120 Movies Over 12 Months

I have lots of massive holes in my film knowledge, from really big classics to cult classics to some films that have changed something about cinema began some cultural conversation. Anyway, I decided to come up with a list that plugged some of those huge gaps and to deliberately go after films I've always wanted to watch. 

I came up with 120 of those films and will try to watch 10 every month starting from August. I'll update this page as I watch them!
