600 Movies Every Cinephile Should Watch...

Here's the list for you who will never complete the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die and haven't heard of a single Asian director except for Akira Kurosawa, Yasujirô Ozu, Masaki Kobayashi, Hiroshi Teshigahara, Kaneto Shindô, Kar-Wai Wong, Joon-ho Bong, Edward Yang, Kim Ki-duk, Kenji Mizoguchi, Park Chan-wook .... okay whatever bad example you probably don't know one of them: 600 Movies Every Cinephile Should Watch...

Sorted A-Z because no film is ranked over another.

I'm always open to suggestions. I'll probably add the recommended film if I find another mediocre, mainstream movie from this century I watched a year ago and gave 4/5.
