great stuff, but...
6 April 2002 | by litzSee all my reviews

I thought that most of 100 Years, 100 Films was terrific. It was just the right length to keep one's attention. If you're planning on watching the entire 100 though, don't start with this because it gives away too much for a few of the pictures. And that song gets really annoying too. But its a fantastic documentary and worth a look for any film fan.
