    Surely this should be listed as a mini-series on IMDb (as it's clearly designed as a self-contained single-run series, albeit a long one), and therefore eligible for that top list (once it gets enough votes).

    No idea how to make that edit on IMDb though...

    Highly recommended.
    In this series Cousins challenges the existing consensus on what makes 'classis cinema' by stating that Hollywood classics are anything but. His two main criteria for what makes movies great are cinematic and narrative innovation and social relevance.
    This in itself is a fresh and provocative approach giving plenty of input for healthy debate on what is important in film. And surely not everyone will agree with his point of view. I know I surely didn't.
    The very least Cousins does is show that film is indeed a global phenomenon by including fragments from films from the most unlikely places. Through this series I've learnt about films and directors that I probably would have completely missed otherwise.
