Scotty M: Only four movies on your list actually won Best Picture. The Dark Knight wasn't even nominated.

@Captain:

> Five posts and no one has mentioned Citizen Kane

This is just a guess, mind you, but I have a sneaking feeling that the reason that no one has mentioned _Citizen Kane_ is that it didn't win the Academy Award for Best Picture (it was nominated, but lost to _How Green Was My Valley_).

Muppets may correct me if I'm wrong, but since the title of the thread is BEST OF THE BEST PICTURES, I was sure he meant the list should be composed of films which won the Oscar for Best Picture of the Year.

Five posts and no one has mentioned Citizen Kane. There's hope for humanity yet.
