Gregs and BNZ,
thx for the clarification.


soooo...

top 100 out of 400 with a write-in option - it's like the NHL playoffs where all but the last place teams make it to the playoffs

notable omissions:
Coal Miner's Daughter
Norma Rae
The Sting
Kramer Vs. Kramer

and of course:

Animal House

Depends on the movies. I think 75% of the greatest movies (on lists) I've seen were because of school.

Someone's feelings just got hurt. What about Ordinary People (1980) ?

Just about anything by Chabrol, Lelouch, Truffaut, Kieslowski, and Almodovar.
For sheer action & adrenalin the original French 'La Femme Nikita' with Anne Parillaud, not the US remake with Bridget Fonda, or the German 'Run Lola Run'.
IMOP the French b/w gangster movie "Rififi' is one of the best of the genre. I still miss Jean Gabin.
Werner Herzog's movies, esp. 'Fitzcarraldo,' "Das Boot,' and some of Wim Wenders films, but not the bs U.S. remake of his 'City of Angels.'
I Love Fassbinder's films, and who could ever forget Fritz Lang's classic 'M.'
I really liked Jim Jarmusch's 'Night on Earth.'
For myself, as a fan of spy movies, I have to include 'The Spy who came in from the cold', and the original 'Day of the Jackal.'
There are many on the original list, and many that are not.
For a visual feast try 'Indochine' with Catherine Deneuve. The first film I saw her in was 'Belle de jour.'
