Film nerd filter: I'm looking for the best film lists ever assembled, with extra points to those lists that are some what more specific and obscure.

I'm wanting to put together a definitive list of film lists. I want lists that meet the following criteria:
- More specific than general. For example, AFI's 100 YEARS...100 MOVIES is of less interest to me than Empire Magazine's The 50 Greatest American Independent Movies, solely because it is less specific.
- The list's specificity can be directed at any aspect: best films from a particular country, genre, theme (e.g., ultra-violent)
- The person/group that assembled the list needs to hold some kind of clout in the world of film. I'm not interest in a personal list, unless the creator is someone special.
- The more obscure, the better.
All that said, if in doubt, throw it out there.
