I would love to read this, but apparently I am not authorized to read it. Anyone know why?

I tried to move it out of the Pre-delete Forum so everyone can read it bt either I forgot how or you can;t do it on this board. Maybe Oscar Guy can do it.

A group of cinephile friends -- most of whom go back to college, and almost all of whom are published writers -- decided to come up with a group consensus composite list of the 10 Best Films (or 10 Favorite Films or 10 Top Films) such as is done in SIght & Sound magazine every ten years.

I think if a film means something to you and it speaks to you emotionally, that's a sign of quality in at least one respect.

Basically - with so many titles still to be seen - I'd call this the list of the "best films I've seen so far".
