Alternative 100

Hard work, as comparing so many different films is almost impossible. In the end, I tried to present as varied a range of films as possible, but films that have made a lasting impression on me: so a very subjective list. The top ten were difficult and because many of the great classics are somehow a "given", I generally chose more recent works. I probably would have included The Turin Horse which according to its reviews must be great, but I haven't had a chance yet to watch it. I thought 100 would be difficult to achieve but in the end I had to exclude some excellent films that I wouldhave liked to put in: additional movies by Kiarostami, Hanecke, Rohmer, Malick, Altman, Fellini, Visconti, Bela Tarr, etc.
