The Jefferson 50: My Favorite Films of All Time

I've been trying to figure out a decent way to make a list of my personal favorite films for awhile. For now, this will work. Out of the hundreds of films that I have seen, these are the fifty films that I deeply treasure the most. Fifty films that I think the most about constantly. Fifty films that have a huge part in influencing all of my creative works. When someone asks me what is a perfect film to me, any film on this list is an answer. Enjoy.
