    1) Sunrise (the only masterpiece to ever win best picture)

    2) How Green Was My Valley (great film, but about Ford’s 20th best film)

    3) Casablanca (just about perfect film)

    4) Unforgiven

    5) The Godfather

    6) Lawrence of Arabia

    7) Titanic

    8) The French Connection

    9) It Happened One Night

    A handful of others are decent, most are, always have been, always will  be middlebrow mediocrities, including probably this year

    1. All ABout Eve
    2. Annie Hall
    3. The Silence of the Lambs
    4. Casablanca
    5. No Country For Old Men
    6. On the Waterfront
    7. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
    8. Sunrise
    9. The Deer Hunter
    10. The Apartment

    …Last 4 spots can come and go.  Top 6 is pretty solid.  I can say there is one thing about ON THE WATERFRONT that I don’t like, Bernstein’s score.  Other than that it’s a perfect film.

    Well here’s an interesting distraction. Thanks awardskel.

    Hmmm….looking over the winners, I find that I hate most of them.  Or, not a huge fan. So, I’ll go with my emotional choices.

    All Quiet on the Western Front
    On the Waterfront
    The Lord of the Rings, RK
    The Last Emperor
    Dances with Wolves: these are my friends. Sue me. And do it now.
    Forrest Gump
    Titanic
    The King’s Speech: Immense gratitude
    Annie Hall
    Lawrence of Arabia

    Wow is that ten? I’d trade off The Apartment, The Godfather, and The Deer Hunter for most of the above. Sunrise’s cinematography and overall craft is a remarkable feat, but I hate that misogynistic screenplay and it will never make any top ten list of mine.

    Whoa. So glad I copied this before I hit “Post Reply”.

    I could more easily come up with 10 “worst” BP winners than 10 “best” BP winners.
