Best Films I’ve Seen Each Year

This list, which shall be very fluid, is in no way beholden to the Academy Awards, beginning with the beginning of film history and not based at all on nominations, etc. Some make it on by default simply because I haven’t yet seen anything better from that year. A few years I was unable to decide a winner (1927, 1929, 2007), and other years were difficult, often leading me to drop favorite films in favor of whatever seemed weightier of the finalists (hence the absence of favorite directors of mine including Altman, Argento, Bava, Dante, Herzog, Lynch, Paizs, Raimi, Russell, and Scorsese). I included my ratings. Those with ratings lower than 10 are particularly precarious as I continue to view more films. I suspect there will be the greatest fluctuation before 1920 and after 2000.
