The Top 💯

It took more than a year to get this feeling like I could fill it with 100 films that belonged there, gets relatively whatever after 35 or so

Sunrise & Paris, Texas are tied for #1

Decided to finally bump this is list up to a top 125 on Jan 24 and a top 150 on Apr 30th 2019 and a top 200 on July 1st 2020
...and then back down to a top 100 on Nov 10 2021
