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.

    I love Sidney Lumet so it’s quite interesting to see what films he loved and, perhaps, was influenced by.

    Some I’ve seen seen and others I haven’t. I am very deficient in the foreign film department.

    Really enjoyed taking a look at this. Thanks for posting.
