In case you were wondering, this is kinda my "favorite films" -list. The films here have somehow touched, enlightened, moved, entertained, given me new thoughts or influenced me in a way that they'll always have a special place in my heart, whether the rating is ***½ or *****. I've tried to choose different kinds of films and only one movie from each director to get more variety and make the list more interesting. They are alphabetically arranged.

9.7.2010: Updated the list from 50 films to 75. Still needs some fine tuning though.
