WHAT GOOD IS A LIST?

As much value as there is in many an old movie, there are simply too many to view in one lifetime.  So, the classics are a good place to start. But which ones?  The dictionary defines the noun “classic” as a creation of the highest excellence.  “Classic” can also be used to refer to any period considered to be a Golden Age.  Although people confuse the term with “old”, neither word necessarily defines the other.  However, despite the overused proclamation of a recent release being an instant classic, some distance is essential for evaluation.  Generally, the accepted age of a classic film is twenty years or older.  So, if you’re at a loss when it comes to selecting a classic to watch, or have already exhausted your knowledge of the subject, the popular lists gathered here make an excellent starting point.
