Below is a subset of Roger Ebert's list of great films containing only those in his book "The Great Movies", published in 2002. The Apu Trilogy, Decalogue, and Up Documentaries are all broken out separately, hence more than 100 listings.

An excerpt from Ebert's introduction to the book:
"They are not 'the' 100 greatest films of all time, because all lists of great movies are a foolish attempt to codify works which must stand alone. But it's fair to say: If you want to make a tour of the landmarks of the first century of cinema, start here."
