The early Eighties, maybe. A few titles come to mind: The Elephant Man (1980), The Blues Brothers (1980), The Shining (1980), Blade Runner (1982), Fitzcarraldo (1982), Fanny och Alexander (1982).

The 1970s was a classic era of cinema for me. Movies from this period are well made, have some great stars and interesting social commentary. Some great films from this time:
The French Connection (1971)
The Godfather (1972)
The Sting (1973)
Serpico (1973)
The Godfather: Part II (1974)
Marathon Man (1976)
Alien (1979)
Apocalypse Now (1979)

The Godfather
Aguirre: The Wrath of God
Deliverance
Last Tango In Paris
Solaris
Frenzy
Fellini's Roma
Lone Wolf and Cub: Sword of Vengeance

As Stehako mentioned earlier:

"2007 (No Country for Old Men, Into the Wild, Assassination of Jesse James, There Will Be Blood, Ratatouille, and many many more)
and 2013 (Wolf of Wall Street, American Hustle, Her, Inside Llewyn Davis, and many more) are recent years that showcased a large amount of stellar films"

For sure, 2007 is one of those great years. No Country, There Will Be Blood, The Assassination of Jesse James, and Michael Clayton.
