Chicago Tribune 100 Best Films of the Century

Ostensibly this is a list of the best 100 films of the century, selected by Michael Wilmington for the Chicago Tribune. Actually, as he apparently suffers greatly from the listmaker's malady of counting trilogies, tetralogies, decologies etc. as single films, it's a list of 128.
