5 Films From Each Year of the Past 90 Years I Want To See

I'll admit, it's not a snappy title for the list, but it's a bit "Ronseal". I've picked 5 films from each year since 1922 that I haven't seen yet but want to see.

It's basically an extended, categorised watchlist. Not so much a "challenge" list, more of a reminder of the films that came out in that year that I'd like to see at some point.

I'm happy to take recommendations as direct replacements if you think I've missed any important ones off; provided it isn't because I've seen them before, of course.

Edit 22/3/13 - Right, I've decided I am going to make this a challenge of sorts. I think it would be highly unrealistic for me to expect…
