Because I'm such an artsy snob, genre films rarely make my top 5, let alone the #1 spot. But Star Wars (it will always be plain "Star Wars" to me. "A New Hope" was added three years later.) is such a perfect, super-exhilarating adventure movie that I couldn't deny it the honor.

1. Star Wars (Lucas)

2. Sorcerer (Friedkin)

3. Close Encounters of the Third Kind (Spielberg)

4. Annie Hall (Allen)

5. The American Friend (Wenders)

6. The Man Who Loved Women (Truffaut)

7. Valentino (Russell)

8. The Ascent (Shepitko)

9. The Late Show (Benton)

10. Equus (Lumet)

also good: 3 Women, The Report, Rollercoaster, The Devil Probably, The Serpent's Egg, Islands in the Stream, The Spy Who Loved Me, The Turning Point, The Goodbye Girl, Semi-Tough, Cross of Iron, Jabberwocky, That Obscure Object of Desire, Fraternity Row, New York New York, Suspiria, Audrey Rose.

still need to see: Man on the Roof, Black Sunday, The Perfumed Nightmare, Peppermint Soda, The Getting of Wisdom, Padre Padrone, The World's Greatest Lover.

Saw a hell of a lot of movies I detested in 1977. Off the top of my head, I only remember liking:

SUSPIRIA
ROLLERCOASTER
TELEFON
SINBAD AND THE EYE OF THE TIGER

    My 5 favourite films of 1977, not including the obvious out-of-competition status for
    Goretta's LA DENTELLIERE are :

    ANNIE HALL
    CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND
    THE DUELLISTS
    L'IMPRECATEUR
    THE RESCUERS

    There sure were a lot of crappy movies in 1977.

    And yet they're infinitely more fun and memorable than the majority of the shit that comes out nowadays.

    Angelillo, is LA DENTELLIERE the one known as "The Lacemaker" in English? That's one I've been intrigued with.
