PFR One (Hundred) Year(s) in Film: 2021 Edition

After missing out on this tradition last year, we at Portland Film Review decided to dust off our One (Hundred) Year(s) in Film list for another go-round. For those who have not seen either our 2018 or 2019 editions, the general idea is this: Jane, Nathan, and Devin go back through the last century of film and pick a favorite from the year in each decade that corresponds to our current new year. So, in 2018, we picked favorites films from 1918, 1928, 1938, and so on, and this year will see us pick from 1921, 1931, and up through the decades. It gives a chance to spotlight the older films we love that we don’t often get a chance to highlight, and maybe you, dear reader, will find a few you want to check out.
