CINEMA: FROM CONCEPTION TO PRESENT DAY, A CANON

*in construction*
--------------------------------------------------------------
constructed this with the help of my college film textbook, sight & sound 250, the national film registry list, jonathan rosenbaum's 1000 essential films list, rober ebert's great movies list, remembering what i've seen from prior film courses, other various film lists, etc, wanted to make a great list for myself as well as others for reference.
--------------------------------------------------------------
modern inclusions (2000-present) are essentially what i personally perceive to be some of the most wholly original, innovative, entertaining, educational, cultural touchstones or ambitious experiences of contemporary film, and that will possibly be looked at within the same light in retrospect.
