Great Movies

Here, I have written critical analysis of why each of these movies are classics of their genre and stand out amongst other films, and/or why they’re simply excellent films.

These ‘great movies’ are movies that are either of technical brilliance, cultural significance, or movies that I really really like…or all of these things.
