One of the greatest film critics of ever, if not the greatest, lists his 100 greatest English Language Films.

"This list is chronological, although if there are multiple entries for a given year I have ranked those entries, beginning with my favorite among them. The list reflects my one hundred favorite English-language films, then—at a particular moment, that is, on a particular day.
Again, one hundred is a finite, unforgiving number, and everything including the kitchen sink dramas from England can’t make it in.
Here are the one hundred films, then, by year, through 2007."

The final film is "Passages" by Jon Jost. Available on vimeo.
