Vive La France
The list author says: ""In 2010 I published My Absolutely Insane Attempt To Rank All Cinema. In that book I rank every movie I've seen, with ad hoc commentary. Here are my favorite films from France."
Breathless (The Criterion Collection)
"Godard's French kiss to America."
"Irene Jacob is amazing beautiful. This is like watching your destiny come to life."
The 400 Blows (The Criterion Collection)
"Truffaut's first feature and still his best."
Band of Outsiders (The Criterion Collection)
"I love the Madison. Snap!"
Shoot the Piano Player (The Criterion Collection)
"Truffaut's film noir gangster comedy. Beautiful."
Cleo from 5 to 7 (The Criterion Collection)
"Varda's contribution to the French New Wave."
La Jetée / Sans Soleil (The Criterion Collection)
"La Jetee is amazing. Marker stops all motion and tells his story through freeze frames. Brilliant and sad."
Forbidden Games (The Criterion Collection)
"This one makes me cry. It's so pure and heartfelt."
Le Million (The Criterion Collection)
"In 1950, Sight and Sound ranked this as one one of the greatest films in the world. I guess they've forgotten it, but it's still awesome."
"Truffaut is so damn charming."
M. Hulot's Holiday (The Criterion Collection)
"Brilliant sight gags."
The Umbrellas of Cherbourg
"A sad musical."

Bed & Board: Domicile Conjugal
"Truffaut riffs on adultery (again)"

Hiroshima Mon Amour (The Criterion Collection)
