AND CUT: So I've picked the top 10 movies of
2000, 1990, 1980, 1970, 1960, 1950, 1940, and 1930. And...that's it.

What -- did you think I was going to carry this on til I'd reeled off the best magic lantern shows of 1780? You have to stop these things somewhere, and 1930 is a perfectly cromulent place to cease. For the record, my favorite film of 1920 is Robert Wiene's The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, and my favorite film of 1910 is Emile Cohl's The Automatic Moving Company. But I haven't seen enough good movies from either year to produce a proper top 10 list. We'll pick this up again in December, when it's time to run through the best pictures of 2001.
