Next up in Paste Magazine’s “100 Best/Greatest” series: The 1950s! I blurbed my ass off for this list, and I’d do it again in a heartbeat (which is to say that I am literally doing it again right now, for a different list focused on a different subject. As Hexxus once said: No breaks!).
Anywho – the 1950s were, and still are, a pretty great decade of cinema, and to honor the sheer mastery and variety of film made in the era, I wrote about movies by Federico Fellini (La Strada), Akira Kurosawa (Seven Samurai), Yasujiro Ozu (Tokyo Story), Satyajit Ray (Pather Panchali), Ingmar Bergman (Wild Strawberries), Vittorio De Sica (Umberto D.), Jacques Tati (Mon Oncle), Alfred Hitchcock (Strangers on a Train), Joseph L. Mankiewicz (All About Eve), and many, many others; it’s a long, varied list, and being as it took Herculean effort to get the thing published, I must insist that you click here to visit Paste Magazine and read the article.
