I've tried to pick the best film for each year since the birth of cinema. The choice of films has been based importance, influence, quality and sometimes just personal preference. A couple of years around the early 1900s I've missed out, because if I haven't seen or heard of any film from that year I'd prefer to skip the year than pick a film I've not heard of at random. Some years had an obvious choice, other years needed a more difficult decision, with 2, 3 or even more films for some years. There are bound to be some disagreements, but hey-ho this is just my opinion.
All the films I rate as a perfect 10 out of 10! These are the ones I can keep watching over and over and not get tired of.
