Can we have a bit about them? Not heard of Persona myself. Or Wait Until Dark... Good other films (the ones I've seen that is) tho!

A short paragraph on each, or just a few of them would be fine I believe, just so that we can grasp why you personally view them to be so good.

91 - Gus Van Sant's most effective film so far. An affecting performance from the late River Phoenix, and Van Sant playing around with the possibilities of the medium, plus a barrel of shakespeare ...

92 - Bergman at his most bleak. Not one for all occasions, but powerful as hell.

93 - Hey this one's claustrophobic too, but it is significantly the only film where Liz Taylor acts the hell out of everybody. HEY SWAMPY.

94 - Wenders has 2 films in my 100. I think he's a real master of mood.

95 - Gilliam's best film. Cinematic dystopia, dazzling.

96 - A powerful drama, Nicholson mid 70s - enough said.

97 - Jean Renoir's best film (always thought Rules of the Game was seriously over-rated).  Jean Gabin in the lead, with each scene adding to Renoir's thoughtful and moving war movie.

98 - The only film that Nicholson manages to reign in his bug-eyed over-acting which started circa Batman late 80s. Beautifully written and directed.

99 - The blind Audrey Hepburn suffers as she's tormented by the demented Alan Arkin. Very stagey but check this out if you haven't seen it.

100 - The perfect observational documentary.

Cool. You know, I only just noticed About Schmidt nestled in there amongst the others. I thought it was a great film too - sometimes I reckon some actors have a recognisable style so that they can change it every now and again for an Oscar nod (stand up Jim Carrey, Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson). It was a beautiful little film, and nice to see on a 'top' list.
The following only really spoils the complete surprise of this event, but I'll hide it anyway to retain the surprise for those who haven't seen it... Of course, it's also notable for full nudity from Kathy Bates....

pt 2

81 - 90


Rebel Without a Cause
Modern Times
Au Hasard Bathazar
Kind Hearts & Coronets
The Aviator
The Passenger
Evil Dead 2
My Life as a Dog
In a Lonely Place
Personal Velocity

Rebel & Lonely are two classic Nick Ray movies from the fifties, the first has James Dean with cinema's finest red jacket, whilst the second has an amazing performance by Bogart as a troubled writer.

MT and Kind Hearts are brilliant, witty and timeless.

Balthazar is a french movie by Robert Bresson, and is unique in its storytelling. My Life as a Dog is charming and moving.

Passenger and Personal Velocity are transcendental experiences.

Evil Dead is horror at its best and The Aviator is criminally under-rated, better than The Departed I'd say.

NO! The first post went #91 - 100

Blimey, I'd forgotten about that.
I think it's changed a bit though (so there's a bit of suspense).

so my final post will be my top ten.

For the record none of the following make my top 100: LOTR, Star Wars, Shawshank, Fight Club, The Godfather(s).

This isn't because I'm being deliberately awkward, it's just I feel there are so many far better movies out there.

76 Fitzcarraldo by Herzog

Totally bonkers, both the subject matter, this film's existence and, m ost of all, Klaus Kinski. See the doc about the making of..

77 JFK by Stone

Love conspiracy theories, so this movie was a feast. Have to admit the final scene on a recent viewing dragged, but there's some great film-making here.

78 Annie Hall by Woodster

Woody Allen is a great director and there are quite a few of his movies in this top 100. This movie still works, hilarious, nostalgic, touching, melancholy. Allen's movies were special 1977-1990.

79 Manon des sauces by Berri

Companion piece to the admittedly superior Jean de Florette. Bloody tragic.

80 Broadway Danny Rose by Woodster

Funny! Mia Farrow's best performance in an Allen movie. Also, Allen is different here, not quite the same persona.

Idaho is an astonishing film - one of the best fifteen or so ever made. Truly unique. Nice list so far.

Lynch has two movies in the 100. This is a film that divides opinion, but I think it has some fabulously cinematic moments eg in the theatre listening to "Crying" in spanish, and such daring and playful use of narrative ambiguities.

Lynch always verges on self-parody, but here he walks that razor's edge and triumphs. It has to be said that he doesn't always succeed.

An irresistible blend of classical hollywood cinema and surreal pantomime. Flying monkeys and the Cowardly Lion guarantee a place in the 100. PUT EM UP!

#73 Lost in Translation
 
Seems to be a bit of a backlash against this movie, yet the performances are undeniably excellent, as is the feeling of being lost, and some great comic/romantic moments.

# 72 The King of Comedy


The second Scorsese movie so far - but not the last.

This film gets better as it gets older & the more viewings you allow yourself. In comparison, Raging Bull seems a bloated, beached whale of a movie. This is the better De Niro performance, & the one that will stand the test of time. The delusional protagonist of our age.

There's some great stuff in there- One Flew Over the Cuckoo's nest, Le Grande Illusion, Rebel Without a Cause, Annie Hall, Manon de Sources, just some quick examples. I sure hope you're being sarcastic.
