Not the best ever, but 3 worth watching: The Red Riding Trilogy. 1974 was my favourite.

I have seen it several times and still can't believe it. I go from being shocked to being depressed, I take a little break when I notice I'm starting to go insane. Really hardcore. Children and immature minds: stay away from this one.
A great film, but Lanzmann is a little heavy-handed in places and treats many of the witnesses poorly, particularly the so-called "bystanders". It's easy now to criticize the Polish people for having done nothing, but Lanzmann should have known better, since millions of non-Jewish Poles were sent to labor camps, were persecuted, or were murdered as well.

Yes, you can clearly see he's pissed off. Probably biased. :-) You can also really see that the Polish workers who lived near the camps were very rudimentary persons. Not their fault if Nature made them that way (half-witted).

Jlsem -- reminds me of the joke "How do you tune a banjo?"
ans: "Throw it in the garbage, and when it hits the acordian, it's tuned."

'Pather Panchali' should be on the list if it already isn't.

With Lanzmann it's hard to say whether he's so dialed-in to the Holocaust because he is Jewish (I understand he is really a secularist) or because his own philosophy compels him to demonstrate what rotten people people are.

Speaking of great films, does anyone know where this house is? It was used as a set in The Godfather Part II and I assume it's somewhere in Sicily:

Messina province, North-East side of the island.
Main location was the city of Taormina, some footage 5 miles up north to the village Savoca, plus some shots 5 miles south of Taormina in Fiumefreddo.
Here's a good map : http://patandlewtravel.files.wordpre...sicily-map.jpg

(me got stranded several weeks on the isle in '80, don't ask)
