CATEGORY: Top 100, Loosely Ranked (Jan 2021)

Last Update: 7-Jan-2021
Next Update: July 2021

Making a judgment call to extend this from a previous Top 50 to a Top 100, for the fun of it. It's not like you can't compile a reasonably close list by just looking at my scores anyway, so why not. Also going to update it only twice a year, once at the beginning (~Jan) and once toward the middle (~July).

New (or reinstated) additions:

• ANGEL (Lubitsch, 1937) at #18
• THE LAST DETAIL (Ashby, 1973) at #23
