Charlie's Must-See Films

My friends Charlie and Rikki have a list in their office of films that everyone ought to see. This is it.

In Charlie's words: "Remember - this was a list designed to educate someone in 'culturally relevant' cinema... It is a must see list in the sense of "you won't understand half of anything without watching these" rather then a list of necessarily "good" films. Though, that said, most of them are good."
