A post-1960 list that includes not a single East European film is dubious. Nothing from Poland, which produced Polanski's "Knife in the Water" or Wajda's "Man of Marble"? What happened to Kieslowski's "Decalogue" or "Three Colors" (either "Blue," "White" or "Red")? For me, "Red" belongs on top of such a list. And no Russian films? How about "Come and See"?


There is only one choice – 8 1/2.

But, Pan's Labyrinth and Amelie?????????? There are literally DOZENS and DOZENS of better nominees. Make that Dozens OF Dozens……

"The Bicycle Thief" is on the pre-1960 list.
