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.


The Searchers



‘The Searchers’ is a dark and tragic western, a story about a biblical obsession interpreted by a neurotic –or solitary– individual who lives in the desert of Texas and searches for a place to die with his daughter, who he fears to have conceived. John Ford was aware of the fact that a movie only requires what is necessary, however, behind its laconic stylistic self-restraint hides a sophisticated architecture that, in the first 12 planes, narrates a miraculous concision of the entire life of a family.
