Metacritic's Must-See Movies of All-Time (Metascore: 81+/100)

All of Metacritic's Must-See* movies, in ranked order, as they appear on the Metacritic website (almost**). Use list view of you want to see each film's Metascore.
.
When new films enter their list, I will update this (weekly) but let me know in the comments if you notice anything I've missed. Meanwhile, enjoy!

*Metacritic awards Must-See status when a film achieves a Metascore of 81 or higher and has been reviewed by a minimum of 15 reputable publications. The latter part of that explanation sometimes means certain flicks on their list (little known/seen foreign films, for example) don't qualify for the 'Must-See' badge but seen as they still have an impressive 81+ Metascore and I'm not a horrible meanie, I've included them, in spite of the list title.
