Hey, he's got ten different films for the 80s...plus, I'd say they work best together.

I don't see why not- in each case they're part of one single opus. As Incandenza says, Dekalog is actually ten separate one hour films, but adding up to a single work.

I'm dubious about the Godfather, too. One of the things I like most about the original (in contrast to its sequel) is how perfect the narrative arc is. Consequently I tend to watch 1 and 2 as completely separate films.

They were from a single source, though.

I love Potger's list. From Nazi propaganda to Mary Poppins to Bill & Ted in one go. Brilliant.

Tony Curran's nomination of Angels With Dirty Faces (a film title I cannot say without lapsing into a parody of a Jimmy Dorsey accent) reminds me to finally buy the DVD of that film. the extras include a "Night At The Movies", with a newsreel, trailers, cartoon short etc as the cinema audience in 1936 (or whenever) would have experienced it.

There are a few other DVDs offering a similar feature, White Heat is one, and the other I saw is one of the early 30s gangster movies (Littled Caesar or something). I know the double DVD of the Flynn version of Robin Hood has A Night At The Movies feature, too. But I've not seen it at the shops here.

I'm working my way through the classic films and great directors so I wanted to start a thread like this but I see it's already been done. My thoughts despite not seeing nearly as many as I should have

20s: Battleship Potemkin
30s: Mr. Smith Goes To Washington
40s: The Bicycle Thief(s)
50s: 12 Angry Men
60s: Au Hasard Balthasar
70s: Godfather
80s: Das Boot
90s: Schindler's List
00s: Pan's Labyrinth

Best decade: 1940s

1920s The Kid
1930s King Kong
1940s Casablanca
1950s Rear Window
1960s To Kill a Mockingbird
1970s Star Wars
1980s Platoon
1990s The Shawshank Redemption
2000s Infernal Affair

As i was doing this list i realised how great the 1940s were for films - films released in the decade include Citizen Kane, Its a Wonderful Life, The Treasure of Sierra Madre, The Third Man, Double Indemnity, The Maltese falcon - the list of greats goes on and on. The only other decade that i found comparable was the 1990s with the likes of Pulp Fiction, Das Boot, The Indiana Trilogy.
