Kottke points us to this list of 102 movies every movie buff should see. I'm not sure I buy the list, but I was curious how I stacked up: (Films I've seens are marked with *. Favorites - those which I have seen multiple times or own - are marked with **. The ones I think I've seen or that I've only seens bits of are flagged with ~.)
* 2001: A Space Odyssey The 400 Blows 8 1/2 Aguirre, the Wrath of God * Alien ~ All About Eve * Annie Hall ** Apocalypse Now * Bambi The Battleship Potemkin The Best Years of Our Lives ~ The Big Red One The Bicycle Thief The Big Sleep ** Blade Runner Blowup * Blue Velvet * Bonnie and Clyde Breathless Bringing Up Baby * Carrie * Casablanca Un Chien Andalou Children of Paradise / Les Enfants du Paradis * Chinatown * Citizen Kane * A Clockwork Orange * The Crying Game The Day the Earth Stood Still Days of Heaven * Dirty Harry The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie * Do the Right Thing ~ La Dolce Vita Double Indemnity * Dr. Strangelove * Duck Soup * E.T. -- The Extra-Terrestrial * Easy Rider * The Empire Strikes Back The Exorcist ** Fargo ** Fight Club Frankenstein The General * The Godfather, The Godfather, Part II * Gone With the Wind * GoodFellas ~ The Graduate ~ Halloween ~ A Hard Day's Night Intolerance It's a Gift * It's a Wonderful Life * Jaws The Lady Eve ~ Lawrence of Arabia M * Mad Max 2 / The Road Warrior * The Maltese Falcon * The Manchurian Candidate Metropolis * Modern Times ** Monty Python and the Holy Grail Nashville The Night of the Hunter * Night of the Living Dead ** North by Northwest Nosferatu ~ On the Waterfront Once Upon a Time in the West Out of the Past Persona * Pink Flamingos * Psycho ** Pulp Fiction * Rashomon * Rear Window ** Rebel Without a Cause Red River Repulsion The Rules of the Game ** Scarface The Scarlet Empress * Schindler's List The Searchers ** The Seven Samurai * Singin' in the Rain ~ Some Like It Hot A Star Is Born ** A Streetcar Named Desire Sunset Boulevard ~ Taxi Driver The Third Man Tokyo Story Touch of Evil ~ The Treasure of the Sierra Madre Trouble in Paradise ** Vertigo * West Side Story ~ The Wild Bunch * The Wizard of Oz
