I mean, the Matrix is not even listed,
This is supposed to be a list of good films, not big money making ones.
Actually, Matrix wasn't eligible anyway, as it was made after 1996.
From the AFI site on the list and how the films were selected:
"AFI's 100 Years...100 Movies is an 18-month celebration that began last November when AFI invited more than 1,500 leaders from across the American film community - screenwriters, directors, actors, producers, cinematographers, editors, executives, film historians and critics, among them - to choose from a list of 400 nominated films compiled by AFI and select the 100 greatest American movies. The nominated films were all made in the first 100 years of American cinema (1896-1996). Movies produced after 1996 were not included. "
