Sure, you love the movies. But how much do you really know about the ones that really made a difference? Whether it's Birth of a Nation, the brilliant silent film that fanned the flames of racism; Easy Rider, the clarion call for a generation; or Inglourious Basterds, Tarantino's bloody take on art as propaganda, Filmology gives you the most entertaining crash course in good film ever produced—one movie a day.

This is not just another greatest-movies celebration. Pairing cinema's lesser-seen gems alongside blockbusters, great early works from the pioneers of film alongside often-overlooked films from great directors, noted film critic Chris Barsanti unveils the movies that you must see—for your viewing pleasure.

Filmology: So you can watch your way to an education in film!
