Sight & Sound Challenge: The Wizard of Oz (1939)

Film: The Wizard of Oz (77/250) 
Critics Poll: 144th 
Directors Poll: 322nd 
First Time/Rewatch: Rewatch

What can I say about this film that I haven't already said? I posted a list of my 10 favorite Wizard of Oz moments a few years ago, and it all holds true. The unforgettable songs, those iconic characters, this film is absolutely untouchable. And I never fail to get goosebumps when Dorothy opens the door to a new Technicolor world...I can only imagine the impact when audiences saw that for the first time. A national treasure in every sense, and I can't wait to show my future kids.
