The Ultimate Map: The Best Films of All Time

While the cinema has been profiled, categorized, divided, highlighted and chronicled in a variety of "best of " lists, this by far is one of the most ingenious and creative I have seen.

It lists the best films of all time on a map that looks like the New York subway. Developed by the French film site Vodkaster, films were chosen based on their popularity on the Internet Movie Datebase (IMDB) and broken down by genres and subtopics from "Dark and Weird Drama" to "Masterpiece about Show Business." So based on your interests, you can go from The Wizard of Oz, take a crosstown transfer at Stand by Me and end up at Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf.

Sounds alot more exciting than the #4 Lexington Avenue Line at rush hour. (Strangely I didn't see The Taking of Pelham 1,2,3 listed).

(For more on the map click the Vodkaster link above).

Many thanks to Tricia Lewis for locating this on Fast Company.
