My Birthday List – 2011

The Goal: List a film released in every year since 1970.

How: I wanted the list to be random, so I sat down and listed 400 films. After the large list was completed, I then started filling in the slots. Once a year had a film assigned, all other films released that year were deleted from the list. (Films from the 80s took an unexpected turn. YIKES!) The list isn’t my list of best films or even films that I would recommend. These are just the films that came to mind.

1970 The Landlord

1971 Harold & Maude
