    (”49th Parallel” is briefly mentioned in this.)

    Made at the request of Dan Owen ... despite the title, it includes films Powell directed without Pressburger. There is a huge drop-off here between 9 and 10 ... the first 9 all made my Top 10s for their respective years; the other three don't come close.

    1. The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp
    2. The Red Shoes
    3. The Tales of Hoffmann
    4. A Canterbury Tale
    5. The Thief of Bagdad
    6. Peeping Tom
    7. Black Narcissus
    8. 49th Parallel
    9. I Know Where I'm Going!
    10. A Matter of Life and Death

    ...plus 2 more. View the full list on Letterboxd.

Want even more consensus?

Skip Rotten Tomatoes, they’re biased SJWs too afraid to criticize things like the Ghost Busters reboot. Avoid giving them ad revenue by using the minimalist alternative, Cinesift, for a quick aggregate:
