Top Fives by Year
Inspired by Devon's Five in a Row list (letterboxd.com/dtb/list/five-in-a-row/), but with my own top five per year across each row. These are subject to change at any time, as I both watch new films and reevaluate ones I've seen before.
I'm really weak in the '80s, I'm just gonna let you know. '70s too, to some degree, though I've been working on that lately. But those decades I don't always have a lot to choose from for these lists, because I simply haven't seen too many, so the picks may be somewhat suspect. For now. Meanwhile, in the '20s, there are a couple of years where I haven't even seen five films, let alone five good films, so to keep the rows even I used a few "dummy" films. You'll know them when you see them. :)
