Nine Great Movies from Nine Decades


Richard Corliss and Richard Schickel, film critics for Time magazine, have compiled a list of nine greatest films by selecting one title from each decade, from the 1920s to the early 2000s. In chronological order, the nine films are: Metropolis from the 1920s, Dodsworth from the 1930s, Citizen Kane from the 1940s, Ikiru (生きる) from the 1950s, Persona from the 1960s, Chinatown from the 1970s, Decalogue (Dekalog) from the 1980s, Pulp Fiction from the 1990s, and Talk to Her (Hable con ella) from the 2000s.

(Decalogue is a series of ten films, so there are technically more than nine titles on the list.) Corliss and Schickel’s Nine Great Movies from Nine Decades appeared in the 30th May issue of Time (vol. 165, no. 22). Their full list of 100 titles was published online and reprinted in the Encyclopædia Britannica Almanac.
