    There is nothing better than watching a film that you had completely the wrong impression of before you actually watched it. Knowing nothing about the book it was based on, and assuming it was just a typically stuffy period piece, Orlando is frequently hilarious.

    Orlando has long held a spot on my Top 100. I had the poster on my wall when I was in college. But it's one that I've found rather difficult to convince others to watch.

    I only thing I knew about it was that [
    ]. And silly me still assumed that it was going to be a straight drama.

    (Spoilered not because it is a spoiler as such, but because I recommend others to go in with as little info as possible)

    1. The World of Us (2016) - 77
    2. The Guns of Navarone (1961) -
    71
    3. Orlando (1992) - 70

    Navarone actually saves its best for last, with a superbly tense third act, especially the scene[
    ], which is more morally prickly than a lot of these glossy heist-esque films are, ending with [
    ].

    1. The World of Us (2016) - 77
    2. The Congress (2013) - 74
    3. Air Doll (2009) - 73
    4. The Guns of Navarone (1961) - 71
    5. Orlando (1992) - 70

    The Congress is the type of film we need to see more of, a mix of styles and influences, and crammed with ideas, but underlying it all a sense of melancholy at the things we leave behind in the pursuit of the old and the familiar. Air Doll takes Pinocchio and makes it weird, but the best trick is taking the trappings of saccharine cinema (twinkly soundtrack, naive protagonist learning to love) and twisting it into something darker and more desolate.
