1992 really wasn’t a great year in film though. A handful of semi-classics, but nothing super amazing.
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade*
Jesus of Montreal
New York Stories
Sex lies and videotape*
The Cook, the thief his wife and her lover*
*My personal favourites. Not a vintage year!

Alice (Jan Svankmajer)
Ashik Kerib (Sergej Parajanov)
Medea (Lars Von Trier)
probably there are more but it doesn’t seem like the best year :/

My 10 Favourite from 1979:
AlienApocalypse NowBeing ThereThe Black StallionThe BroodHardcoreManhattanScumStalkerWise Blood
Full Metal Jacket
The Last Emperor
Field of Dreams, I was a week old when I went to see it.
Man, 1981 was pretty amazingly mediocre. I’m sure this is mostly my fault, as the only foreign (non-English) I’ve seen is Truffaut’s The Woman Next Door :)
Chariots of Fire
My Dinner With Andre
Brooklyn Bridge (Ken Burns)
Raiders of the Lost Ark
The Great Muppet Caper
They All Laughed
Haven’t seen “Killer of Sheep” but would probably like it.
1987 doesn’t seem like such a weak year.
Hamlet Goes Business
Belly of an Architect
The Blind Owl
Under the Sun of Satan
Evil Dead II
Maybe not all undying classics, but “Yeelen” and “Doc’s Kingdom” are close. Not to mention all the incredibly ambitious films that I’m not an enormous fan of – “King Lear,” or “Zegen,” for example.
I was watching Sans Soleil yesterday and I noticed it was from the year I was born. :)
Since I’ve not seen many from my birthyear, I’ll just make a brief list of films which I look forward to seeing:
The Civil WarThe Golden BoatIl y a des Jours . . . et des LunesInnisfreeJacques Rivette, le VeilleurKorczakMetropolitanMilou en MaiMr. & Mrs. BridgeNon, ou A Vã Glória de MandarNouvelle VagueSzürkületTo Sleep with AngerVincent & TheoWhite Hunter Black Heart
“The Civil War” by whom?
The Ken Burns film.
Scubadonc, nice list.
Awesome. Just making sure. It’s been showing on Public Broadcasting here. I’m really impressed.
Why, was there another film released that year with the same title? ;)
I caught some of it on PBS several months back when they were ‘celebrating?’ the anniversary of the conflict. However, they had it on late at night and despite how good it was [I liked very much what I saw,] it was oddly enough very relaxing to go to sleep to.
:) I know, but there are so many films with the same titles. Garrison Keillor does some great voice overs for the Walt Whitman material. It was probably one of his VOs that put you to sleep.
