the ASC (American Society of Cinematographers) is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. As part of the festivities, they're honoring the best photographed movies of the 20th century. They did the top 10 in order, then 90-100 unranked, listed in order of release.

Here's the top 10:

1. Lawrence of Arabia
2. Blade Runner
3. Apocalyse Now
4. Citizen Kane
5. Godfather
6. Raging Bull
7. The Conformist
8. Days of Heaven
9. 2001
10. The French Connection

the only one I haven't seen (and must confess, can't even recall hearing of) is Conformist. All the others are great movies, although I always thought that the only thing great about Days of Heaven was the cinematography (like waving fields of grain? that's your baby!) Take away Conformist and Heaven and I'm sure I've seen the other 8 an average of at least a half-dozen times, so watchable are they.
