The experts at the American Film Institute have issued a 10th anniversary edition of their 100 years...100 movies poll of the best American movies ever made. This year's list is a significant improvement. Making the cut for the first time: F.W. Murnau's Sunrise at 82. A solid showing, just a bit behind such equally accomplished masterworks as Rocky (57), American Graffiti (62), and Forrest Gump (62). Did I mention this list is better than the last one? See the list (as an animated poster gallery!) here.

    Excise Birth of a Nation and replace it (in a less dignified position) with Intolerance? It's astonishing they managed to compile a list at all with such flimsy criteria.
