Just saw Time Magazines list of All-Time top 100 movies. Think the critics at Time have seriously lost it. I mean, who in their right mind would pick The Purple Rose of Cairo as the one Woody Allen film that made it to the list? Or pick Notorious as one of Hitchcock's two best films? Or Smiles of a Summer Night as one of Bergman's?
And don't even get me started on the sheer idiocy of including Jackie Chan films but leaving out A bout de souffle. And have these people ever heard of Italian cinema?
I know it's easy to carp about lists in general - there's always going to be tons of good stuff that gets left off. But at least most lists give you the satisfaction of knowing that everything that's one there is good stuff. I'm not sure I can say that for this list.
