Essential Films To Watch

This list took a long time to make. These films, perhaps, aren't the most technically brilliant ones, but rather, the ones I enjoyed the most. Please comment, whether you agree with something, or disagree, I'd love to hear! As you might be able to tell, I tried to order the list, but that was a tragic mistake. After careful consideration, I just gave up, so here, in no particular order, are my all-time favourite films. I didn't stop listing until I felt I had added every film that I wanted to present. What was supposed to be an ordered, top 100 list, turned out to be a randomized list.

P.S. This took me a ridiculous amount of time. Damn whatever impulse in my body that drove me to make this list.
