Terence Stamp "The Collector" or "Billy Bud". Alan Bates "The Fixer", "Butley", "The Shout", it goes on forever. If you are open minded Lester's "The Bed Sitting Room" or "How I Won the War". Lidsay Anderson "IF...." and "O Lucky Man". Peter Weir, "Last Wave", "Picnic at Hanging Rock".

If you are into the impossible to find Elmer Rice's "The Adding Machine" with Milo O'Shey and Billy Whitelaw.

One of the determining films were my experiences in my childhood The Wage of the Fear. (Le salaire de la peur)
I am glad anyway, that a lot of my favourites, can be found on the list of other ones.

These belong to the Japanese films, between my old favourites recurring:
Kaneto Shindō:
The naked island
Onibaba
Hiroshi Teshigahara:
Suna no onna

I find it a little bit strange, that I do not see too many Japanese visitors on the forum.
