    If you the task of picking 100 films to be saved and protected for all time , which 100 would you pick and why ? for purposes of the game let’s say that you have to have seen all the movies , for example I know Citizen Kane is a classic but I have yet to stay awake for the whole film so I can’t include it on my list.
