Actually, Eraserhead shouldn't be Top 100, in my opinion. Taxi Driver also needs to move up. It should be above Apocalypse Now at least. Raging Bull needs some Top 20 love too. I also think Singin' should be top 10. It's the quintessential musical and easily greater than Sunrise or Potemkin. Chinatown, Blade Runner, The 400 Blows, and Jaws need boosts. The Gold Rush should be above Modern Times. Oh, and Persona > Seventh Seal.

I know Eraserhead shouldn't be top 100, or maybe not even make the list, but I absolutely love that movie. Taxi driver should move up but I'm not sure it should beat Apocalypse now, though that's going by critics consensus and film festivals/critics circles ratings and rankings, however with other criteria, well even cultural impact...it's close, I'm not sure. Raging Bull is definitely top 20. Chinatown needs a boost, not sure where Bladerunner is. Persona is, as far as I know, considered Bergman's best so that makes sense, though Seventh Seal is a personal favorite. Not sure on Jaws or 400 Blows, how far would you boost them?

Yeah that's just...not true. LOVE Singin in the Rain, even more than Potemkin, but it is by no means the greater movie.

Yeah, I guess I went overboard with that. Singin' still needs a Top 10 spot though. It's probably greater than at least The Passion of Joan of Arc. Also, is Andrei Rublev really top 20?

Based on critics lists and polls, on top of worldwide general acclaim, I still think Singing should round off the top 10. Also just saw Rules of the Game today. I think I need to see it again or dig deeper. Fantastically crafted but far too much going on to get it all first time. Great movie though, not sure I'd say it's the second best in my opinion, but for any real list it's definitely, unquestionably number 2.

I think Singin' in the Rain in the Top 10 is reasonable, and at the least, I'd say it's Top 20-worthy.

Just watched it for the first time today. It was fantastic. Being a fan of Robert Altman, I enjoyed the chaos of the fete and how the camera just picked up and dumped characters as it went along. I used to wonder why it was ahead of the Godfather (the first "great" film I watched and still a favorite), but now I can say that it's spot on this list is well-earned. In fact, I think the top 5 is irrefutable.

Yeah, this is somewhat of an Gosford Parky Altman avant-la-lettre. Deany, if you're an Altman fan, I HIGHLY recommend you watch Grand Hotel by Edmund Goulding. As far as I know, that's really the first instance of a true ensemble character piece. Speaking of a camera floating around and picking up characters as it goes along is a perfect description of this film.

The Godfather is an unanimous #1.

Andrey Rublev is a top 30 film.

Nope. And Rublev is too high at #18, in my opinion. I don't think it's greater than La Dolce Vita or The Godfather Part II, for instance.

I don't think so.

Andrei Rublev is a better film than those, it deserves to be that high

It isn't even worth responding to that guy, Wanta.
