Is it bad that my list of life-changing films doesn't include substantial works like "Citizen Kane," "La Dolce Vita," "2001: A Space Odyssey," "The Godfather," or anything along those lines? There seems to be an unspoken agreement amongst film critics, namely that, if one hopes to be taken seriously, one must grow up with and appreciate only those films that have made a significant cultural impact. I don't see why it has to be that way. This list does not represent the greatest films ever made -- it merely represents the films I personally hold dear. Would any of these make it onto your lists?
What did you think of this list?
