List of 101 Films I Can't Believe I Haven't Seen

This was a fascinating list to come up with. The rationale was films I can't believe I haven't seen. To narrow it down to 101 was a bit of a challenge, but I decided on a group that included classics, films that 'everyone' has seen, things that are always on 'best of' lists, actors I love, directors I love, or look so odd I have to see them, some are Canadian and a fair few, are films I already OWN.

Seen: 100/100 (1 I'd already seen) - Complete! See reflections on the experience here.
