The Matrix Reloaded stands out on your list like dog's balls on a budgie. What were some of your other contenders for that year?

The Return is my choice for 2003.

As for your list, I would call it a very eclectic, personal one, among which I see some favorites of mine (you’re also one of the few here who seem to like Fellini), but also a few I really didn’t think that much of.

I agree. 2003 was a very strong year in film. My choice is Finding Nemo followed by Oldboy.

That's a fair assessment. My taste is surely not mainstream and i always make up my own mind about stuff, never looking down or up to any mode or genre or worry about how it looks to anyone else when presenting a list.

I hope the topic inspires others to make such a list aswell though, it's not all about me 😁

My own knowledge of, and interest in pre 1950’s cinema is probably too limited to make such a comprehensive list, though I do have some pre-war favorites.
It’s not often easy to choose a favorite from a given year, either, and I usually call my own favorites, “top 5’s,” meaning that they would probably place there in any given year.
Top 50 for a decade might be interesting because it would also allow me room to draw on the breadth of what appeals to me

Really happy to see Cosmos, Attenberg and Les Lèvres Rouges on your list, they could use some love.

Le Notti Bianche as well, would you happen to know any other Italian cinematic adaptations of 19th century Russian literature? The combination has been working really well for me so far, and I'd love to see more. I've seen Un colpo di pistola (1942), which is also a favourite; and Il cappotto (1952), which I enjoyed a hell lot more than I had expected to for an adaptation of that particular Gogol short story.

Astenicheskiy sindrom stood out from the ones I haven't seen, I've seen just about every Muratova film I can get hold of this past year, but I've been avoiding this one - arguably her most well known - and I'm not even sure why.

Really happy to see Cosmos, Attenberg and Les Lèvres Rouges on your list, they could use some love.

Le Notti Bianche as well, would you happen to know any other Italian cinematic adaptations of 19th century Russian literature?
our taste do seem to converge on a lot of stuff indeed! even the somewhat "weirder" stuff. Interesting to see you've got a love/hate relationship with Zulawski, and your preference goes to one of his more trashed later features... might be the Paulo Branco influence there...?

I can't think of any Italian adaptations I've seen from the top of my head...

I don't think I've ever sorted my ratings this way before, so it's interesting to see some of the trends.
indeed! cool a few people have chimed in with their list already!!

I do this every few years or so, and it is always one of the more interesting exercises
You can spot what periods of film (usually not exactly divided by decades like in the history books) speak to you, when certain countries had a peak in excellence and so on
and personally, from which periods you might need to see more (to just boost numbers, or to find a better top movie). For instance, I think it is rather dissapointing that I can only come up with a 4 star movie for 1956 and that I've only seen 12 movies from 1938.

My version of this list. I'm still very much in the process of building my film education though, so it's up for constant revisions.

Hmm, I don't really tend to think this way - I lump everything I call a "film" together typically - and about 1/4 of my viewings are shorts and a statistically significant though much smaller number are documentaries, TV movies, miniseries, etc. And several would top their years. So it's an interesting challenge. OK - I will leave off years from which I've seen less than 5 features, and I'm not going to include 2019 'cuz I really feel behind the game this year. A lot of these are really tough years for me to name one absolute favorite so I'm sure 10-20% of these could change at any moment. Don't know how so many people seem so sure of their rankings.

Top countries (may be slightly inaccurate due to my probably forgetting some coproductions)

38 - USA
18 - France
10 - UK

* I probably like Feuillade's Fantômas more than anything else in 1913-14 but as it's split into 5 separate films in the listing, I'm not including it. Feuillade gets enough love from me as it is.

Ok, I've decided to do my best to make a list, but I will only choose the films that have had a huge influence on me at some point in my life. I'll start with

1936- Modern Times (Have loved Chaplin since my childhood, and film represents him well)

1937- Grand Illusion (Probably my favorite Renoir, who I would name the director of the decade).

1938- Bringing Up Baby (Probably my favorite of the sophisticated Hollywood comedies from this time period)

1939- Wizard of Oz (I have to pick this one if only because it was my favorite movie from early childhood)

1940- Grapes of Wrath (My favorite from Ford) or Fantasia (another childhood favorite)

1941- Citizen Kane (Far ahead of its time)

1942-1943: Nothing I've seen from these two years was highly influential (skip)*

1944- To Have and Have Not, mostly for Bogart and Bacall

1945- Children of Paradise

1946- Great Expectations (Another Pre-teen favorite, and still the most memorable film from '46, despite several worthy contenders)

1947- Skip*

1948- Treasure of Sierra Madre (John Huston was one of my favorite pre-teen directors and this one edges out several others I like a lot.

1949- The Third Man

1950- Los Olvidados (My first from Bunuel seen for the first time when I was in high school, nudges out a few others I like a lot

1951- Skip*

1952- High Noon (my favorite Western from the early days) or Singing in the Rain (my favorite musical from this time period)

1953- Ugetsu (holds off two by Bergman that I love)

1954- Seven Samurai's visuals nip On The Waterfront (Pre-teen favorite involving 2 of my favorites principles of the time: Brando and Kazan)

1955- Smiles on a Summer Night

1956- A Man Escaped (my first Bresson made a big impression)

1957- The Cranes Are Flying

1958- Touch of Evil

1959- Hiroshima Mon Amor (while Bergman or Kurosawa were tops in the 50's for me, this was my favorite film)

1960- L'Aventura or La Dolce Vita (both giants of Italian cinema)

1961- Last Year at Marienbad

1962- Jules & Jim

1963- 8 1/2

1964- Dr. Strangelove

1965- Saragossa Manuscript

1966- Andrei Rublev

1967- Marketa Lazarova

1968- 2001 Space Odyssey or Yellow Submarine

1969- The Passion of Anna (Something by Bergman would be in my top 5 very often)

1970- Days & Nights in the Forest

1971- McCabe & Mrs. Miller

1972- Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoise or Solaris

1973- Undecided** (Amarcord, O' Lucky Man, Spirit of the Beehive, Don't Look Now, Papillon)

Great to see a Tamil film here. Very raw and brutal film. This film was heavily edited in theatrical version, which I saw and was quite disappointed wit hteh censorship. Hope you have seen an uncut and unmuted version.

Very raw and very brutal indeed. I don't think I've seen a censored version... I saw it at a Tamil film special at the IFFR in 2018. The website of the IFFR says they showed a 125' version
https://iffr.com/en/2018/films/i-am-god
I thought the screening might actually have been a bit longer... If this had been released in any other country this movie would have been a cult phenomenon and not so completely under the radar like it is now (in my country at least, and I don't see it mentioned online much... or at all actually)

I just have to say that I don't like this thread. But only because it's made me obsessive enough that I've decided I have to have a ranked list of favorites for each year. :circle:

Same here. It's already taking me two days to pick one fav of each year and I'm still not done. It's also very annoying to exclude amazing movie, because there's something even better from that year, but put something far less on your list in another year. I even had to exclude my all time #4, because my all time #1 is from the same year. :(

My list is coming up this evening...... I think.

I used to keep a list like this, but I stopped updating it because some years were really difficult to choose (having to make a list without Bruno Dumont or Blake Edwards, for example, was difficult). I'll try again, but I'll skip the 1910s due to the low number of films I've seen from that decade (even though After Death, one of my 'desert island' films, will have to be left out):

2016 - The Lost City of Z
2017 - Twin Peaks
2018 - First Man
2019 - Vitalina Varela


It's a pretty uninteresting list, mainly because it's filled with the kind of movies these lists are always filled with, but all of these touched me deeply, and I can still vividly remember when, where, how and with whom I watched every one of them, and how I felt afterwards. It's also really nice to look at this list and see the clear influence that my mother's tastes (Chaplin, Almodóvar, Allen) and my father's (Fellini, Visconti) had on my own, just like my tastes (Costa, Kiarostami) failed to influence theirs :lol:

My list would start at 1969 which ironically enough is the year I was born.

The Whispering Chorus (1918) seems like an interesting tip!
I'll try to delve into the early cinema teens a bit more next year, and it's on my list now

One thing that this exercise has made clear to me is that the period from the mid 50’s to mid 70’s really stands out in its richness, but not too far behind is the period from the mid 90’s until the early 2010’s, though there appears to be some drop off this decade.

I have some ideas about this, but wonder what others think. As to the richness of this more recent period, I think it is due to the expansion of cinema as a true “worldwide medium, and to the growth of independent film.
As to the fall off, I am less sure, though I believe it may have something to do with the development of other mixed-media, more interactive art forms, and a change in the marketplace, which is changing again with the growth of online production companies.
The question remains as to whether this will produce a new surge in creative cinema or not?
To put it another way, is it a dying art form, or one that is transforming into something else, and if the latter is true, what forms will that take?
