Best films of 1951

I like the bookends: sexy-creepy Robert Walker and sexy-cloddish Farley Granger, sexy-creepy Maj-Britt Nilsson, both films in creamy black and white.

1. Strangers on a Train (Alfred Hitchcock)
2. Diary of a Country Priest (Robert Bresson)
3. Early Summer (Yasujiro Ozu)
4. A Streetcar Named Desire (Elia Kazan)
5. The River (Jean Renoir)
6. The Idiot (Akira Kurosawa)
7. Tales of Hoffman (Michael Powell)
8. The African Queen (John Huston)
9. The Lavender Hill Mob (Charles Crichton)
10. Summer Interlude (Ingmar Bergman)

  1. There are a bunch on that list I have not seen and really want to ! So many great directors on that list. A Streetcar Named Desire is just perfection in my mind, a master class.
