My Top Ten Favorite Films of All Time

The films that have influences me in more ways than one, are not too many. Though I have been watching a whole lot of movies, especially in the recent past.

There are some movies that I watched as a kid or as a young adult and had thought that they shall remain engraved in my psyche forever have sadly lost their charm, some have dated to a great degree and others must have seemed novel because of my immaturity and infrequent exposure, but now seem stale and unworthy of celebration. 
Yet there are some personal preferences of mine which have moved me, provoked me, challenged me and have unconsciously shaped my thoughts.

These are the movies which have stood the test of time, for me.

Some I am too fond of in an obviously biased manner, maybe the viewing experioence, the associations are too deep, and have manifold increased the inherent charm of the films.

Some such films have been featured, actually only ten of them, and the most recent viewing among them happens to be the one which I considered as the best movie seen in 2007, no wonder my distancing from that very movie hasn't been made as yet.
Others on the list are films seen much earlier, the oldest viewing happens to be the only musical in the list too!
These are the films:
