Editor of Top 10 Films, Dan Stephens is usually found pondering his next list. An unhealthy love of 1980s Hollywood sees most of his top 10s involving a time-travelling DeLorean and an adventurous archaeologist going by the name Indiana.

    Great to see ‘Shampoo’ making it on to one of these lists. It’s a 70s gem that seems to get lost in the shuffle these days.
