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.
