1. The House is Black--I don't care if it's her only film, I don't care if it is short, it is such an amazing film, it counts for three
2. A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night-- Some girls don't have to be afraid of the dark. The dark should be afraid of them.
3. Titus-- Uneven, but with so many marks of brilliance, it deserves recognition
4. Salaam Bombay-- A lighthearted film about horrible poverty
5. Persepolis-- What does it mean that three of my chosen films are made by Iranians?
