A lot of this seems to be determined by what genre people consider a film rather than the quality of a film. I'm sure Vertigo is going to end up being one of the best movies on the list according to most people, but it didn't get more votes because a lot of people probably don't think of it as a "crime" film.
Definitely. Didn't vote for The Sting and On the Waterfront as well, despite I like them overall better than some others on my list.
Not just a no-brainer for this list but insanely influential - so many movies take something from it, American Gangster, The Dark Knight and a lot more because it looked like an instant classic in '95..........
Like every list it has it ups and downs, but this is overall a very, very good one. Cause while some films are too high (Goodfellas, Taxi Driver, Fargo, Silence of Lambs) and some too low (Untouchables, L.A. Confidential) there is hardly a film on this list I dislike (maybe with the exception of City of God and Jackie Brown, which are borderline).
