100 films....

* That the classifications of films has the problem not only reflect considerations and personal taste, but political interests. In the Cold War the media and film sectors in the world decided to impose the dogma that Battleship Potemkin was the best movie ever. It was, of course, an allegation dyed and completely absurd ideology. Tantamount to saying that nothing had been done in films after 1925 was so extraordinary.

Afterwards, the critics decided to take a leap of 16 years, only that he did in the eighties. And stated that the best of all was Citizen Kane, Orson Welles's work. A carefully calibrated choice: the film was inspired by the Hearst Magnate of the American press. A blow against capitalism.

Let for almost seventy years later, and now it has made another choice: The Godfather. This (from 1973) has at least one advantage: it has no intention at first sight ideological predecessors, but remains as controversial as they are. And of course, to paint a gangster in American society, criticism is allowed no less deliberate.

But it is progress. At least here are taken into account other factors for selection.
