I don't harbor many illusions of one day being famous but if I did become famous, or well-known in some field or another, I think the best perk would be the possibility of being asked to do a Top Ten list for the Criterion Collection website.
I know it's a relatively small dream but small dreams have a better chance of coming true. And just in case, here's what I would pick. A fairly twee list, now that I look at it, pretty short on the big hitter foreign films. But I gotta be true to myself.
No pithy commentary. I'll save that for the real thing.
