FILM: tectac's Top 50 Favorite Films of All Time

As the resident and clearly most learned cinephile on Sputnik (self-appraised), I feel it is at least partly my duty to shed some light on a handful of the most masterful films ever created. Was going to impose a "one film per director" rule but decided not to. Please understand this is not remotely an attempt at objectivity, either; these are just personal favorites, and not necessarily films I would consider the "best" in any definable metric (though in many cases I might). Let's discuss films. Drop some titles below and I'll tell you if I've seen 'em or not and what I thought. (And you can do the same.) Tons of masterpieces I had to cut off the list, maybe I will drop some Honorable Mentions below, too. Albums are inconsequential.
