For what is worth ( not much) in my opinion the best list of "great " films
was produced by the BFI and published in Sight and Sound about the same time
as the ridiculous AFI list
It was an extraordinary list of 250 feature films from around the world that
were
considered "essentials" for film. However as the list was produced for
purpose
of trying to come up with a list of the most important films WITHOUT any
intention to sell tapes ( unlike AFI and some others) many of the titles on
the list are NOT available on VHS, DVD .

Perhaps at another time we can discuss how curriculum will be screwed up and
altered by being limited only to titles on Video/DVD.
