bout de souffle (1960) - Jean Luc Godard
Le Samoura (1967) - Jean-Pierre Melville
Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes (1972) - Werner Herzog
The Godfather (1972) - Francis Ford Coppola

Once Upon a Time in America (1984) - Sergio Leone

Only 10? Scary to make this decision, but here goes..... in chronological order also and with the one per director rule.

Sunrise (1927) - F.W. Murnau
Vredens dag (1943) - Carl Theodor Dreyer
Journal d'un cur de campagne (1951) - Robert Bresson
Tokyo monogatari (1953) - Yasujiro Ozu
Vivre sa vie (1962) - Jean-Luc Godard
Professione: reporter (1975) - Michelangelo Antonioni
Stalker (1979) - Andrei Tarkovsky
Sans soleil (1983) - Chris Marker
Paris, Texas (1984) - Wim Wenders
La Belle noiseuse (1991) - Jacques Rivette

It's really hard to have much confidence in this list because it's so small and because i was unsure of leaving about 15 more out. Cassavetes was the hardest director to leave out.

I'm not contritubing mine just yet, because it's been set in stone for so long, I'm bored with it. I just think it's funny that both of you had Diary of a Country Priest (it's what we call it in the US), and both of you had a different year from when it was officially released, which was 1950. My list however is shockingly American, as in 9/10 are in English. I tell you what I will do however, when I finish my overly long project of catalouging, I'll contribute top ten lists for each year from about 1927 on up, those would seem much more interesting. I mean we have plenty of debate over everyone's 2005 and 2004 lists, so imagine how much debate we could get in over out ten best lists from 1967, 1941, or 1975? International release dates would apply.

If you can come up with a comprehensive top 10 list for every year from 1927 then you really need to get out more. By comprehensive, i mean having seen at least 30 or 40 films that don't make the top 10 list.

Also, who cares when the Bresson film was "officially" released? (i went by IMDB) In the scheme of the world, does it matter? Of course not!

I love your list, even though I've seen only a few films on it.
