Why Not 30?

Jim Emerson’s got a thread calling for Top 30 “favortiest” films over at his Scanners blog. Since, of course, I am constitutionally incapable of resisting lists, I figured I’d add mine to the pile:

1. Seven Samurai
2. Chungking Express
3. Casablanca
4. The Rules Of The Game
5. Touch Of Evil
6. Manhattan
7. Singin’ In The Rain
8. The Searchers
9. Pierrot Le Fou
10. The Big Lebowski
11. Millennium Mambo
12. Dr. Strangelove
13. Do The Right Thing
14. The Empire Strikes Back
15. Three Colors: Blue
16. Miller’s Crossing
17. A Woman Is A Woman
18. Once Upon A Time In The West
19. Playtime
20. 8 1/2
21. Au hasard Balthazar
22. Sunrise
23. House Of Flying Daggers
24. The New World
25. The Third Man
26. North By Northwest
27. Ugetsu
28. Hard-Boiled
29. Duck Soup
30. Black Narcissus

Like all such movie lists, this is totally subjective, largely random and can change from moment to moment. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t fun, which is the whole point.
