Out Of Time

Time Magazine's film critics recently came up with a list of the All Time 100 Movies ever made. I give them props for not numbering them but listing them alphabetically. As expected, such an undertaking will have a bunch of movie snobs aghast at oversights. Myself included. There's the usual suspects (no, not the movie) of Citizen Kane, The Godfather, Raging Bull and Lawrence of Arabia. Some surprise choices: Chungking Express (Wong Kar-Wai's visual masterpiece), City of God and The Fly. Also, there were some downright bizarre choices: Finding Nemo. Come on, Toy Story was far more revolutionary. Woody Allen gets the nod for The Purple Rose of Cairo (and not Annie Hall) which was a real stinker. The list gets even more questionable with Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon whilst 2001:A Space Odyssey and A Clockwork Orange not even mentioned. Don't even get me started on the blatant omission of Terrence Malick....

I also noticed that due to George Lucas's bumbling "Star Wars TRilogy" has been replaced by just "Star Wars".
