My personal canon as of August 25, 2013. In making a list like this, I do think it's important to show some originality and shed some light on lesser seen films, so if I can omit Casablanca for Married to the Mob, of course I'm going to do it. I love so many movies that this was a difficult task, leading to decisions based on factors like how many films the director has on the list, rather than movie quality. I could make this list again tomorrow and have it be completely different, but I think that would go for any person who really loves movies, so that's enough of that.
