My 100+ Favorite Movies of All Time. Spurred on by Cody Lang of the Intercut Film Podcast, I took on a challenge I hadn’t met since my early college days in 2003. I’ve seen many movies since then, and my tastes haven’t changed as much as they have been enlightened. I suppose I really had no business making a “Top 100” list when I was 20 years old and a relatively young cinephile-not-yet-filmmaker, and I probably have no business making this list now as a 31-year-old independent filmmaker, but man, it’s fun. The ranking here is almost entirely arbitrary and my preferences could change while I type this sentence.
Essentially this list attempts to organize all the films I’ve seen that I consider to be 5/5 or A+ or 10/10 or whatever the preferred grade is.
Hopefully the list continues to grow as I continue to be drawn deeper and deeper into the wonderful history and future of film.
The list is in spreadsheet form here.
