If you need to see these 102 movies to be movie-literate, I’ve still got a ways to go.

Actually, looking back on it, it seems kind of weird what I’ve seen and what I haven’t. I’m missing some foreign-language films, but otherwise it’s just a scattering of movies across the past 100 years that you’d think I would have seen by now.
