the whole idea of choosing only one film per decade is a little ridiculous
that being said, i'm going to try it:
10s: A Burning Hot Summer/Mysteries of Lisbon
00s: Miami Vice/Eloge de l'amour
90s: Histoire(s) du cinema/New Rose Hotel
80s: The Moderns/A nos amours\
70s: From the Clouds to the Resistance/La cicatrice interieure/Out 1/Duelle
60s: Scattered Clouds/Playtime/Gertrud
50s: The Tiger of Eschnapur/The Lusty Men/Bitter Victory/Journey to Italy/French Cancan/Vertigo/Bonjour tristesse/too many to list (this is true for everything on this list)
fuck it, this is too hard
>10s: A Burning Hot Summer
>00s: Miami Vice/
WHAT. LE. FUUUUUUUUUUUUCK??
damn forgot hatari. probably forgot a lot of other films as well.
i don't see a problem here.
the 90s have a lot of good/great films, you just have to look beyond
Miami Vice is verhooevenesque in it's approach to violence via a 80s drug on war propaganda piece
>fuck the 90s
Fucking millennials with their wrong generation shit
One a decade is just absurd. Film peaked, and covered the biggest ground in the 60's, whereas the 90's and 00's hardly feel like they've anything worth mentioning in the same breath as the masterpieces of the 60's and 70's.
Just not a good system.
can't pick what i haven't seen, i know i should watch puppetmaster but i havent gotten around to it
if i really had to choose something from the 90s it'd probably be something by miyazaki to give animation some representation
10s: Blackhat / Film Socialisme
00s: Miami Vice / Pulse / Mary / Yi Yi
90s: The Age of Innocence / Die Hard: With a Vengeance / Je vous salue Sarajevo
80s: Landscape Suicide / Manhunter / Passion
70s: Othon / A Woman Under the Influence
60s: Contempt / L'Eclisse / Playtime
50s: Journey to Italy / India: Matri Bhumi / Johnny Guitar / Tokyo Story
are you talking about the film or the show?
because verhoeven compared to the film isn't really at all alike, but i could see a comparison between the show and some of verhoeven's films (especially showgirls and robocop).

yeah, tokyo story is fantastic
late spring and many other ozu's are better tho
showgirls is so good, i was tempted to put it in the 90s section but it felt a bit too
i need to keep exploring rossellini too, i've only seen those 2 but they were instant all-timers.
imo, viaggio is best roberto, but india, the taking of power by louis xiv, age of the medici, and il messia come close. i still need to finish up some bits of his filmography, so who knows how many more masterpieces he has.
ozu has only ever really clicked with me three times: autumn afternoon, tokyo twilight and late spring. but i'll concede that he's a master regardless.
kind of wanted to put showgirls in as well, because it is for sure the best, but w/e. there's always another list at another time.

>2000s - Inglourious Basterds (Tarantino, 2009)
This is the last film I ever walked out on. So tedious. So empty. It ended my being a Tarantino fan.
I think I just barely missed the big ending everyone talked about and I don't mind at all.
also, rivette love it
"Starship Troopers (Paul Verhoeven, 1997): I’ve seen it twice and I like it a lot, but I prefer Showgirls (1995), one of the great American films of the last few years. It’s Verhoeven’s best American film and his most personal. In Starship Troopers, he uses various effects to help everything go down smoothly, but he’s totally exposed in Showgirls. It’s the American film that’s closest to his Dutch work. It has great sincerity, and the script is very honest, guileless. It’s so obvious that it was written by Verhoeven himself rather than Mr. Eszterhas, who is nothing. And that actress is amazing! Like every Verhoeven film, it’s very unpleasant: it’s about surviving in a world populated by assholes, and that’s his philosophy. Of all the recent American films that were set in Las Vegas, Showgirls was the only one that was real – take my word for it.I who have never set foot in the place!" --Jacques Rivette

1920s: doesn't matter. everything since the 1920s has been re-done and done better.
I'm no Tarantino apologist, but you clearly missed the point of his best film to date.
Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown have nothing on Inglourious Basterds, the ballsiest Hollywood funded satire since Starship Troopers.

>Dallas Buyers Club
You mean that completely forgettable Oscar bait McConaughey vehicle? There is nothing really great about. It's just an exercise in bringing every terrible development in European art house over to the the States.
I don't like Tarantino, but it's probably one of his better films. I liked it until I saw To Be or Not to Be.
>The Texas Chain Saw Massacre
Best of the decade? Come on now, get real.
The Rules of the Game is better.
It seems like you just need to watch more films.

Yojimbo is the better film, and it is also from the 60s.
1910s - Birth of a Nation
1920s - The Kid
1930s - "M"
1940s- The only acceptable answer is Citizen Kane or Casablanca.
1950s- Seven Samurais
1960s- Dr. Strangelove (it's inherently more watchable than 2001 and more relevant to it's decade).
1970s- Godfather Part II
1980s- Blue Velvet
1990s- Reservoir Dogs
2000s- No Country for Old Men
2010s- Too soon call. Inside LLewyn Davis is very strong contender.

1940s - Bicycle Thieves
1930s - The Rules of the Game
1920s - All Quiet on the Western Front
yes, but none were better than No Country for Old Men.
It's No Country fo Old Men or Gladiator. You could make a case for "Oh Brother Where Art Thou?", too.
However No Country for Old Men has a very post 1990s action feel where it's very character driven which a lot more films that came after are.
Pretty much impossible to narrow down, but I'll give it a go.
2000s: Pan's Labyrinth
1990s: The Double Life of Veronique
1980s: Paris, Texas
1970s: The Spirit of the Beehive
1960s: The Face of Another
1950s: Roman Holiday
1940s: Late Spring
1930s: The Testament of Dr. Mabuse
These are just my favorites
