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.


A Journey to Italy



A British married couple travels to Italy on vacation and Rossellini achieves to make it obvious that the couple can be a mutually remorseful volcano that fights routine to irreversibly hurt each other. The external reality blends in with the character’s internal reality and the red-hot and slow pace dominates the stage, and the movie has no clear start or ending but a succession of gaps and time-outs that serve to explain what cannot be seen in the movie.
