The list comes from a somewhat famous post in the Russian segment of the Internet attributed to S.A. Filippov, a lecturer in Film History at the Lomonosov Moscow State University (the largest and oldest university in Russia), Faculty of Journalism, and also a film critic and a VGIK graduate (the biggest Russian film school).

Some items have more than one film, those are meant to be equivalent substitutes: 2, 8, 10-11, 19, 36-38, 41, 45, 54, 61, 76, 88-89, 102-103, 114, 122, 135, 138, 143, 145-146, 151, 158.

The author mentions a number of directors he considers to be the most significant authors in cinema, and recommends all of their films for watching: Michelangelo Antonioni, Ingmar Bergman, Robert Bresson, Luis Buñuel, D.W. Griffith, Akira Kurosawa, Fritz Lang, Roberto Rossellini, Andrey Tarkovskiy, Lars von Trier, Orson Welles, Federico Fellini, Sergei M. Eisenstein.
