“Anyone who has ever been privileged to direct a film also knows that, although it can be like trying to write "War and Peace" in a bumper car in an amusement park, when you finally get it right, there are not many joys in life that can equal the feeling. ”

I saw 2001 for the first time this year (the shame of it all), and that film, along with A Clockwork Orange, Dr. Strangelove and others, means I am unable to disagree with this placement. A fine winner.

I didn't vote. I'd have too many Italians on my list, none with chances of a placement, thus I renounced. It's a pity DeSica, Rossellini, Monicelli didn't make the list. For females, I expected at least Sofia Coppola in the top 50.
