The Wingsart Top 100 Film List

12 Angry Men

I should start off by saying that this list is a work in progress. When I set myself the task of picking my favourite 100 films I pretty much wrote down the first that came to mind. Also, unsurprisingly, it’s a close match to my own blu ray collection. It’s an honest and unpretentious list, made up of some guilty pleasures and more ‘worthy’ titles, but are all films that I return to again and again, and wouldn’t hesitate in calling classics of their genre.

I should also add that this top 100 is in no particular order at the moment (although number 1 probably would be 12 Angry Men, followed by Close Encounters) and i’m almost always referring to originals and not remakes. I’ll add (remake) next to the title if that’s the case. Enjoy!
