Sam Kench of Brickwall Pictures gave a film history crash course for which he remarkably named one iconic film for each year of the 145 years since the birth of cinema. He began with the pioneering Horse In Motion chronophotograph of 1878 and concluded with the 2022 Daniel Kwan/Daniel Schweibert film Everything Everywhere All at Once. Some films are big hits for the year, several are rather disgusting in nature, yet important to cinematic history, and some are little known.
