20. Repo Man (1984). One of the earliest and best alt-culture touchstones, starring a perfectly cast Emilio Estevez as a blinkered L.A. punk surrounded by brainless parents, generic food, terrible bands and, it turns out, space aliens. Its final, all-encapsulating line: "Whoa."

Our critic's top movies of all time countdown

Nope. Nor did I include "Gone With the Wind," anything by Martin Scorsese or a single French New Wave landmark in my list of the top 20 movies of all time.
