Here's mine. The individual lists are in no order. They're also individually one-per-director, meaning there's some filler on the 20s-50s lists, even though I do like all the films those lists contain. Lists will be edited often.

Vredens dag (Day of Wrath)
Banshun (Late Spring)
Tobacco Road

1950s

Pickpocket
Akasen chitai (Street of Shame)
Tokyo monogatari (Tokyo Story)

Jalsaghar (The Music Room)
Kokoro
Nuit et brouillard (Night and Fog)
Ordet
Un chant d'amour

1960s
Démanty noci (Diamonds of the Night)
Suna no onna (Woman in the Dunes)
Dog Star Man
Bara no soretsu (Funeral Parade of Roses)

1980s
Topio stin omichli (Landscape in the Mist)
Tsuitô no zawameki (Noisy Requiem)
Něco z Alenky (Alice)
Kárhozat (Damnation)
Dni zatmeniya (Days of Eclipse)
La ville des pirates (City of Pirates)
L'Ange
Bei qing cheng shi (A City of Sadness)
Sans soleil
Pisma myortvogo cheloveka (Dead Man's Letters)

Honorable mentions: Akarui mirai (Bright Future), Můa hč chiều thẳng đứng (The Vertical Ray of the Sun), Zhantai (Platform), INLAND EMPIRE, Werckmeister harmóniák (Werckmeister Harmonies)

Film ist. 1-12 and The Cremaster Cycle would be on here somewhere but since they are composed of a series of films, some released in the 90s, some in the 2000s, they'd have to take up two places each and then I'd have to bump one out of the 90s and the 2000s. It was hard enough getting that 90s list to ten.

Let's see yours.

Nice list. I'd have been tempted to add Eisenstein's Strike or The Passion of Joan of Arc. But another thing I noticed was most films were foreign and art-house films. Not that I have a problem with that, but the lack of any Hitchcock films draws some criticism, especially Vertigo, which is arguable the best film ever made.

Well, I think that says more about Lohengrin's personal taste more than any desire to eschew canonical films. Anyways, I find it more interesting when people don't feel obligated to include a film just for reputation's sake. My preferences would probably be more traditional and boring, though I suppose I'd have a greater orientation towards musicals and film noir (and looking at my S&S list for this new poll, I see three musicals in the top ten slots and five in the top twenty :lol: ).

My Night at Maude's (1969: Eric Rohmer) -- The Rohmer film I connected with the most. Not sure why .

Being There (1979: Hal Ashby): One of Peter Sellers best performances; Ashby did such great work in the 70s.

I'll do this in installments. And yes, I realize that 9 out of 10 of my 90's picks are American films. I simple haven't seen very many foreign films from that decade, a problem which I intend to fix in the near future. Anyway...

2000's:
City of God
Ghost World
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
The Barbarian Invasions
Elephant
Syriana
Talk to Her
Persepolis
Grizzly Man
Let the Right One In

1990's:
Trois Couleurs Trilogy
Pulp Fiction
Goodfellas
The Big Lebowski
Crumb
Short Cuts
Glengarry Glen Ross
L.A. Confidential
Eyes Wide Shut
Boogie Nights

D'oh! I knew I'd forget something.

Masterofoneinchpunch, what's up with limiting yourself to one per director for each decade?

Make it more difficult and more interesting. Like I said on the 20s it would be dominate by just a few. Plus I would rather recommend a cross-section of films (though I'm probably the only person who would recommend Drunken Master :D; actually one of the few that prefers that one to the sequel too).
