Film Rankings By Year 1950-1975

Here's how it works: A film's year is simply the year IMDB says it is. Not because IMDB is especially accurate, but just because it happens to be the easiest and most comprehensive resource there is for tracking film dates throughout the world and over the whole history of cinema. Occasionally IMDB will change a year as new information comes to light, when I notice such changes, I'll change the list here accordingly.

The order isn't definitive: ranking works of art is not meant to be a hierarchical activity, but rather an organizational one. It's interesting trivially and comparatively to see what movies came out at the same time, to see the progression of film history. And lists are just plain fun to argue over. They are meant to be conversation starters, not finishers. I don't have any particular criteria for what ranks above what, it's just my own subjective opinion, informed by a reasonable knowledge of film and film history, one that is expanding and deepening all the time.

The rankings change over time: when I see a new movie, I add it to the list here. Sometimes I'll see a movie again and my opinion of it will change, or my feelings about a film will evolve and so I'll move it up or down the list.  These changes are noted as they occur in "This Week in Rankings" posts, though often a single change to a year will lead to a larger shuffling.  These lists are, and always will be, a work in progress.

  1. Hey, sweet blog man! Just a question, considering your viewing numbers are so large, and also considering you have ranked 'Sans Soleil' so high, I was wondering why you havn't seen Chris Markers other very much talked about film 'La Jetee'. I'm only asking because it seems like you have great taste in film and I am seriously considering buying the Criterion that has 'Sans Soleil' and 'La Jetee', 2 in 1. It's a little pricy for a blind buy (never seen either of them), any suggestions?

  2. Hmm, I have seen La jetée, I just failed to list it. I think I'll put it at #11 for 1962.

    These are the only two Marker films I've seen, and I'd definitely recommend the Criterion disc. You can watch them both on hulu, but I don't know if they're on the free hulu or not.
