Was going through some files and just came across the 1982 Sight & Sound list (the one for the year of my birth), broken down by critic--here are the titles chosen by Raymond Durgnat, who had one of the most idiosyncratic lists (as one would expect):
The Big Night (Joseph Losey, 1951)
Blonde Venus (Josef von Sternberg, 1932)
Chinese Checkers (Stephen Dwoskin, 1964)
Dom (Walerian Borowczyk and Jan Lenica, 1958)
Fellini-Satyricon (Federico Fellini, 1969)
The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T (Roy Rowland, 1953)
Le Mystère Koumiko (Chris Marker, 1965)
Ruby Gentry (King Vidor, 1952)
Vampyr (Carl Theodor Dreyer, 1932)
Yellow Submarine (George Dunning, 1968)
"How painful to pass over true friends like Renoir and Franju, Groucho and Kong, who saw me through from infancy to early middle age. Whatever this list suggests, my soul remains a 30s baby's, born of poetic realism and the magic realms around it--of, let's say, Next of Kin and Les Enfants du Paradis, of Hellzapoppin' and Senza pietà ..."
Of the above list, I've only seen the Sternberg, Fellini, and Dreyer (and some of Yellow Submarine) ... better get crackin'.
