150 Favorite Movies (Now Expanding Back to 200+)

My favorite films ever, ranked by preference and enjoyment and their significance to my life.
Highly subjective list. Don't be mad it's nothing personal, oh wait...
Also, the list only consists of feature-length films, now including documentaries.
Proud this list has so much diversity-- in language, genre, runtime, etc.
Some popular directors here are Hayao Miyazaki, Akira Kurosawa, Wes Anderson, Paul Thomas Anderson, Martin Scorsese, Stanley Kubrick, Francis Ford Coppola, Sion Sono, Charlie Chaplin, Andrei Tarkovsky, and Ingmar Bergman.
Could change day-to-day really.
It's really hard to list things and I wish I wouldn't rank these films but hey, I guess we're all obsessed with ranking stuff.
