This seems like it could be useful, pick a movie or two; give a good reason why you think people should consider it/see it before submitting their list and hopefully we'll help each other out in (re)discovering some gems and make this years list the best yet!
I'll get it started:
In A Lonely Place (1950)
Dir: Nicholas Ray
One of the biggest complains about last years list was the lack of movies from before 1980 and this is one of my all time favourites. It's not too far from the list, having came in in at #151 last year and hopefully with a bit of a push, plus some votes from the people who've seen it for the first time this year (myself included!) it can break the big list.
It features a great love story, probably Bogie's best performance, fantastic dialogue and wonderful chemistry between the leads. Not to mention the great direction, and utterly brilliant ending.
So, see it and put it on your list!
