The 100 best movies of all time

The 100 best movies of all time

What makes a great movie? We could try to come up with some rubric for determining if a film deserves to be considered one of the best ever. But the truth is that it’s all subjective, and one person’s Citizen Kane is another’s Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, or vice versa. (Hey, it’s possible.) Everybody’s personal canon is different. It’s by individual taste, experiences and that intangible feeling that comes when a piece of art embeds itself in your heart. In other words, you know an all-time classic when you see it.One thing to consider, though? Rewatchability. The best movies truly do age like wine, and even the oldest films on this list will seem as fresh watched today as the day they first premiered. That’s why repertory cinemas play such a crucial role in film appreciation – seeing a movie on the big screen, decades or even a century after its initial release, is a significant means of differentiating the greatest from the merely great. And so, once you finish perusing our selection of the greatest films ever made, consider seeking them out at one of the world’s legendary cinemas, whether it’s the New Beverly in Los Angeles, Le Champo in Paris or Prince Charles Cinema in central London. You won’t regret it. Recommended: 🔥 The best films of 2024 (so far)🏆 The 100 greatest horror films ever made📺 The 100 greatest ever TV shows you need to binge🤣 The best comedy movies of all time

The 100 best movies of all time

Everyone has their favorites – that’s why any debate over what makes the best movies of all time can take hours (or, in our cases, a lifetime). Can there ever be one list to rule them all? A canon, as critics like to call it, updated with today’s game changers, that would glance upon all tastes, all genres, all countries, all eras, balancing impact with importance, brains with heart? The challenge was daunting. We just couldn't resist. Our list includes some of the most recognized action, feminist and foreign films. Please let us know how wrong we got it.
