Thanks for replying.
I wasn't asking for the names of directors (or for decades) but the  
titles of recent films that can stand (or have stood) the test of  
time, context (historical, sociological, filmographical, ethno- 
political, etc.) deleted or attenuated. Most of my students  
(undergraduates) don't have a grasp of the context, despite my  
efforts to supply it. What they learn from film depends on what they  
can see.
