My Long-Winded Canon (or, my favourite films)

As of 6/11/2022, I have decided not to rank this list anymore because I think it's too hard to really keep track of having this many favourite films all at once. So, right now, it's an alphabetized set of favourites. You can make what you will of me having such a huge number of favourites, but it's my list - I'll do whatever I want. I don't have any limits to this list, because I don't believe any good comes from trying to limit what you love. However, for the portion of this that I have decided to rank, you can click here to find the films I have decided upon for a top 250.
