As of finishing the top 500 films I have a few thoughts. First too many second class films by first class directors are edging out first class films. Second, Europe isn’t the world, we need more films from the Asia other than Japan. Thirdly, the following films shouldn’t be in the top 500 or on the list at all in my opinion. I would love anyone to try and defend them. That way I can understand what people see in them.
