My Favorite Films

I’d like to call this my personal canon, would like even more for it to consistently track with my star ratings, and would love to pretend I have more a sophisticated and idiosyncratic taste than I actually do. But the truth is there’s no rhyme or reason to this list, really. I just love these movies. Will keep adding to this list as I fall in love with more.
