Local cinephiles who punish themselves for not watching enough good cinema may want to check out the "1,000 Greatest Films" list over at the They Shoot Pictures, Don't They site. That's what the online film community has been doing for the past week or so.
Colleagues of mine have spent precious time compiling how many of these films they've seen. And some of them (like my boy Matt) don't know whether to beat themselves up or congratuate themselves for having a life outside moviegoing.
I know I haven't seen every movie, so I'm not even thinking about counting off all the previously-viewed movies on this list. I'm content in the fact that, as a man in his early 30s, I have a lot more films to see in my lifetime.
But the list is there if you want to take the plunge. Good luck and try not to curse yourself out for not seeing the complete canon of Ford or Bunuel. They're just movies, playa!
