Late 2015 was when I decided to deeply explore the medium, so I'm kinda still a film noobie (saw over 100 films last year, though lol). With that being said, my list is subject to change since I'm still checking out a ton of movies.

1. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
2. It's Such A Beautiful Day
3. Chungking Express
4. Chinatown
5. The Big Lebowski
6. Paris, Texas
7. Spirited Away
8. Before Sunrise
9. City Lights
10. Creed

Persona is a piece of cinema mastery. I love watching it someone who hasn't seen it before and then talking about "what they thought" of what happened etc.

There are so many Bergman films that could fill up a top 25 for me.

At the risk of sounding super pretentious, reading a bit of Andre Bazin opens up this movie in ways I was completely oblivious to the first time around. Saw this early last year, liked it but wasn't crazy about it. Read a bunch of Bazin over the year - especially Ontology of the Photographic Image - and it just blew the doors wide open on the film. This is definitely a mind buster.

And, yeah, Bergman is a master.

Nothing pretentious at all about it, it helps us appreciate cinema even more. I am going to sit with my Criterion booklet next time I watch it. I have seen it enough times now that I don't need to read every line. I'll have to do some Bazin reading as well, fresh perspectives are always welcome in my world.
