The National Society of Film Critics' 100 Essential Films (USA)

From the book, The A List: The National Society of Film Critics' 100 Essential Films, edited by Jay Carr. I can't recommend the book highly enough.
Oh, and they cheated a little by including some pairs and trios of movies as one item on the list, so there are really 107 movies here—BONUS!
