The 2000 Most Important Films Of All Time I An Infograph
If you live long enough, you get to appreciate culture’s patterns. You see that Menudo is really NSYNC is really One Direction. Eventually, society just craves an old flavor and it’s mixed anew. No place is this more true than with film. The History of Film is the latest archival infographic from HistoryShots. It’s a meticulously researched terraform of our pop-culture past. (Ed note: See a different take, Martin Scorsese’s top 85 films, here.) Before he could build the graphic, though, designer Larry Gormley had to narrow down thousands of candidates, collected over two years, to a more manageable figure. With the list in hand, Gormley began plotting. “The original feature-length movies were dramas, then came adventure/action films, then Westerns, etc. It’s a surprisingly effective visual. If you’d like a print of the graphic for your own, 43”x22” posters start at $34. Buy it here.
