These are the ones that I just automatically feel warmest toward looking at my favorites list, things I rewatch every year or so, but it's admittedly all shit I first saw before I was like 22 and I'm 28 now. I think I got burnt out the more I binged and became harder for things to settle. It's been a couple years since I was that hardcore, though, and kinda getting the itch to explore again so maybe fresher eyes will help. I've found new faves with TV and music in the years since so I know I'm not dead
1. Celine and Julie Go Boating (Rivette, 1974) 2. Wax or the Discovery of Television Among the Bees (Blair, 1991) 3. Bicycle Thieves (De Sica, 1948) 4. Les miserables (Bernard, 1934) 5. La maman et la putain (Eustache, 1973) 6. The Thing (Carpenter, 1982) 7. City of God (Meirelles & Lund, 2002) 8. La dolce vita (Fellini, 1960) 9. The Tree of Life (Malick, 2011) 10.

doubtful i'll have anything else enter it for the rest of the year
Seeing Celine and Julie in the next 2ish weeks, expecting a masterpiece. Your Top 20 here is crazy consistently great (Francisca aside, which I'm willing to admit I might just not have been in the right frame of mind for when I put it on) from what I've seen, good picks.
All right, so I hadn't been able to make a proper favorites list for several years now but recently I've felt this surge of enthusiasm for it and after some days of assembling it I finally have a Top 100 of All Time! Here's it in full if anyone's interested: letterboxd.com/dmitr_jango/list/top-100-of-all-time/
