This is a project I’m working on, so excuse the mess. Since most of the 100 top rated films on imdb are pretty basic, I thought I’d offer my alternative list (in the spirit of Jonathan Rosenbaum’s Alternative AFI list). For every film on the list (dated 03/15/17) I offer one alternative recommendation. Each recommendation shares an element with the original imdb pick: director, writer, cinematographer, editor, actor, genre, theme, etc. If the original film is Halloween, I might recommend you see Christine. You get the idea.
