    I guess I've just found too many examples where "Great" being those that are "universally touted" as being a very dubious criteria, and in almost every art form I can think of, has or would produce mixed results at best. Classical music would possibly hold up the best, as its critics tend to be much more invested in and educated about their music, and hold it up to highly deserving ideals (such as Beethoven, Mozart, Brahms, Bach, Wagner, Mahler, Schubert, etc...). Whereas, Rock music, for instance, touts many "greatest albums" that could be replaced by far more astonishing selections.

    Since others have chosen 13 favorite films, I'd prefer to do so as well, if you don't mind. In no particular order:

    1. A Room with a View (James Ivory)

    5. Local Hero (Bill Forsyth)
    6. Au Hasard Balthazar (Robert Bresson)
    7. Lawrence of Arabia (David Lean)
    9. Notorious (I'm a big Alfred Hitchcock fan, so it's difficult to pick just one film by him. On a longer list, I'd have included "Rear Window", and "Young and Innocent", etc..)
    10. The Leopard, or Il Gattopardo (Luchino Visconti--the uncut, non-dubbed Italian version)

I also like a number of films by Preston Sturges--The Lady Eve, Sullivan's Travels, Hail the Conquering Hero, etc.

    10 Favorite television shows or series:

    Brideshead Revisited (Granada television, Anthony Andrews, Jeremy Irons, Claire Bloom)
