I'll be adding more titles as time passes. Also subtracting some, based on either waning enthusiasm or a film's debut on an official list. See below to check out the abundant films that I've deleted for the latter reason. In fact, I've had to delete so many films that the remaining ones' dwindling quality has me debating whether this list is still worth sharing. ICM's bloated set of official lists now suggests there are over 17,000 essential, canonical films to see? Silly.

I so wish I was more confident about the shorts I've included...I've checked off about 6,400 shorts on ICM and now really regret not taking notes on the best ones. I just don't remember all those blips of film footage well enough.
