How i wept when the childcatcher caught them in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and the sky outside had changed, with castles hidden in the majestic domes of cumulo-nimbus. At 11, The Great Escape was the greatest adventure, at 12, El Cid. At 13, i joined the school film society. I gazed in awe at the naked female on a motorbike in Vanishing Point- more fun than that boring Wild Strawberries. In my mid teens, the best discoveries were North by Northwest and Fred Astaire. At uni, on a French course, my special subject was French Cinema of the 30s- Renoir and Pagnol.. but i really got obsessively hooked on world cinema once i’d bought a video player in the late 80s (ooh those Wenders road movies!) and John Kobal’s book The Top 100 Movies (see my list on that); Tarkovsky and Mizoguchi were new names to me. Soon i saw Andrei Rublev and the rain and light had changed. Then a few years on (less availability in those days) it was the turn of Sansho the Bailiff." Notes: #361 Teen Kanya (Three Daughters, 1961) only refers to the segment "Postmaster" #471 Le plus vieux métier du monde (1967) only refers to the segment "Anticipation, ou l'amour en l'an 2000" #671 Fanny och Alexander (1982) specifically refers to the television version 1007 entries because.... #6-10 Fantômas (5 episodes) counted as one entry #339-341 Ningen no jôken trilogy counted as one entry #603-605 La batalla de Chile trilogy counted as one entry Kenji's list now has only 999 entries
  4. Feminist-Minded Films's icon

    Feminist-Minded Films

    Favs/dislikes: 8:0. "As a feminist film theorist and avid moviegoer, my main, geeky goal in life is to see as many female-driven films as possible from every decade, country, and genre imaginable. I’m sure this list won’t please everybody, and you may disagree with my choices, but I tried to be as diplomatic as possible and to keep the list diverse. I certainly haven’t seen every single women’s picture though. The films on this list may not all be widely acclaimed or even directly feminist films, but what some of them may lack in aesthetic pleasures or political correctness is made up tenfold by their feminine bravura and radiant characters. From 1910 to the present, these are the absolute best, most emblematic women’s pictures I’ve ever seen."

    Time Out's The 50 best gay movies: the best in LGBT film-making

    Favs/dislikes: 7:0. Leading directors, actors, writers and activists – including Todd Haynes, John Waters, Kimberly Peirce and George Takei – share the lesbian, bisexual, trans and gay movies they love the most Which movies are most beloved for the light they shine on lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans experiences? Which screen stories involving LGBT characters are the most enduring, whether romances, horrors or comedies? Which are the most groundbreaking, politically or artistically? And which simply demand to be watched again and again? We asked LGBT cultural pioneers – including Xavier Dolan, Christine Vachon, Bruce LaBruce and Roland Emmerich – to share with us their ten best gay movies. Here’s their out-and-proud list of 50 great LGBT movies. Note: #30 is the Terence Davies Trilogy; all three shorts are listed as well (31-33)

    Entertainment Weekly's Essential Movies Kids Must Experience (Before They Turn 13)

    Favs/dislikes: 6:0. There are people out there who have never seen The Princess Bride. They walk among us, holding down jobs, contributing to society, and generally living happy, semi-fulfilled lives. But whisper a perfectly-timed “mawage” in their direction during a wedding, and the resulting blank stare or awkward chuckle will expose an inconceivable pop-cultural blind spot. Someone failed them when they were growing up. In many ways it’s too late for them, but we can still save the next generation. The 55 Essential Movies Kids Must Experience (Before They Turn 13) is a starting point. This isn’t a list of the 55 “best” kids movies, nor a compendium of hidden gems. Rather, it’s a survival-guide syllabus of films that we all need to know to be able to speak the same pop-cultural language, listed in order by when they might be best introduced. It starts with a film that is a perfect introduction to the cinematic universe and ends with one that is an ideal capper before graduating into the world of PG-13 and R movies—and the age when kids begin to make their own theater decisions. These are the cinematic building blocks for future film connoisseurs, movie-literate enthusiasts who can gracefully segue from a George Bailey impression into a spirited debate over whether Han Solo shot first. The important stuff.

We've highlighted over 40 films that we feel represent the best of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender cinema (and no there's no "Brokeback Mountain" or "How to Survive a Plague" because those they're great, these are supposed to be UPLIFTING feel-good movies for Pride).

    Taste of Cinema's The 25 Best Brazilian Movies of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. Brazilian cinema is rich in themes, although many people think it is usually reduced to violence and poverty. The truth is that many directors are unable to make their work commercially available, a few can manage to go through the funnel, going beyond film festivals. There is a mass of Brazilian intellectuals who despise the genre cinema, teachers of film schools stimulate in their students this wrong attitude. A new generation of critics, of which i am a part, is struggling daily to change this sad reality in the long run. Some of these movies that I selected are not even remembered by these veteran professionals, but they demonstrate the versatility, courage and good humor of these artists, usually working with very small budget. From the silent age to the modern times, all genres, drama, romance, thriller, comedy, horror, documentary, children’s movies and action extravaganzas. Here are the 25 greatest brazilian films ranked from good to best.

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. "The nation has voted for their favourite Australian feature fiction or documentary of all time. Here are the top 100 films as voted by you. The response has generated a vibrant debate of favourite screen stories that reflect who we are and who we wish to be as a nation. Family, of course emerges so strongly through these titles. Other interesting elements to note – women directors sit at 26%, 7 films from the Top 100 are from Indigenous directors, David Gulpilil is in 10 of the Top 100, 10 films are from the ADL Film Fest FUND and 22 of the 100 were filmed or produced here in South Australia." Artistic Director and CEO of Adelaide Film Festival, Amanda Duthie said: “The MY TOP 3 #YOUMUSTSEE initiative has given audiences a chance to reflect on the films that are forever stamped in our national psyche, and has generated vibrant debate about who we are and who we wish to be as a nation. Family has emerged as a major theme in the nation’s favourite films. We love Australian cinema and MY TOP 3 allowed us to re-connect audiences with the films they love, making it all the more special to bring the nation’s top 3 films back to the big screen.” Additional info: https://www.if.com.au/the-castle-muriels-wedding-samson-and-delilah-voted-top-aussie-films-of-all-time-in-adelaide-film-fest-poll/
