Ok, so this and the movie version are not perfect. What the hell is Scream doing there with Der Himmel Über Berlin? I understand their reasoning but... Nope, that's not right. People, I also don't care about spoilers. I wan't to be inspired to see or read, not abandon them because I know too much. So the quality of the essays are extremely varied. Despite all this it's still fun to slog through them both. Not for considering myself "cultured" and "civilized" for finishing the lists but more like getting to know works I would never have chosen myself or would never have come across, therefore there's a big chance for finding incredible gems.
