The Film Gourmand Posted by FilmGourmand 6 years ago in 12:14 am
Those who are interested in cinema know that variety of sites in Ru-net offer the lists of the best 1,000 films in the history of cinema, composed by the newspaper New York Times. I have decided to refer directly to the original source. And I has found out that Ru-net’s list does not completely coincide with the specified primary source, and rather strong differs from it. I can not say, to tell the truth, in what, better or worth, direction, but distinctions are visible that is called, with open years.
First of all, the list made by NYT, does not range films by numbers, and gives them in alphabetic order. The list walking on Ru-net, begins with a film "Citizen Kane". However, it is not the most important thing. The main thing – that is evident in the list NYT its insufficiently attentive relation to a Russian-language cinema. I will notice that in original, instead of Ru-net’s, list of the best 1,000 films there are only 4 (!) Russian-language films: "Alexander Nevsky", "Cranes are flying", "Little Vera" and "Eyes black". And that’s all! What do you think: whether it is possible to trust objectivity, impartiality, and, hence, to professionalism of composers of this list? All films, certainly, are marvelous! But if there anybody who agrees that ONLY THESE films can represent a Russian language cinema in the list of 1,000 best films of all times and the people?
