a personal list that mixes all genres. These are the classics
that document the potential of the art of film. Some are masterpieces.
Others are important for their innovation and vision. Some merely
have brilliant, unforgettable performances. Others define their
genre. A list of only the top 100, or even 250 movies, is too
limited given how many different genres exist. Those films in
hypertext link to my reviews, whose number will grow to include
all of these movies eventually. The list will be updated as oversights
are discovered, films are seen again, and convincing arguments
are unearthed in my e-mail (CarterBH@thecityreview.com).
