Des, what was it like going to the premiere of 'All Quiet on the Western Front '? I know it was a while back but...

Yes I remember it well--my girlfriend at the time didn't much care for it--But I admit I did cry for the Butterfly.

"Birth of a Nation" was another memorable experience--had to lie about my age to get into that one!😁

I'm glad to see The Battle For Algiers listed close to the top. Done in b&w newsreel style (neo-realism), it's so convincing one could be forgiven for believing it contains actual news footage.

One glaring omission for me was Russian director Alex Klimov's excellent movie Come And See, probably the most disturbing war movie I've ever seen. It looks at the occupation of Byelorussia by German soldiers through the eyes of a 15 year old Russian. Not for the faint hearted.
