It’s been a little more than five months since the last installment of our History of Film series, and in that short time Movie Mezzanine has undergone some significant changes. This includes partnerships with Letterboxd and others, accreditation on Rotten Tomatoes, and the hiring of our first Reviews Editor in Josh Spiegel. What hasn’t happened in 2014, however, is this ongoing feature. Today that’s going to change.

For those who are new to this series, History of Film is designed to examine each decade of cinema, ten films at a time (see our results from the 00s, 90s, 80s and 70s). In an attempt to present a multiplicity of voices, we’ve reached out to a plethora of people in the film industry. Thankfully, a whole host of gifted and esteemed individuals responded rather enthusiastically, happy to contemplate the cineamatic greatness that was the 1960s for a moment. So what follows is a collection of ballots from Movie Mezzanine staff and friends — from filmmakers to film critics to festival programmers to a publicist (yes, even a publicist).

Of course, the most integral part of this process  is you, the reader. Throughout the month of June we’ll be accepting ballots from anyone and everyone interested in submitting their top ten list in the comment section. Come the end of the month we’ll tally the ballots up and highlight the ten most popular films from the 1960s (as voted on by all of us). Those ten films will then each individually be written about by a writer on our staff. To see a past example of how we’ve done this, go here. We hope you enjoy.

    I’m not sure, and maybe i missed it because there are a lot of lists here, but i don’t think a single person put Yojimbo on a list. 0_o

    w/e I like Yojimbo, 8 1/2, Week End, Le Samourai, Putney Swope, Charulata, The Leopard, Branded to Kill, Signs of Life, and Blow-Up

    I also like One Two Three, Ivan’s Childhood, Through a Glass Darkly, Lawrence of Arabia, I Am Cuba, Gertrud, The Insect Woman, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, To Kill a Mockingbird, Marketa Lazarova, Cul-De-Sac, 2001, L’Amour Fou, Au Hasard Balthazar, La Jetée, Cléo from 5 to 7, The Graduate, Psycho, The Great Escape and If… about as much as the 10 i threw out earlier, but i guess movie websites and readers really like the number 10 for some reason ¯_(ツ)_/¯

  • Chuck Williamson

    Great lists… and no doubt, trying to narrow down the 60’s into a single top 10 list is a real challenge. Here’s mine (with many, many, MANY omissions):

    1. PERSONA (’66)
    2. FUNERAL PARADE OF ROSES (’69)
    3. LA JETEE (’62)
    4. HIGH & LOW (’63)
    5. THE UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG (’64)
    6. SILENCE HAS NO WINGS (’66)
    7. DAISIES (’66)
    8. FASTER, PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL! (’65)
    9. EROS + MASSACRE (’69)
    10. BLOW-UP (’66)

    Also fairly certain that 1966 was one of the best years for cinema… ever.

  • Leon Horka

    4.) Blow-Job? You mean Antonioni’s Blow-Up, WTF.

      no, he means the Andy Warhol film Blow-Job

    First off, I love three of you guys for putting Batman: The Movie on your list. :)

    I’ll work up a list soon, but first I want to know if it’s supposed to be favorites or best? I hear the original prompt was “favorite” but this post is titled “best”.

    • SamuelFragoso

      I’d rather not get into the debate between best vs. favorite, but choose what you believe should be on the list. Putting “Favorite” into the headline would look/sound silly. When everything is tallied up we’ll call the post “Our Favorite Movies of the 1960s” and so on.

  • Adam W. Hofbauer

    Love the inclusion of the Zapruder Film and the popularity of Batman 66. Here are ten that no one has mentioned yet, because decades are big.

    1. The Loves of a Blonde
    2. Jason and the Argonauts
    3. Witchcraft Through the Ages
    4. Dragon Gate Inn
    5. Flicker
    6. Salesman
    7. The Cloud Capped Star
    8. Closely Watched Trains
    9. Serene Velocity
    10. One Armed Swordsman (actually unseen by me, but it seems the movie that helped invent the kung fu genre and launch contemporary Chinese cinema should at least get a shout out, and begs the usual question about list making. Is our collective purpose to further canonize the same handful of films that we already know we love, and in some way quantify their relative values, or is it to introduce each other to films we haven’t had a chance to pursue yet? For me at least the value is the latter, and peoples’ lists here have pushed me towards eventually looking at tons of things that weren’t on my immediate radar.

    • Masterofoneinchpunch

      One-Armed Swordsman: Kung fu films had been around for quite a while before that movie (the whole Wong Fei-hung series starring Kwan Tak-hing for example) and wuxia (martial art chivalry; the term is sometimes used to designate weapons films) films like that one had been around for decades before as well. Now the combination of that film and the earlier Come Drink with Me (King Hu) certainly helped push Hong Kong cinema into newer territory for the Shaw Brothers creating a wave of wuxia films which then would lead into the kung fu films.

      Now it is a good film and certainly fun to watch. It is in my top 20 of 1960s, but not top 10.

    Here’s what I came up with for my top 10 favorites of the ’60s:

    1. 2001
    2. Once Upon a Time in the West
    3. Yojimbo
    4. Psycho
    5. The Wild Bunch
    6. Dragon Inn
    7. Underworld USA
    8. One-Armed Swordsman
    9. Night of the Living Dead
    10. True Grit

    Looking at my list, it’s a mix of old favorites I’ve loved for 15+ years, and others I’ve only just seen and become enamored with. It’s also harsh to cut it to 10. So many favorites are lurking below that cut-off; I feel bad for them! And there’s always so many movies I haven’t seen yet that might figure in if I did. Lists are always snapshots of the time they were made.
