Cinematic Heaven Series

“Cinematic Heaven” is a series of reviews where I take on some of the movies I would consider to be among my favorites of all time. Not all choices will be traditional and pleasing for everyone (just look at my first review), but I do love them. Not every movie I like will be part of the series, only those that make me feel awe and that I can’t get out of my head for many days, even if I have seen it many times.

In this page I will list and link to these reviews. I will number them, sort of like The Criterion Collection, but that doesn’t mean that the number is the film’s placement in my list of my top favorites of all time. Enjoy the series.
