BBC lists the 100 greatest films of the 21st century so far

Feast your eyes. Saw this on GD and thought it deserved a look. I gotta say, it's not the worst list I've ever seen. Ignoring the fact that Moulin Rouge and three (THREE) Christopher Nolan movies made the cut, it could have been a lot worse. The Grand Budapest Hotel, Before Sunset, Brooklyn, Inside Out, Lost in Translation, Children of Men, and The Social Network all would appear on my list as well. Glad to see Boyhood is still appreciated as much as it deserves to be. I don't know if I'd put Mulholland Drive at #1, but it's certainly a good film. And hey, no Lord of the Rings! A little faith restored.

What do you guys think?

Holy Motors would be on my worst of the 21st century list.

I have Amazon Instant Prime and that movie is on there.  Caught a good ass chunk of it today.  Like... all the way to the Tesseract scene.

It might have surpassed Memento as my favorite Nolan movie. It has the big ideas Nolan tries to explore with his other films, but here they're actually supported by well-written characters and solid performances.

I'm surprised Fury Road got as high a spot as it did, and at AI landing a spot in the list considering how divisive it seems to be. Nice to see Spirited Away and Amour get the recognition they deserve, as well as Inside Llewyn Davis.

I still don't really get the Fury Road love to be honest. Same thing could be said for Spirited Away though I guess so maybe this just isn't the list for me.

Kinda disappointed that none of Laika's films made the cut.

Or Mary and Max for that matter.

Tree of Life and No Country for Old Men are monstrously overrated as usual. (Though it's kinda cool the latter was directly behind an Iranian film.) Meanwhile, the lack of 127 Hours and In Bruges is inexcusable. However, good to see Secret in Their Eyes and Ratatouille on there.

After the comments earlier in this thread and your subsequent "disagree" ratings, I really had my fingers crossed for a thermodynamics rant.

I didn't do it, because, as your post attests, it would have been instantly predictable, obvious, and lacked the intended impact. You know, kind of like the 10-minute docking scene in that movie.

Come on, Neville. You know the question we all really want answered... is the blight thriving?

Nice to see Mulholland Drive in the #1 spot, definitely need to give it a rewatch. Great filmaking right there. Also nice to see The Grand Budapest Hotel so high on that list, along with Children of Men , Eternal Sunshine, and City of God (especially this one).
Some of the other choices that I haven't seen but have an intent on doing so are Synecdoche, New York; The Great Beauty (have the DVD, don't have the will power to sit through it yet), Leviathan, and Timbuktu. Heard great things about the ones I mentioned.
However, good to see Secret in Their Eyes and Ratatouille on there.
Neville, <3.
We need to launch a campaign to make sure that more people see Secret in Their Eyes, and Ratatouille is monstrously underrated, don't get why it doesn't get the recognition it deserves.

Lol, No Country being so high was one of the few things I really liked about this list.

I agree that Mary and Max was snubbed. That said I need to rewatch most of Laika's work before I respond to that portion of your statement.
