I'd love suggestions, if anyone has some, to add to the years where I have less than ten movies. Keep in mind I'm only picking movies I haven't already seen (with some exceptions, like The Red Shoes, which it's been so long since I've seen that I really want to re-watch it). The only other rule I had was one film max per director per year (which I have only broken once, in 1939, but I mean...c'mon) and that I wanted to include every Best Picture winner that I have yet to see.
I dig this. I've embarked on something similar here
, so a fair number of your selection from the 1920s are films I've either watched recently or considered watching. Recommandations, if you haven't already seen them:1921The Phantom Carriage
(Top 100)19263 Bad Men1927The LodgerWest Point
(by no means essential, but maybe a nice change-of-pace from all the canonical titles)1928The Docks of New YorkEasy Virtue
(though I seem to be the only person who really like this Hitchcock silent)The Wind
(I don't like it quite as much as some, but it's still pretty essential)The Fall of the House of Usher1930Earth1931Marius
(Top 100)À Nous la Liberté
(I much preferred this Clair film to Under the Roofs of Paris
, though both are good)Kameradschaft1936César
(the third film in the trilogy that starts with MariusMy Man Godfrey1937Captains CourageousHistory Is Made at NightThe Awful Truth1938The Dawn Patrol
And, as someone as said, these polls
can be quite helpful.edit:
Just a heads up: I'll be moving this thread to the Marathons board shortly.
