The Very Best of Roger Ebert's Great Movies List

I just completed the amazing Great Movies list. It was a terrific year-long odyssey. I saw so many wonderful films and learned about all kinds of filmmakers I'd never heard of.
That said, there were some that rose above the rest. Here are my picks for the very best - must sees - for those who don't want to watch it all. I watched it all so you don't have to!
Note: I intentionally omitted many popular movies like Star Wars because the point of this list is to point out truly great movies you may not have seen.
