SILENCE AND THE SILENTS: I've listed my favorite films of
2003, 1993, 1983, 1973, 1963, 1953, 1943, and 1933. And now...

Now we bring the series to an end. For the record, my favorite film of 1923 is the Harold Lloyd vehicle Safety Last! and my favorite film of 1913 is the Louis Feuillade serial Fantômas—or, at least, the first three installments of it. (I've got nothing against the other two chapters, indeed I like them better, but they didn't come out until 1914. Fitting serials into years can be tricky.) I don't know enough other good films from 1923 to fill a top 10 list, and in 1913 I doubt I could even fill a top five list, so I'm going to stop the sequence here. In December we'll start over with the best of 2004.
