The Seattle Screen Scene Top 100 Films of All-Time Project

When the new Sight & Sound poll came out in 2012, Mike and I each came up with hypothetical Top Tens of our own. We did the same thing on the podcast, The George Sanders Show every year around Labor Day. The podcast has ended, but the project continues at Seattle Screen Scene.

The idea is that we keep doing this until the next poll comes out, by which time we'll each have a Top 100 list. Well, I will. Mike will have only 98 because he repeated two from his 2012 list on the 2013 one.

These are the films we've chosen so far. Since letterboxd doesn't allow multiple entries of the same film, check the notes for repeats. I'm starting with my nine lists (that's the first 90 films), then Mike's. The films are not listed in order of preference.

Over here is Mike's list. And here is mine.
