Actually, I don't have any favorite films from 1981.

My favorites from the years prior are Andrei Tarkovsky's STALKER (1979) and Ingmar Bergman's 1980 offering FROM THE LIFE OF THE MARIONETTES.

Had to wait until IDENTIFICATION OF A WOMAN by Michelangleo Antonioni in 1982 for my next fave.

Only 5? I tried, but I couldn't.

Raiders of the Lost Ark and Excalibur are in a class by themselves. I think Raiders might be the most fun I've ever had in a theater. After that, my favorites are:

Das Boot
Cattle Annie and Little Britches
Coup de torchon
First Monday In October
Fort Apache, the Bronx
La Guerre du feu
Possession (Zulawski)
Rollover
Southern Comfort
Thief
Zoot Suit

    My 5 favourite films from 1981, not including the obvious out-of-competition status for
    Beatty's REDS and Spielberg's RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK are :

    LE CHOIX DES ARMES
    COUP DE TORCHON
    LA FEMME D'A CÔTE
    GARDE A VUE
    UNE ETRANGE AFFAIRE


    Never seen Martin Ritt's BACK ROADS : any thoughts about it ? According to Imdb rating (5.3) this seems not to be a glorious movie by this great director...
