100% L'Atalante (1934) True filmic poetry which turns a simple love story into a raw and off-beat fairytale. Given its monumental reputation, L'Atalante does not disappoint.‐ Film4

5/5 96% La Dolce Vita (1960) In spite of its thematic ugliness, this is a stunning-looking trawl through the Italian capital, with Ekberg's impromptu paddle in the Trevi fountain still the films enduring image.‐ Film4

4/5 96% An American in Paris (1951) It's a simple love story, but also a celebration of dance, music and art, embodied in the somewhat synthetic notion of Paris as the spiritual home of the arts, and the painterly aesthetic of the film as a whole.‐ Film4

58% 1900 (Novecento) (1977) This is a handsome film with fierce and heartfelt ambition that succeeds in capturing something of the extreme social turmoil of pre-war Italy.‐ Film4

3.5/5 70% The Magic Flute (2006) Flashes of inspiration but not enough, one suspects, to cause a stampeding horde of cinemagoers to beat down the doors of the Royal Opera House.‐ Film4

5/5 94% It's a Wonderful Life (1946) You'd have to possess a very hard heart not to find something to love in this story.‐ Film4

3/5 90% My Life to Live (It's My Life) (Vivre sa vie: Film en douze tableaux) (1962) Invigorating, revolutionary, joyfully iconoclastic and spontaneous.‐ Film4

95% La Chinoise (1968) Prophetic, powerful, disconcerting, infuriating, and surprisingly funny.‐ Film4

100% The Warui yatsu hodo yoku nemuru (The Bad Sleep Well) (1962) It's still as visually striking as anything you will see by this director.‐ Film4

93% Johnny Guitar (1954) Compelling, confounding and at times verging on the downright camp, this picture takes a slow- burning but startlingly vivid look at humanity in the outlands.‐ Film4

88% Oklahoma! (1955) Whatever your interest in the sexual politics of the 1950s musical, this is a good-looking, sweet-sounding piece that'll surely have you hot under the collar.‐ Film4

91% Détective (1985) Jean-Luc Godard's hotel-based film noir borders on farce: as conventional as he gets, but still inventive, subversive and darkly comic.‐ Film4

94% 2 ou 3 Choses que je Sais d'Elle (Two or Three Things I Know About Her) (1967) Electrifying sound and image collage of 24 hours in the life of a Parisian housewife by France's most difficult and defiant director, Jean-Luc Godard‐ Film4
