Jaime’s Favourite Films

You can already say that this is my personal canon – the films that speak the most to me as I am right now. This is never a permanent list, for as I keep watching more films, titles are to fall and come in at any point. At some point, maybe the limit may increase for as I see more films and my attachment to them grows, the selection can be quite restricting. Because what’s the point in trying to pride yourself a film lover if you always hold yourself at great limits to something you love so greatly?
