Too many to choose from

< Too many to choose from

Indeed yes. How can movies from different time periods be made comparable ? A difficult question, just as: "Who was the best chess player of all times ?" This question can be asked but never answered, because those who are expected to answer are of different ages and of different historical viewpoints. I think the best films are those which were made not too far away from the time of action. A good movie must fit into its time period. I do not like films on wars that were made sixty years after the event. And I hate today's American movie stars acting as Stauffenberg or as a good corporal in the Vietnam war. Ridiculous ! Therefore I think one of the best movies seen in its relevance to its time is 'The Third Man.'
Made in 1949 it showed how people really lived and what circumstances they were influenced by, not how they are to be seen from today. It is a beautiful black-and-white movie with a wonderful cither tune, that I think should belong to the 'Hall of Fame' of movie heritage. It is worth being watched again to feel the mysteries of the post war period, which we otherwise judge only from our today's point of view.

Truly Madly Deeply

Truly Madly Deeply - though not as well known as others, is a wonderful British movie (ft Alan Rickman) that can be watched over and over again.

I would also add ALL versions of Little Women!

nothing. it's irrelevant.

I think the whole post is pretty ridiculous considering it is all subjective, but then you said this, "A good movie must fit into its time period."
