Rolling Stone: Greatest Films of All Time

The way I see it, and I've got the conch, the best movies of the last 100 years were made by mavericks who busted rules to follow their obsessions. We're talking about a century of cinema, but it's still rock & roll to me. I had certain criteria: Each movie had to embody that rock spirit of artful defiance. Each director had to be limited to only one movie – otherwise you could just list the collected works of Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles, John Ford, Billy Wilder and Martin Scorsese and end it. Anything dutiful I tossed. Don't look for the biggest cash cow (Titanic), the winner of the most Oscars (Ben-Hur) or film-school staples like Battleship Potemkin. The 100 maverick movies on this list have one more thing in common: They're alive.
