From The Web: Supercut of 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die

If you’re not familiar with the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die book, I really recommend it for movie lovers.  The book itself (in any of its many updated versions) is an interesting overview of some of the greatest movies of all time.  It, like all movie review and criticism, is not definitive due to the opinions involved in building the list, BUT it is still a fascinating look over the history of film. For those who maybe aren’t interested in the book, but are still interested in the movies, the list itself can be found on many websites.  If you’re interested, I have found that the lists and updates on Wikia are the easiest to sort through.

Several of my friends and I are working on watching as many of the films on the list as possible… before we die I guess…  Between all of us we range from seeing anywhere from 150 to a little over 400 of the movies.  That’s a pretty good dent, but still a ways to go.

Filmmaker Jonathan Keogh apparently has at least watched a little bit of all of them.  He spent a year of his life cutting together this awesome compilation of all of the movies on the list, plus a few selections of his own. It’s going to take me several viewings to catch all the intricacies of this 10 and a half minute film, but even on the surface it is amazingly clever and really well done.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did and maybe are inspired to expand your movie watching comfort zone.

*BEFORE YOU HIT PLAY*Be aware that there are many films on the 1001 list that are rated R for violence, language, horror, etc., which all are included in this mash up.   If you’re not OK with this, you may want to skip and/or watch with caution.  I didn’t notice any nudity, but there’s a lot going on here so I may have missed it.
