What’s that, you say? A list? Honestly, I kinda wish we’d been able to keep this sucker to 40 for synchronicity’s sake, but the 40s were a fertile period in cinema all over the world, in particular Japan, Italy, and America, so we had to bump the number out by 10. There are worse things.
Anyways: I wrote about a bunch of great flicks, like The Third Man, and Sullivan’s Travels, and Late Spring, plus a few more than that, and that’s only scratching the surface of the decade (and thus the list). It’s up on the pages (so to speak) of Paste Magazine, so go and get lost in our feature writing.
