As with Rosenbaum’s list, this is a personal alternative top 100 American films to contrast with the AFI’s. This isn’t intended to be a statement as the best American films or most significant but a mix of films which I feel are neglected or otherwise underappreciated. I know most won’t agree with some or even many of the inclusions, which is why I want to emphasize this is a personal list and that everyone is free to create their own [or for any nation for that matter] should they feel like it.
The list is alphabetical and no films will be included under, roughly, thirty minutes.
