I am well aware that my wife has never even seen a good number of films that I’d call classics. But it was brought to my attention a few months ago that my film viewing history is not as robust as it could be.

Then, a la this guy’s post, I will publish the list and watch them during the 365 days immediately following the final lists’ publication.

Let’s get started
