The PNR Personal Pantheon List – 2009 Update

  • Delicious

For Subject:CINEMA’s third anniversary show, Kim and TC went back into the vaults of movies, and revised their original Pantheon lists, and raising the bar considerably, naming their top 100 films of all time each. These are the movies Kim and TC consider the VERY BEST on the basis of the following factors:

  • Outstanding camerawork and cinematography
  • Outstanding performances from the actors and cast
  • Outstanding script work and characterization
  • The feeling factor – something that touches you and won’t let go

We are proud to present the PNR Pantheon 2009!

(This list as of June 2009 – our next pantheon update will be in June 2011)
