I've devised the 'A Year of Essential Cinema' list as direct response to 'A Story of Film: An Odyssey' back in 2012 as a way of catching up with the recognised film canon. Since 2012 my knowledge of film and the breath of cinema I have consumed has magnified ten fold and I can't thank Mark Cousins enough for encouraging me to delve deeper.

I devised a 2nd part some time ago and I kept to the same formula, tackling films chronologically and from a wide source of film movements, countries and directors.

This list is a guide only and a dedicated viewer could easily watch them all within the year allocated. For me this list is become an enjoyable experience that guides rather than dictates my viewing, I love the breath that cinema offers and without taking in all it offers I feel one will never truly understand the full wonder of the medium,
