1001 Movies to See Before You Die

I have the first edition of 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die. It's an immense book packed with great movies that anyone interested in cinema should take a look at and start hacking away at the movies on that list. Although more editions have been printed to incorporate more recent films, the first edition was published in 2003 and includes only two films from that year. By my latest count I've seen 467 of those films. So I've got some work to do.

Here is a list of films in the first edition that I have reviewed:
