According to P

Fives

I don’t have a favourite film. In fact, even a “Top 10” is something that would vary drastically depending on my mood. Instead, because I am asked so frequently, below is a collection of many of my favourite films in various loose genres somewhat inspired by Netflix’s approach to recommendations. I’ll try to update these lists intermittently. Meanwhile feel free to suggest your own alternative genres, which I will attempt to populate.
