Jimmy’s Greatest Films of all Time!

Before we get started:

This list is not meant to be a definitive list but rather a list of films that i have personally seen and found truly brilliant. there may be many, many films not included on this list that are worthy of the title but unless I’ve seen them and personally loved them they will not be on this list. if you have any films you recommend that should be on this list E-mail them to me and I’ll do my best to watch them and let you know if i think they belong on the list and why or why not. Also, I have not ranked the films in any order as i believe that many films work on different levels for different reasons so saying on is better than another would be virtually impossible. The films are therefore listed by year of release. At some point i’ll add justifications for each movie but for now just enjoy.

2001
