Favorite 50 Films of All Time

As I have been doing for the past two years, on my birthday, I post my favorite films of all time, not what I consider to be the best, but what films I enjoy the most. I cut it down this year to 50, instead of 100, as I think this shows better what I really, really like in terms of cinema, to what really represents my taste in films.
