Top 100 Films: #81-#90

Let the countdown of my Top 100 Films continue, and better yet, keep the conversation going in response to the films, the write-ups, and the reading recommendations! I'm partial to my entry on film #90, Abbas Kiarostami's Close-Up, because my favorite essay out there was written by a friend and co-worker. Gratifying to spread the word!

#89: Mary Poppins (after, you know, a three-year delay)
#90: Close-Up

Top 100 Films, or Reasons To Be Thankful

I've been adding to my revised Top 100 Films list again, offering 100 words apiece about each of the entries. To give the list some added value, each entry also contains some suggestions about where interested readers might find a scholarly or film-critical response that's well worth your time.

The first ten listings in the new format have promised a place to leave comments, and though some early conversation began in this ribbon-cutting entry, you're welcome to revive the conversation here. If you've got feelings to share about Annie Hall, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Joyless Street, Letter from an Unknown Woman, Flesh, When Harry Met Sally..., In the Year of the Pig, Nostalghia, 2001: A Space Odyssey, or Riddles of the Sphinx, have at it!
