My Top 100

My personal top 100 films that I've seen. Didn't include documentaries, stand-up specials and mini series in here as they would be hard to compare with. These are my personal top 100 and not what I think are the 100 greatest cinematic achievements of all-time.

Obviously there will be some recency bias. The order isn't fixed and is evolving each time I watch another film or gain a new insight into a film I've seen before.
