Lists by Zorgly
I spend far more time looking to the great movies of the past than I do keeping up with the great movies of the present. Hopefully with this list I can get some good feedback and recommendations, as I always have trouble finding contemporary movies to watch.
Note that the exact order is pretty rough; don't take it too seriously (I know I don't).
Also note that the year 2000 is included in this list.
Latest Additons: Boyhood (2014), Particle Fever (2013), Nostalgia for the Light (2010)
Self explanatory. In alphabetical order, with brief comments explaining why I like (and why you should see) certain movies. Maybe someday I can add comments to all of them.
Feel free to leave comments, criticisms, and suggestions through the comment system or a private message.
Great New Additions: Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? (1957), Que viva Mexico! (1932), Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (1974)
This is simply my personal list and record of the 50 films that mean the most to me. There are clear biases, clear omissions, and of course, as I have not seen everything, new entries will appear, old ones may fall off, and re-arrangement will surely occur. Any feedback, be it suggestions, criticisms, compliments; if you simply want to talk, leave a comment or send me a message.
I'm slowly adding more complete comments as well, to replace some of the more tiny or superficial appraisals that were here before.
If at least one person goes and watches one great film from this list, my work is done. The rest is surplus.
