Behold, a list of the best films ever made. Just kidding! There is no such thing as "best" in this case. Taste is subjective.
Before you start reading and getting ready to share your opinion in the comments, a few disclaimers:
– These are all great movies, but I won’t call them “the best movies ever made.” Just movies that are crucial viewing for a ~varied and comprehensive~ film vocabulary. Who decided what was crucial and what wasn’t? Me, because I wrote the list. You are welcome to suggest additions.
– I did my best to keep it to one movie per director and per genre, but exceptions were made.
– This list will continue to grow! So, if your favorite movie isn't on here, it may be very soon!
