200 Favorite Films

I don't have one favorite, one #2, and so on, but just movies I love enough to watch many times over. Some are works of art, and some are just dear to my heart. I believe that no movie is too difficult and no movie is too simple. Hollywood blockbuster, silent, obscure art house, action, comedy, musicals, they all have something to offer. Some just more than others.
