TV Channel broadcasting "50 Films To See Before You Die"

from brandrepublic.com:

JULY 4, 2006

LONDON - On the eve of the relaunch of FilmFour as a free-to-air film channel, Channel 4 will showcase its list of "50 Films to see before you die", which includes films ranging from John Ford's 'The Searchers' to Sofia Coppola's 'Lost in Translation'.

The selection is likely to cause much disagreement, omitting recognised classics such as 'Bladerunner', 'Star Wars' and 'Citizen Kane'.

The list has been voted for by a panel of film experts including Lord David Puttnam, film critics Jason Solomons and Karen Krizanovich, Channel 4 head of film and drama Tessa Ross and the film director Menhaj Huda.

Channel 4 says each film has been chosen for its unique and creative approach to filmmaking. The season begins at 9pm on Sunday 23rd July with the showing of Sofia Coppola's Oscar-winning 'Lost in Translation', starring Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson, and the FilmFour production, 'Sexy Beast'.
