There is indeed a lot to admire in 1948, which makes me quite curious as to why you love THE NAKED CITY so much, a film I find to be capably made, but significantly less than a masterpiece. And when you've got THE RED SHOES or THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRE MADRE...
THE NAKED CITY certainly ain't as ambitious as THE RED SHOES or Olivier's HAMLET, and truth be told it was a toss up between those three, but I think THE NAKED CITY is perfect for what it is, and I think it draws the line between drama and procedure perfectly. I found it incredibily thrilling

Have you seen Young Mr. Lincoln? That's another Ford film that really sticks with me. And Mary of Scotland, although I choose to look at that as a parody of an MGM film.

And The Prisoner of Shark Island. And The Informer. It's a pretty amazing catalogue, and I haven't even seen half of it.
None of the above. I still have a lot of Ford I need to see, and I'm looking forward to digging in.

I don't understand this thread.

Are you only watching one film per year or are you picking the best movie made for each year?

That.

If we only watched one film per year, we'd all go crazy.

Speaking of things that time forgot, it's nice to see ESCAPE FROM ALCATRAZ on your list.

I never see or hear that film being referenced.

A film a year is a daft and limiting format, but nevertheless Alcatraz seems a more solid film with every passing year.

These days it would be crippled with compromises - are the characters likeable, what is their journey, do they get to fuck Santa?

I like seeing some of these old threads revived. Looks like I never posted a list on this one. I wouldn't even know where to begin... Give me some time.

Nice topic Ambler.

I will do this one decade at a time though, working backwards.

So here goes.

2014 - Edge of Tomorrow (just about beats out "The Homesman", though both are ultimately imperfect features)
2013 - Snowpiercer
2012 - Compliance
2011 - Young Adult
2010 - The American
2009 - The Red Riding trilogy
2008 - Appaloosa
2007 - The Lookout
2006 - The Prestige
2005 - The Proposition (honorary mentions for "The Descent" "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang" and "The Ice Harvest")
2004 - Der Untergang
2003 - Bad Santa
2002 - The Bourne Identity
2001 - Le Pacte des Loups
2000 - Memento

Looking at that list, it's safe to say that the 21st century hasn't been all that great. For some years I had trouble finding even one feature worth mentioning. Interesting exercise nonetheless.

Will try to update this regularly with another decade.

Yes, it's been in a fallow period, though looking at your list I can see several films I like but forgot, such as Downfall and The Proposition. Also a few I haven’t seen that sound interesting: Snowpiercer, Appaloosa and Compliance, for instance. For me, 2006 was the most difficult year to complete: the only films I can recall liking were The Black Dahlia and Idiocracy, and both are badly flawed.

Lists can be telling, though. Mine demonstrates a liking for black humour, tough guy thrillers and westerns, political faction, dark romance, science fiction and gothic horror, which I suppose is pretty accurate. I need to pay more attention to the pre-Second World War period now; I'll post a 1930s list at some point.

My list, with the 90s added:

2014 - Edge of Tomorrow (just about beats out "The Homesman", though both are ultimately imperfect features)
2013 - Snowpiercer
2012 - Compliance
2011 - Young Adult
2010 - The American
2009 - The Red Riding trilogy
2008 - Appaloosa
2007 - The Lookout
2006 - The Prestige
2005 - The Proposition (honorary mentions for "The Descent" "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang" and "The Ice Harvest")
2004 - Der Untergang
2003 - Bad Santa
2002 - The Bourne Identity
2001 - Le Pacte des Loups
2000 - Memento


1999 Go! (this was not a great year, exemplified by the fact that I seriously considered “Galaxy Quest”)
1998 Ronin
1997 Starship Troopers
1996 Fargo
1995 Heat
1994 Léon
1993 Tombstone
1992 Basic Instinct (honorable mentions for “The Last of the Mohicans” and “Sneakers”)
1991 JFK - This might honestly be the hardest year so far. I admire JFK more than I truly enjoy it. Other than that, the only features I would deem worthy of a mere mention are "The Rocketeer" (an homage to adventure serials that embraced its campy goofiness), "The Last Boyscout" (this tend to be the first movie Shane Black haters point to when they claim he is a misogynist) and perhaps "Little Man Tate" (one of the few times in Foster's career that she revealed something of herself in a project).
1990 Goodfellas

I suspect that's the two weakest decades (and a half) out of the way.

Missing 1991. Interested to see we have no films in common for the 90s though I rate Basic Instinct, Tombstone, Troopers and Heat. Ronin is an interesting choice: apart from the car chase it didn't seem one of Frankenheimer's better films though it had an excellent cast.
