Great Movies

The dictionary defines the adjective great in numerous ways, with some of the words used to describe its meaning being notable; remarkable; exceptionally outstanding; important; highly significant. Generally speaking, that's the definition I decided to base this list of Great Movies upon.
In my opinion, a great movie is a film that contributes something worthwhile and meaningful to the state of cinema. It's a film that pushes the boundaries of previously established conventions and proves to be a successful project with regard to all of its components: the acting and directing, the screenplay, the cinematography and other technical aspects. Hence, most of the films you will be able to find on this list have in some way or another changed…
