beeb lists


When updating my last post I accidentally found another interesting page over at BBC, this time listing the greatest american movies ever. More accordance here, out of a hundred only the following eight has never been in any of the 1001 book editions:

37. Imitation of life (Sirks, 1959)
53. Grey gardens (Maysles/Hovde/Meyer, 1975)
58. The shop around the corner (Lubitsch, 1940)
63. Love streams (Cassavetes, 1984)
72. The Shanghai gesture (von Sternberg, 1941)
87. Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind (Gondry, 2004)
94. 25th hour (Lee, 2002)
98. Heaven’s gate (Cimino, 1980)

I’ve only seen one of the above, so I don’t have any opinions about their worthiness. At least half of them are fairly famous, though.
