Not Another List

When The Comics Journal assembled their list of 100 best comics of the century in 1999, their staff had the good sense to parenthetically add "English-Language" to the list's description. This poll of 187 critics for the 50 greatest films is similar in it's provincialism. The choices are both conventional and lean heavily Anglo-American, especially its top ten. Like any "Best of" list that targets works of art or entertainment, it's a reflection of the biases of the people involved and the context in which it was created.
