==============================================================================================

(description from Filmsite.org)

Rolling Stone Magazine (in its 1999 end of the year Millennium issue) and film critic Peter Travers offered picks for the best (or essential) movies of the last 100 years that were made by mavericks who "busted rules to follow their obsessions...in the defiant spirit of rock & roll."

Facts and Commentary About the List:

(1) Criteria for Selection:

.....(a) Each movie had to "embody that rock spirit of artful defiance," and each director was limited to only one movie.

.....(b) The biggest cash cows (e.g., Titanic, 1997), the winner of the most Oscars (e.g., Ben-Hur, 1959), or film-school standards (Battleship Potemkin, 1925) aren't included.

(2) "They're alive."

 

The films in the 100 list appeared ranked, but then were grouped into such arbitrary categories as "freaky" films, "mainstream" films, and "foreign-language" films.
