Distilling Down Hollywood's History in 10 Films

Publish date:

In a delightful article, The Telegraph's movie critic Robbie Cullin tries to distill the roughly 100 years of Hollywood into ten films.

He writes, "Critics talk about the film industry’s progress in terms of how one picture or director led to the next, because it’s logical, and because people love narratives...For me, the 10 films below make a pretty good fist of it. They’re all from Hollywood, although most of them represent a response to cinema from elsewhere: Britain, France, Italy and further afield."

His 10 film choices are:

One Week (1920), Buster Keaton
It Happened One Night (1934), Frank Capra
Stagecoach (1939), John Ford
Out of the Past (1947), Jacques Tourneur
An American in Paris (1951), Vincente Minnelli
Point Blank (1967), John Boorman
The Conversation (1974), Francis Ford Coppola
Back to the Future (1985), Robert Zemeckis
Pulp Fiction (1994), Quentin Tarantino
The Dark Knight (2008), Christopher Nolan
