One of my favourite movie lists - deliciously diverse.

Can we please remove 6 films so it's genuinely 1001 movies, and not 1007? I agree those films are great too, but I want it to really be 1001

I am currently going through this list and i am very pleased so far. It's not intended to make me like every single movie on the list but its giving me some great unheard of gems. However i am slightly puzzled at how the original time machine, music man and the green mile aren't on the list.

"Why don't they take a few of the more obscure movies that no one can find off of the list instead of great modern classics?"

That's not an open-minded cinephile's mentality but an academic's way of thinking. Apart from the lot of commercially-favored / semi-critically acclaimed films, I see no reason on why we should remove "obscure movies" just because close-minded viewers refuse to watch films beyond their film school comfort zone.

Not a terrible list, but I don't have a lot of faith in one that just arbitrarily sticks "Salo" in there for the sake of having a controversial film.

Was it more disgusting than most of what you'll see on the big screen? Yes. Was it poorly paced? Was it just an outlet for the director's sexual fantasies? Shock value aside, was it a good film? Yes, yes, and no.

Salo is an early example of extreme horror (though there are few actual horror elements), but that doesn't mean it is worth watching. Read a plot summary and save yourself two hours.

To be honest, I wouldn't put a lot of trust in the list that was mentioned in the comments, Farenheit 9/11 isn't even on last year's list.

Saying that, if they take Boogie Nights and Princess Mononoke off the list then, as Wise Jake says, they should evaluate how they compile it. It's just absurd.

the new editions are made to be sold, which inevitably – though sadly – leads to all kinds of short-sighted and weird decisions concerning additions and omissions

Shop Around the Corner is probably one of the movies you can see after you're dead.

That and Rififi.

I cannot believe they removed Carol in the 2016 edition. What the fuck are they thinking?
