It was certainly along those lines, yes.

It might have been cleverer to list the first 20 favourites that came into my head, actually, but there we are.

Dammit rick. I watched Remember the Night and loved it, and only now I remember where I first heard of it I approve of it being ahead of The Searchers.
I assume you've seen Alice in the Cities and Wings of Desire? That's all I've got for now based on the list itself.

You should watch Christmas in July, Olaf. Or The Palm Beach Story. Also second rick's recommendation of Remember the Night.

Thanks. I'm afraid I've seen that, though it is one of my favourite musicals, so you're in the right sort of area.

Well, it's not set in stone, but I was doing my Top 100 for that Top 1000 poll and I felt like a change. I've had The Searchers up there for six or seven years and Remember the Night is the only film I watch every year, as well as being probably the movie that has the most profound effect on me. Thank you for caring, anyway.

I haven't seen Alice in the Cities, so I'll put that as #1. Cheers. Four to go.

I can definitely see myself often returning to Remember the Night, it's one of those films that lift you up and break your heart at the same time, and Stanwyck just has this odd effect on me, she's amazing.
Enjoy Alice in the Cities, it's a quietly beautiful film.
Given that I've run out of recommendations based on your list, how about something else entirely (well, not quite). What do you think/how much have you seen of Rohmer's work? (Damn, I feel like KGB's and Piles' lovechild)

Seeing your a fan of Ghost World have you seen Terry Zwigoff's earlier film, the documentary Crumb, a funny look into the life of the cult comic book artist.

I haven't seen any Rohmer. Where do I start? My Girlfriend's Boyfriend OK? I taped that a bit ago.

Nope, haven't seen Crumb. That's #2.

#1 Alice in the Cities
#2 Crumb

My Girlfriend's Boyfriend is good, but I wouldn't say top tier Rohmer. Try The Green Ray.

The Green Ray is absolutely Rohmer's best, but it's a good idea to get used to his work before going for the masterpieces, and My Girlfriend's Boyfriend is breezy, fun, and very Rohmer-esque, so I'd say it's a great starting point.

I'd only say that's true if the best films are more difficult, which I wouldn't really say is the case for the majority of Rohmer films.

I'll have another go rick, how about Ride the High Country a solid enough traditional Western with good performances from its stars. Although I predict you'll have seen it?

It's one of his favourite films

He is difficult though - I'm having problems thinking of any.

Does it have to be on UK DVD Rick?

I know many years ago Rick said he hadn't seen Castaway with Tom Hanks. Just in case he still hasn',. I'll recommend that. As for trying to link it to his list, Wilson could have appeared in Hoop Dreams.

Haha!

I still haven't seen it. I bought it on video (yes, that's how long ago it was) for about £3 from Music Zone, but just never got round to it. Dad's put tons of my old stuff in storage, so it's probably far, far away. But yes, I'll add that to the list.

elab - No, I'm multi-regionable.

Beetlejuice - As elab says, one of my favourites, that (favourite Peckinpah, favourite straight McCrea Western... as opposed to Americana, not as opposed to gay Westerns, I'm not opposed to gay Westerns). But Crumb's on the list.

You two are so Welsh. I had a look on IMDb; that looks brilliant.

Have either of you seen On the Black Hill? Mrs_7 got it for me last year, but we haven't got round to it yet.

Hedd Wyn really is an incredible film. It's in my top 100. On the Black Hill is great as well, fantastic performance from Bob Peck. I think Elab's a fan of that too.

It's wonderful. It has Bob Peck in it.

Those are also linked statements.

The easiest thing seems to be to recommend something that hasn't come out yet (unless you've not seen Secret in Their Eyes which I'm currently blanking on but it's been a long day). So Confessions (Nakashima). Comes out next month

Not sure if you've seen it rick, but try and see Kings of the Road after Alice in the Cities if you can. It's not as similar to Paris, Texas as Alice, but it's a tremendous film anyway.

No, I haven't seen it. I've only seen five of Wenders' films, so there's plenty to explore there. And I'll watch End of Days upon hell freezing over.

Surely only evil would recommend Cast Away as anything other than a joke?!?

Is one of the Wenders My American Friend, Rick? If not I'd try that next.

Or to do the excellent Hoop Dreams joke, perhaps?

No, the Wendersersis are Paris, Texas, The Goalkeeper's Fear..., Don't Come Knocking, Wings of Desire and Hammett. I haven't got the database with me, but I think that's all.

I'll watch My American Friend when I'm back on LoveFilm, cheers.
