Welcome to Total Film's 100 Greatest Movies! To compile this list we trawled through our back catalogue of issues - 13 years worth - and picked out all of our 5-star reviews in search of our top 100 films.
In those 13 years, 160-some films were regarded worthy of a 5-star review, and after some cutting, whittling and massaging (Talladega Nights anyone?), we've culled that original shortlist down to the one hundred five-star reviews we think represent the 100 Greatest Movies.
If a film isn't on the list, it may mean that we haven't reviewed it in our tenure, or that for some reason we only gave it a 4-star review.
For films that came out before 1997, we've relied on the DVD review, for films post-1997 that have both cinema and DVD reviews, we've used the original cinema review (hence no Hidden - criminally given only 4-stars on release).
And lastly, this list is not a count-down, it's alphabetical - we're not playing favourites here.
So sit back, and scroll and click your way through our 100 Greatest Movies, and no doubt leave us a comment about something not being included...
