Ben Garvey’s 100 Greatest Movies of all Time 1

It’s been about two years since I updated my list, so I decided to redo it.? Some of the movies have shifted around and I added some new ones (The Departed, Wall-E, Zodiac, The Aviator, and Inland Empire).? A few good movies got bumped from the top 100 (The Royal Tannenbaums, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Magnolia, Clerks, LA Confidential, and Tommy Boy), but room had to be made!? The only movement at the top was swapping positions for Vertigo and Chinatown.? Here’s the new list!
