Hi everyone! Lots happening lately in the Top Ten By Year Project:

  • The 2 zines I made, for 1943 and 1969, are in permanent stock over at my etsy site Femina Ridens. Please go check it out and pick one (or both!) of them up.
  • I’m pretty much done with the 1949 watchlist so you can look forward to 2 other posts besides this one going up in the next month. They are What I’ll Remember About the Films of 1949: A Love Letter & the Top Ten By Year: 1949 write-up.
  • Next, I’ll be taking on 1990. My watchlist is the biggest one to date. I doubt I’ll end up watching everything, but I’m excited to post it next month so keep a look out for that too!
  • I’ll also be starting on a new zine, this one on 1978 (which was done several years ago for this project; I’ll be revisiting, revising, and reinterpreting everything I did for that year into a new booklet)

For my What I’ll Remember posts, I always include some favorite shots & images from the films of whatever year I’m doing. However, I’ve only ever done one of these 100 Images posts before (for 1930). It felt time to make this an official part of the Top Ten By Year project.

Many of these screengrabs are mine, some are not. This isn’t comprehensive. Some films aren’t represented here at all, and it’s not because there was nothing standout in them. But from what I was able to capture on my own, as well as what was available on various websites, this is a pretty decent overview of my favorite images. And there are a lot of great images I saved but chose not to use here. Many of these mean more with context, some are purely for aesthetics, most are a combination of both. For the most part, there is some rhyme or reason for the order in which they are presented.

(I have a few more films to watch so I may or may not be adding a few to this post over the next week)

So go check out the previous one of these (1930 is not the static wasteland you’ve been led to believe, not by a longshot), and please enjoy this one!
