Umbrellas' Top 100 Films of the 1980s

Here are my favourite 100 films of the 1980s, ranked in order of how much I like them (favourite first). Though I don't think of it as one of my favourite decades for film, when I look at this list I start to wonder (even if I did cheat a bit by including a handful of TV dramas). And the top film is in my view Leone's supreme masterpiece - perhaps the eighties can be considered a great decade for film simply because it includes Once Upon a Time in America, whatever else happened in those ten years.
