Only 2 of 4 Nolan films will make the cut for me...Inception and Dunkirk unless I made a really long list.

Most of my list will prob consist of Scorsese/DiCaprio/QT/Nolan. I’m biased as hell but these guys are my favs and have delivered tremendous work this decade. I’ll come up with something once I think about it more.

Great lists so far. I'm gonna have to think real hard on my list, but Inception will probably be #1.
