Top 10: 1980

One of the best years in film ever. A list of eleven through twenty would be as strong as many years' top tens. Also, I realized it's the only year that my three favorite directors all released a new movie.

1. The Shining (Kubrick)
2. Raging Bull (Scorsese)
3. The Elephant Man (Lynch)
4. The Empire Strikes Back (Kershner)
5. Inferno (Argento)
6. Popeye (Altman)
7. Bad Timing (Roeg)
8. Dressed to Kill (De Palma)
9. Kagemusha (Kurosawa)
10. The Fog (Carpenter)

By your top 3 directors, do you mean Kubrick, Lynch, and Scorsese? Because 1999 also saw new films by the three of them. Altman too, for that matter.
