They Shoot Pictures, Don't They? (TSPDT) is a modest but growing film resource dedicated to the art of motion picture filmmaking and most specifically to that one particular individual calling the shots from behind the camera - the film director.

This list is based on TSPDT's 1,000 Greatest Films, a list compilated by Bill Georgaris using thousands of best-of/all-time lists.

“I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.”
       ― Umberto Eco, Foucault's Pendulum (2007)

What makes our lives worth living? Does free will exist? Is morality just a convenient charade? What is the nature of the human condition? Is God dead, as Friedrich Nietzsche said, or is He just really good at playing Hide & Seek?

The following films ask the "big questions", or are generally concerned with how to live one's life, believing that philosophical and psychological inquiry can help.
