As a confessed list junkie, one of my regular web haunts is They Shoot Pictures, Don't They?, which collects all kinds of movie lists and, using some kind of complex mathematical formula, sorts them into an all-time, weighted, ranked consensus of the 1,000 greatest films. The list is available in a google document, which visitors can sort by year, director, country, title or even running time. Each year, after collecting the new batch of ten best lists, the big list is updated, and the results are in. Most of the movies were top contenders on many recent "best of the decade" lists, but where some of the others came from we can only guess.
