If you want to ignite a seething debate on Twitter just publish a list. Last week the #Fav7Films hashtag took film Twitter by storm, and now a new list of the 100 Greatest Films of the 21st Century has catapulted another heated conversation into the spotlight.

There’s a difference between saying something is your favorite and saying it’s the best, the latter of which requites taking a somewhat more objective (though opinion is undeniably subjective) approach. To figure out what was truly the greatest of the greatest of cinema since the year 2000, BBC Culture collected ballots from 177 critics from across the world. What resulted is a pretty phenomenal list. (But hey, I guess am a little biased because five of the top 25 would make my personal top 10 list.)

David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive leads at number one with a top 10 that includes Boyhood, There Will Be Blood, and The Tree of Life. Here are the top 25 films:

25. ​Memento (Christopher Nolan, 2000)
24. The Master (Paul Thomas Anderson, 2012)
23. Caché (Michael Haneke, 2005)
22. Lost in Translation (Sofia Coppola, 2003)
21. The Grand Budapest Hotel (Wes Anderson, 2014)
20. Synecdoche, New York (Charlie Kaufman, 2008)
19. Mad Max: Fury Road (George Miller, 2015)
18. The White Ribbon (Michael Haneke, 2009)
17. Pan’s Labyrinth (Guillermo Del Toro, 2006)
16. Holy Motors (Leos Carax, 2012)
15. 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days (Cristian Mungiu, 2007)
14. The Act of Killing (Joshua Oppenheimer, 2012)
13. Children of Men (Alfonso Cuarón, 2006)
12. Zodiac (David Fincher, 2007)
11. Inside Llewyn Davis (Joel and Ethan Coen, 2013)
10. No Country for Old Men (Joel and Ethan Coen, 2007)
9. A Separation (Asghar Farhadi, 2011)
8. Yi Yi: A One and a Two (Edward Yang, 2000)
7. The Tree of Life (Terrence Malick, 2011)
6. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (Michel Gondry, 2004)
5. Boyhood (Richard Linklater, 2014)
4. Spirited Away (Hayao Miyazaki, 2001)
3. There Will Be Blood (Paul Thomas Anderson, 2007)
2. In the Mood for Love (Wong Kar-wai, 2000)
1. Mulholland Drive (David Lynch, 2001)

You may agree with some of those. You may light your computer on fire and toss it out the window in protest. Or maybe you look at the list as an opportunity to reconsider films you maybe wouldn’t have ranked yourself, which is always refreshing. I bet there’s even a few titles on the top 100 you probably haven’t seen, so what a wonderful opportunity this is to broaden your Films To Watch list. See, lists aren’t all that bad.

ScreenCrush’s own Matt Singer contributed to the list (see all 177 critic ballots here) and wrote about why Boyhood deserved to be ranked at no. 5. “This 21st Century masterpiece took most of the 21st Century to make,” he wrote, which pretty much says it all. Check out his contribution as well as the 24 other critics who wrote about the top quarter of the best films from the past 17 years over at BBC. And then make your own list and Tweet it and keep this fiery debate churning!
