    Paste's The 100 Best Comedies of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. For some, slapstick and farce hit the spot while more cerebral fare falls flat. For others, deft character studies that find the humor in our all-too-human foibles are the only comedies worth watching. In considering the top comedies ever made, there are as many flavors of culturally specific comedy as there are cultural sensibilities (and, of course, there are plenty of folks capable of enjoying more than one type). Faced with this challenge, we’ve decided to approach this particular list in a manner that seeks to guarantee laughter and amusement for the people most likely to look to it when seeking something that will bring some joy to the daily grind. These films have been chosen (and ranked) based on how many laughs we think they are likely to generate for the modern audience. Ultimately, when creating a list of the best comedies ever it’s all about the laughs. Every film on this list should be a dependable source of grins, chuckles and guffaws. After all, life is hard, people can suck, misfortune may indeed lurk around every corner, and we all know how it ends. Let the films on this list of best comedies ever made—and the laughter they elicit—help balance the scales. [b]Note:[/b] Because so much of the impact of comedies often relies on language, we’ve only included English language films on this list.

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. [b]Pardon the Cinema, vol. 2![/b] The team of the first French podcast on cinema does it again with a new opus. New films, new classics to (re)discover, new nuggets lovingly unearthed, new great moments of the 7th art...

  8. BFI's 100 Bible Films's icon

    BFI's 100 Bible Films

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. From The Passion of the Christ to Life of Brian, and from The Ten Commandments to Last Temptation of Christ, filmmakers have been adapting the stories of the Bible for over 120 years, from the first time the Höritz Passion Play was filmed in the Czech Republic back in 1897. Ever since, these stories have inspired musicals, comedies, sci-fi, surrealist visions and the avant-garde not to mention spawning their own genre, the biblical epic. Filmmakers across six continents and from all kinds of religious perspectives (or none at all), have adapted the greatest stories ever told, delighting some and infuriating others. 100 Bible Films is the indispensable guide to this wide and varied output, providing an authoritative but accessible history of biblical adaptations through one hundred of the most interesting and significant biblical films. Richly illustrated with film stills, this book depicts how such films have undertaken a complex negotiation between art, commerce, entertainment and religion. Matthew Page traces the screen history of the biblical stories from the very earliest silent passion plays, via the golden ages of the biblical epic, through to more innovative and controversial later films as well as covering significant TV adaptations. He discusses films made not only by some of our greatest filmmakers, artists such as Martin Scorsese, Jean Luc Godard, Alice Guy, Roberto Rossellini, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Lotte Reiniger, Carl Dreyer and Luis Buñuel, but also those looking to explore their faith or share it with lovers of cinema the world over.

  10. Rohit K. Dasgupta & Sangeeta Datta's 100 Essential Indian Films's icon

    Rohit K. Dasgupta & Sangeeta Datta's 100 Essential Indian Films

    Favs/dislikes: 7:0. Although the motion picture industry in India is one of the oldest and largest in the world—with literally thousands of productions released each year—films from that country have not been as well received as those from other countries. Known for their impressive musical numbers, melodramatic plots, and nationally beloved stars, Indian films have long been ignored by the West but are now at the forefront of cinema studies. In 100 Essential Indian Films, Rohit K. Dasgupta and Sangeeta Datta identify and discuss significant works produced since the 1930s. Examining the output of different regional film industries throughout India, this volume offers a balance of box-office blockbusters, critical successes, and less-recognized cult classics. While many studies of Indian films focus on a single language’s contributions, this encyclopedia offers a comprehensive guide to productions from across the country in various languages, including Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Malayalam, Assamese, Punjabi, Marathi, and English. 100 Essential Indian Films is an engaging volume that will appeal to both cinema scholars and those looking for an introduction to a vital component of world cinema. The movies are ordered alphabetically by their english title.

Each essay features a detailed description of plot, notable trivia tidbits, critical reviews, and interviews with actors and filmmakers. Sidebars feature quirky details, including legal disclaimers and memorable quotes, along with movie picks from a-list actors and directors.
  12. RadiiChina's 100 Films to Watch to Help You Understand China's icon

    RadiiChina's 100 Films to Watch to Help You Understand China

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. The history of cinema has shadowed the history of modern China, turning a lens on more than a century of radical upheavals that have given form and substance to the People’s Republic as it stands today. In the spirit of exploring this vast and complex country through the layer of its big-screen output, RADII presents our list of 100 Films to Understand China. This is not a ranked list of 1-100 — we’re not trying to tell you the 100 “best” or “most important” films to come out of China. Our goal is to give a round and deep profile of the country through the medium of films made here in the last 100 years or so. This list is a syllabus of movies across the spectrum of time, space and quality that, taken together, provide a snapshot of today’s China, the forces that shaped it, and the directions in which it’s moving looking forward. We’re focusing primarily on films made in mainland China, since these come from a different cultural context and industrial framework than films made in Hong Kong or Taiwan. In assembling the list we reached out to filmmakers, producers, distributors, curators, critics, experts and industry insiders, who gave us an eclectic mix of mainstream titles, cult classics, and deep cuts. They provided these via the category headings that we provided and therefore do not necessarily endorse all of the selections you’ll find here. To make it easier to navigate, we’ve divided the 100 films up into 10 categories with 10 movies each: - Pre-war Shanghai; - The Mao Years; - Opening Up; - Indie & Arthouse; - Documentaries; - Wuxia; - Pop(corn) Culture; - China Today; - Bad Films; - Animation.
  13. Paste's The 100 Best Film Noirs of All Time's icon

    Paste's The 100 Best Film Noirs of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. Since its coining in 1946 by French critic Nino Frank, the term “film noir” has been debated endlessly: Is it a genre? A subgenre? A movement? A trend? A commentary? A style? For the purposes of this introduction, let’s call it a response. We think of noirs as urban stories, but that’s not always the case—for every L.A. and N.Y.C.-set saga, there’s a small, heartland tragedy. We think of a never-ending, rain-soaked night—sunlight replaced with neon and nocturnal reflections, the optical trickery of mirrors and shadows—but in contrast, the days of noir scorched its characters. We admire its heavily stylized approach—exaggerated camera angles, tension-crafting mise-en-scène, flashbacks, deep focus and trademark shadows—but also its neo-realist and documentary-like experiments. However (un)conscious a reaction, noir resonates to this day, with several neo-noir cycles beginning with the Cold War era through Gen X and the millennials. And while a healthy share of neo-noirs make our list, the classic period remains the most telling—context is critical. Then there are the sub-classifications within the subgenre: proto-noirs, foreign noirs (like the British “Spiv” cycle), neon noirs, and, of course, neo-noirs. We’ll start with the following 100 titles. Some 70 years after the term “film noir” was first uttered, take a trip through the screwed-up terrain of the mid-century psyche, with all its sex, lies, and crime scene tape. Let’s get going—don’t say we didn’t warn you.
  14. Mad Movies Magazine's 100 Films de Genre à (Re)Découvrir's icon

    Mad Movies Magazine's 100 Films de Genre à (Re)Découvrir

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. Mad Movies is a French cinema magazine created in 1972 and specializing from its inception in fantastic cinema. It deals with all trends in genre cinema: fantasy, science fiction, horror and thriller. "Mad movies - 100 films de genre à (re)découvrir: le guide ultra libre d'un magazine culte" is a book released in 2019. A festive and pioneering guide far from the expected best of, and which, through completely new texts, sees itself as the ideal companion or the hoped-for trigger of a curious, juvenile and decompartmentalized cinephilia. The book is organized by 10 categories: Slashers (1-8) Post-Apocalypse (9-18) Zombies (19-27) Vampires (28-37) Serial Killers (38-46) What the Fuck (47-55) Diabolic (56-64) Phantoms (65-76) Sci-fi (77-86) Monsters (87-100)
  15. Timeout's The 100 Best Hong Kong Films's icon

    Timeout's The 100 Best Hong Kong Films

    Favs/dislikes: 7:0. Hong Kong was once the Hollywood of the East. At its peak, around the early 90s, the local movie industry was first in the world in terms of per capita production as well as the second largest exporter of films, second only to the US. The influence of Hong Kong cinema can be seen far and wide. Bruce Lee remains a global icon, his martial arts movies are classics; the groundbreaking action of The Matrix would never have come about if not for John Woo films and the action chereography of Yuen Woo-ping; Quentin Tarantino ripped off Ringo Lam’s City on Fire for his debut, 1992’s Reservoir Dogs; Moonlight owes much to the style of Wong Kar-wai films and the auteur was an influence acknowledged by Sofia Coppola when she collected the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for Lost in Translation. So with such a massive cultural legacy, what are the best Hong Kong movies of all time? We present to you this definitive ranking of the best films made in Hong Kong dating as far back as the 1930s. Note: "The Blue and The Black" and "Chinese Odyssey" Duologies are considered one entry hence 102 titles.

    Favs/dislikes: 8:0.

The list was edited by Fabio Ferzetti (film critic of the newspaper Il Messaggero) in collaboration with the director Gianni Amelio and the writers and film critics Gian Piero Brunetta, Giovanni De Luna, Gianluca Farinelli, Giovanna Grignaffini, Paolo Mereghetti, Morando Morandini, Domenico Starnone and Sergio Toffetti.

    Cool Material - The 100 Movies Every Guy Should See

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. Cinematic history is littered with gems. In the hands of a brilliant director, a skillful cast, or a visionary writer, a masterpiece can be born. There are so many, in fact, that selecting just 100 as essential viewing was extremely challenging. We debated. We consulted reviews. We rewatched forgotten films. After weeks of doing so, we’ve come to the conclusion that these are the 100 films every guy should see. If you haven’t seen them all, it’s time to fire up Netflix.
