Instead of just posting bulk lists (as I have very lazily done in the past), I have decided to make these lists with a little more pizzazz. My top 10 movies of each year 1950-present begins now with, you guessed it, 1950:
One of Kurosawa's earlier works, and the film released only months prior to his breakthrough with Rashomon, Scandal is not one of his better efforts, but still a solid film with strong performances.
Slightly earlier in the year than my last "best of...so far" list, but not early enough. There have been some good movies this year, and plenty of bad, as it to be expected. So far, these are the 10 I feel stand out above the rest -- even if just slightly.
