Die Bruecke (The Bridge) left a indelible impression on me as did
To kill a Mockingbird,
The Boy in the striped Pajamas and
Boys don't cry
on a lighter note:
Airplane,
A funny Thing happened on the Way to the Forum and
The Producers (1968)

Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barells is brilliant too,
Love that film.

Guys, please watch "Derzu Usala".

Formaly, a series, but of more than 2hrs per chapter and because of its quality I propose "Cracker" with Robbie Coltrane here.

Regards,
M.

I do anyway. What no one really appreciates is that it was an allegory for Christianity that managed to get made in the Soviet Union.

These lists say more about the person posting than what is a great film.

BINGO

of course we could always just rely on Oscar, or Golden Globe, Cannes etc - hey they're the industry experts, they must know more than we

We're fortunate that Turner Classic will roll movies from the BioPic era -- usually in the wee hours of Monday mornings -- but you can DVR them. The TCM commentators also reference other films which played a role in the development of the art. (That's how I got my copy of "People on Sunday", "Menschen am Sonntag" directed by Billy Wilder.)

sooo what does it say about me? for me stalker is more than a movie, it's like a light philosophy book in moving picture form

the allegory you mention, that is one way to interpret it. And the movie barely made it... first shoot was destroyed by the government. Conspiracy theory? hardly! As if Tarkovsky,

a very competent director, with ridiculous attention to detail (remember how long the shots are in stalker? now do it on film. expensive, special film(make mental note of this)).

a man who sacrificed his own life (he was lethaly poisoned by the fumes at shooting locations for stalker) for the film

he would just, you know, not pay any attention to the fact that, hey, this film we're using, it's new, let's make sure it gets to competent hands and developed properly

the ussr, a government well known for its practices and ideals, destroyed the first shooting of the film. If you want i can discuss it further.

Hmm...

Inception
7 pounds
Pulp Fiction
The Dark Knight
The Dark Knight Rises
V for Vendetta
Kill Bill Pt 1 / Kill Bill Pt 2
Inglorious Basterds
X-men; First Class
Kal Ho Naa Ho
Perfect Blue
They Were Eleven
Silence of the Lambs
Shutter Island

...tbqh though, movies aren't exactly my favorite medium for drama etc.. too generally compressed for time to really be poignant.

LEON..
The warriors..(a bit dated)

I guess there could be a message in the films.. I guess it depends who's watching..
I guess it says I like action films..

The pacific...My dad died last year and he was at the battle of Matapan (I have some medals) He just hid them in the back of a drawer..He didn't talk much about it..he watched the film (Pacific)..and said I'm so glad I'm to old to see it happen again..He talked about picking up some (local) children in Java that were starving never seemed to manage to finish the story he always got to upset.. when he got to the part about giving them food but they couldn't eat it..even fruit..

Regards
M. Gregg
