I love all kinds of films, and I'm open to everything, but I have a soft spot for classics, revolutionary films, musicals, silent films, epics, film-noirs and comedies. As my list can clearly suggest, Charlie Chaplin is my all time favorite filmmaker, as all of his films he's played the lead in, are on my list (8 features) closely followed by Akira Kurosawa, Sergio Leone, and Billy Wilder, all loftily represented on my list. The 50's and 60's are my favorite decades, at they are without question…
