    Which decade would you consider to be the best decade in film? I personally think that the 60’s were the best decade in film, but it is very hard to narrow it down to one decade.

    90’s had Truman Show, pulp fiction, shawshank, saving private Ryan, goodfellas, silence of the lambs, Schindlers, Terminator 3, the matrix, Jurassic park,titanic, the big Lebowski, Lion King, Fargo, toy story, good will hunting, Beauty and the beast, and way more so the prize has to got to the 90’s. The 70’s is a close second and the 80s is right behind.

    The 70s were incredible too. As well as the 20s

    1939 was by far the greatest year in cinema history. That could give the 30s an edge.

    40s is hell of a decade! Citizen Kane, Treasures of Sierra Madre, The Grapes of Wrath,The Great Dictator, Bambi and To be or not to be. Hollywood produced some of the best films during the war.

    I’d vote for the 1950s. So many classics from all around the world that have stood the test of time.

    A Place in the Sun
    Rear Window
    North By Northwest
    Singin’ in the Rain
    Seven Samurai
    Vertigo
    Rashomon
    The Seventh Seal
    All About Eve
    Some Like It Hot
    La Strada
    The 400 Blows
    From Here To Eternity
    On the Waterfront
    An American in Paris

    I don’t mean to sound polemic (or maybe this time I do) but are you guys aware of the fact that American cinema is not the only option (nor necessarily the best one)?
    My vote would go to the 1960s: Antonioni delivered his trilogy (L’Avventura, La Notte and L’Eclisse), Fellini delivered La Dolce Vita an 8½, Godard delivered too many masterpieces to write, Tarkovskj delivered Andrej Rublev and Bergman delivered, just to mention one, Persona.

    Close call between the ‘40s and the ‘70s. I went with the latter, by a hair.
