Use the menu to navigate to film lists for the 2010s, 2000s, 1990s, 1980s, 1970s, 1960s, 1950s, 1940s, 1930s, or 1920s and 1910s.

I made these lists at the request of Theo Panayides for a project of his.  The authority for year of release is the Internet Movie Database, which tries to go by the film’s first public screening; I sometimes override its decisions when I have evidence of its errors, or when the first public screening comes too long after the film’s completion.  Color coding is used to give an idea of how much I like each film, and allows comparison between films in different years. Unranked, uncolored films at the end of some years are a reminder to myself of areas to explore, and may or may not indicate honorable-mention status.
