What a marvellous decade! A platinum age of Japanese cinema, lots of Hollywood classics, and major new faces either making their names or debuts: Ray, Bergman, Resnais, Truffaut (yes the French New Wave), Chahine in Africa, Bunuel’s comeback, and er…Fellini. My 2 Hitchcock favourites but for me the decade belonged to Mizoguchi.
See Apursansar’s lists for different decades. He knows his stuff.
