Director: Federico Fellini
A sentimental favorite about life in a small Italian town in the 1930s,
it’s the Fellini film closest to my heart.
A Streetcar Named Desire
Director: Elia Kazan
Brando makes the powerful first impression, but it’s Vivien Leigh’s performance that remains richly nuanced.
Cries and Whispers
Director: Ingmar Bergman
Bergman strips to the bone when it comes to the essence of human relationships. No exception here.
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Director: Tim Burton
Burton’s artistic vision of the operatic Stephen Sondheim score redefines the standards for musicals transported to film.
Death in Venice
Director: Luchino Visconti
One of the rare examples of a film adaptation of classic literature living up to the greatness of the original material.
