Top 250 Films that Impressed & Influenced Me the Most

Adrian Țofei, December 17, 2016

Latest Update: May 17, 2018

  • Some impressed and influenced me in my childhood and adolescence, others recently. In some cases I considered them to be great films as well, in other cases I didn’t consider them great, but still had a general impact on me or had a certain great scene that impressed me or a great acting performance. The ratings are on a scale from 1 to 10 and reflect my current opinion (which changes a lot over time).
  • If one of your favorites is missing, it doesn’t necessarily mean that I didn’t like it, I might have not seen it yet, or maybe it impressed or influenced me in a way, but didn’t make my top.
  • Listing these films doesn’t mean support or acceptance of the sometimes illegal, unethical, immoral or simply wrong behaviour of some of their creators and stars, nor that I agree with their opinions on any subject matter. It also doesn’t mean past or present approval of all the ideas contained in the films.
