These are my hundred favorite feature films, as of November 2018, presented unranked in alphabetical order. A few notes:

  • Only feature films are included (including full-length documentaries, but excluding short films and miniseries)
  • I have not see most films in the world; by my reckoning I’ve watched about 700, so this list is far from exhaustive.
  • Titles are presented in English translation when not natively in English.
