The Guardian's list of the 100 most memorable moments in movie history is possibly the best movie list I've ever seen. The most glaring omission, aside from the absence of anything from Citizen Kane, is the hotel room scene in Vertigo. Still, this is close to a perfect list, and gets extra points for giving plenty of love to The Third Man.

My own favorite moments range from the cut to the sunrise in Lawrence of Arabia (which, with apologies to 2001, is the greatest cut in the history of cinema) to Kevin Spacey's valediction in L.A. Confidential (which thankfully makes the Guardian's list). In the end, though, my favorite movie moment has got to be this one.
