I wanted to make this list as comprehensive and personal as possible. I apologize for not putting more porn, more horror, more YouTube videos. I promise nothing was chosen out of obligation or contrarianism. Taken as a whole, this list touches on every movement, every tradition, every quirk of cinema that I have found the most beautiful. All these movies make me frantic. I think that about covers it. Archival communities forever, film preservation now.
