Film List and Filmmakers

Enter subhead content here


 

Below is a list of 1600 films which is constantly being updated and which has something valuable to say; while many titles seem obscure, they can be viewed on TCM, a favorite channel devoted to excellence.  If a title does not appear on the list, this is possibly an indication that it was unavailable for viewing and consideration.  The expression "If you can't say anything good about ..." should also apply to film as well.  But on a more practical level, failure to understand art may be a failing by the viewer.
