I’m a film maker, film lover and all round film geek. This list began with a list of 100 films that, as a graduate student, I suggested Yale University purchase for the film library it was creating in the early 1990’s. It became a journal of movies and television shows that engaged me, impressed me, and entertained me over the years. Lanni’s List currently includes nearly fifteen hundred films. The List does not represent every film I’ve ever seen; but rather only those which I believe are worth watching.
