Greetings, Glancers! We continue my new series of posts which will detail my favourite films of every year since 1950. Why 1950? Why 10? Why anything? Check out my original post here. As with most of these lists the numbering doesn’t really matter much, though in most cases the Number 1 will be my clear favourite. As I know there are plenty of Stats Nerds out there, I’ll add in some bonus crap at the bottom but the main purpose of these posts is to keep things short. So!
Wake In Fright narrowly misses out, but on another day I’d take it over any of the 10-8 entries.
10: Vanishing Point (USA)
9: McCabe And Mrs Miller (USA)
8: Walkabout (UK/OZ)
7: Straw Dogs (US/UK)
6: The French Connection (USA)
5: Get Carter (UK)
4: Dirty Harry (USA)
3: Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory (USA)
2: The Big Boss (HK/Thailand)
1: A Clockwork Orange (USA/UK)
How Many Of My Films Were In The Top 10 Grossing Of The Year: Three
How Many Of My Films Were Nominated For the Best Picture Oscar: Two (Including the winner)
Don’t forget, my favourite films of 1972 will be coming on Thursday!
