Definitely an interesting list. And Barry Lyndon is quite great. My favourite is still The Shining though.

Notorious is easily Hitchcock best. It should be on more people's lists.

I'm very interested in seeing your Top 100.

I like The Birds but it might be more nostalgia than anything else. The Birds was my first Hitchcock. I thknk I was 8 the first time i saw it and birds freaked me out for a week afterwards.

So am I.  I have a current 100, but some of the films (like Bridge on the River Kwai) I haven't seen in over 15 years. My resolution in 2010 is to watch my current Top 100 in its ascending order, all the while keeping an eye out for films I forgot to include.  I expect by this time next year I'll have a Top 100 I can be happy with.

Just post what you have now with that caveat.  I think at least half of us aren't happy with ours in that given more time we'd have turned in more "definitive" lists.

I'm too anal to throw up something I know isn't completely accurate.  Plus, throwing up a half-baked list will only hinder my determination.

I'm fairly certain I'm remaking my top 100 at the end of the year to factor in all the new stuff I've seen.
