Nick's Top 100 Films (100 movies items)

""That Ordet is a great film, one of the greatest ever made, only a rash or foolish person will deny. But even less than with other great films can we afford to let the category of greatness limit our response, because Ordet demands more from us, and has more to give, than almost any other film." - Chris Fujiwara "he ending is perhaps the most simple, confounding, shocking, inevitable, breathtaking, breath-giving(?)... in all of cinema." - Adam Kempenaar"
