Metacritic's 50 Best Movies of All Time
We turned to the review aggregator Metacritic for its list of the all-time greatest movies, which ranks films by their composite critical reception. The list excludes rereleases and films with less than seven total reviews on the site, so numerous classics like "The Godfather" and "Citizen Kane" are absent for lack of data, and the data skews toward contemporary movies. But it's an odd, fascinating assortment all the same.
