My 100 Favourite Films of All Time (Updated)

I first made the list of My 100 Favourite Films in 2012. More than two and half years later I decided it was time to revise the entries. Both this and future revisions are dedicated to my late friend who inspired me to write the list in the first place. Each time I'm in the middle of a debate about cinema I think of her. I hope she and Roger are having knock down, drag them out fights in the afterlife.

This list heavily favours musicals, documentaries and dramas because this list fits my personal taste. If you think a worthy film is missing from the list, you would be wrong.

I'm not going to link to every film because it requires too much effort. I suggest you use IMDb search instead.
