Michael Wood's list from 'Film: A Very Short Introduction' - part of the highly regarded series from Oxford University Press.

"The following list is not arbitrary, since there is substantial agreement about the importance of these works. But it leaves out a large number of very good films, and I offer it to readers only as a set of suggestions, chances of exciting journeys in the world of cinema and the cinema of the world."
