100 years in 100 films

I spent way too much time on this.

Basically the films I want to see the most from each of the last 100 years. Only films I haven't already seen obviously. No hard-and-fast rules against multiple films by the same director, but I tried to spread it around, though a handful do occur twice.

About half of them were made in the US, with France and Japan coming in second and third. The rest was made in various countries mostly in Europe and Asia.

Inspired by a bunch of people but primarily lgauge.
