Re: Best movie of every year since you were born?

Since this list was made almost 4 months ago, I decided to update it, as well as adding a pick for 2016.


I like your list a lot! Some films I haven't seen like The Social Network, Drive, Arrival, Birdman, and Oldboy, are all movies in looking forward to checking out.

Out of curiosity witch month were you born? I was born in July.

Re: Best movie of every year since you were born?

Hi there!

Oh yes, you should definitely see those movies. Though, seeing your profile, I've noticed you watch way more films than myself. It's rare to see someone so young so invested in films, so keep it going.

And by the way, I was born in September

Re: Best movie of every year since you were born?

Well, I guess I'm so interested because I'm a filmmaker! Or maybe aspiring filmmaker:/ I've worked on some of my friends shorts, and now I'm finally working on my own!

It's also nice to someone my age into film too! What are some of favorite directors?

Re: Best movie of every year since you were born?

Wow, that's great!!!
Maybe you could send me a link to your YouTube or Vimeo channel so I could watch your stuff and support your work.

As for my favourite directors, I haven't really had the opportunity to check the likes of Hitchcock, Godard, Fellini, Tarkovsky or Welles (you know, the classic favourites), so I guess they are amongst Paul Thomas Anderson, Christopher Nolan, Tarantino, Denis Villeneuve and Alejandro G. Iñarritu.

What are some of your favourite directors?

Re: Best movie of every year since you were born?

Well, that was a chore! My fault for living too long!

For some years it was a wrench to leave out as many as three or four films. For other years I had to pick movies that would not make my all-time top 250.

Weaker decades for me were the 1970s, 1980s and the present decade, in all of which I have picked some very good, but not outstanding, films. My favorite years are the late 1940s and the 1950s, where I have had to omit a string of masterpieces.

I am open to suggestions to strengthen certain years as my memory is not what it was.
