Seems like this is missing from the list (and Jaws).
Jaws is a masterpiece and a milestone in the history of film. But it has not been canonized, and I think what they try to present here is an "ideal cinematheque", which means stuffy, academic, and a little bit boring. A good cinematheque will mix and match. First time I saw Deep Throat was at a cinematheque. A good cinematheque will explore, not trot out the pantheon directors time and again.
