The Catch-Up List

CelluloidThis is my confessions page.  It’s the enormous list of movies that proves that I am not nearly as literate in movies as I wish.  I welcome suggestions to add or to prioritize.  Of course for the former, you’d have to know what movies I have seen.  There are plenty of movies not on this list with which I feel a strong desire to reacquaint myself, but that’s for another list.  The “Movies I Chronically Underestimate” list, probably.  I used a number of lists, including the AFI Top 100BFI Top 100, and simply combing through famous directors’ credits.
