Recommended Films from 1930 - Present

[This is a list of the top films I have seen by the year that they were released. This list is limited by many things. 1) I live in Lexington, KY, not a mecca for film festivals or a major center for world cinema releases in the theater. Thus, these lists are kind of like fine wines or cheese, as they age, they become more complex. As I am able to access a broader range of films when they are released on DVD the range of my cinematic experiences/knowledge will deepen, but no doubt I will still be limited by the politics of US dvd distribution, but I am addressing that by seeking out DVDs from other regions. 2) My personal experiences, perspective, aesthetics, politics and background no doubt influence what are on the lists. 3) These lists will change over time as I change and also as I revisit older films.] Please, feel free to offer suggestions and critiques. I believe fully in the power of dialogic interaction.]
