Ten top films in the history of cinema

From silent films to the great Hollywood studios, from classicism to experimental cinema, from Méliès to Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy in Paul Thomas Anderson’s ‘Magnolia’ or from C. B. De Mille to Steven Spielberg, we could probably conclude that the world of cinema has gone through more changes than 20th century literature. Fast changes. The following selection is completely available thanks to DVDs, yet another change in cinema.


Koker trilogy

ABBAS KIAROSTAMI, 1987, 1991, 1994

Where Is the Friend’s Home?, And Life Goes On, Through the Olive Trees

The main character in ‘Where is the friend’s home?’ is the justification for the self-odyssey that the filmmaker decides to undertake in ‘And life goes on’, an alter ego created by Kiarostami, and in ‘Through the olive trees’ a new actor interprets the main character that interprets a minimal scene from ‘And life goes on’ to exhaustion. Every movie is created from the last one and is questioned, shredded and corrected. This work by Kiarostami is a slow and hidden stun that calmly analyzes the new fundamentals in cinema resorting to humor.
