I think you've seen anything I can recommend.
Unless you haven't seen any Malick. In which case, watch some Malick.

Or Spirit of the Beehive. You may like that.

Yep, seen An Actor's Revenge, another one which I rated 9/10, hitting a lot of these. Still need to see The Burmese Harp and Fires on the Plain by Ichikawa.

Seen The Tree Of Life and have all other Malick films on my watchlist already. Also have Spirit of the Beehive on my watchlist.

Submarine
Moolaade
Eureka
Devils on the Doorstep
My Winnipeg
The Band's Visit
Silent Light
and what the heck, a bit of fun - The Host

Only seen The Host and Submarine from that list, one or two which I haven't heard of, thanks. I think Eureka is on sale at my local DVD shop at the moment, may get it.

I love Guy Maddin, My Winnipeg's been on my list for a while.

That's quite a list TartanLlama, have you seen the anime Paprika? It's a surreal vision of future society. Seems like your type of thing. It's also pretty excellent, which is a plus

I've not seen it, been on my watchlist for a while as it looked interesting. It seems that it is only £4 at hmv.com, so I think I'll get it. Thanks.

Hi, I'm new here. Here's my top 20. I hope I don't forget any!

This list isn't exactly in order. I just typed them as they came to me. I'm sure on a different day, the list might turn out somewhat differently.

1. Taxi Driver (Scorsese)
2. Le Samourai (Melville)
3. Pulp Fiction (Tarantino)
4. Army of Shadows(Melville)
5. Fargo (Coen)
6. The 400 Blows (Truffaut)
7. There Will Be Blood (PT Anderson)
8. High and Low (Kurosawa)
9. Cinema Paradiso (Tornatare)
10. Rififi (Dassin)
11.Rules of the Game (Renoir)
12. Barton Fink (Coen)
13. Battle of Algiers (Pontecorvo)
14. Blow Out (De Palma)
15. Charade (Donen)
16. No Country For Old Men (Coen)
17. La Dolce Vita (Felini)
18. Fitzcarraldo (Herzog)
19. Once Upon A Time In America (Leone)
20. Leon (Besson)

Here's my top 10 of the last decade, I'm not sure if I can do this. But I figure it might help

1. There Will Be Blood
2. JSA(Joint Security Area)
3. No Country For Old Men
4. City of God
5. Dogville
6. Eastern Promises
7. Let the Right One In
8. The Departed
9. Turtles Can Fly
10. Mulholland Drive

First of all, welcome. Your list has films I adore (the Leone, the Scorsese, the Truffaut), as well as ones I really hate (the PTA, the Meirelles).
So what to suggest?
First of all, to be topical, see Drive. I detected certain Melville influences and there's some dark humour akin to the Coen's.
Secondly, what other Truffaut and De Palma have you seen? I'm a big fan of both and prefer other films to these two (although they're both great). May I suggest Shoot the Pianist and Dressed to Kill, for instance?
Thirdly, you have both Blow Out and La Dolce Vita there, both of which loosely remind me of Antonioni. So watch either Blow-Up or his alienation trilogy.
Report back when you do!

Thank you. I've seen most of De Palmas films. The only 4 I don't think I've seen, Dressed to Kill, Fury, Black Dahlia, Redacted.
As for Truffaut, I'm missing many of his titles. But Shoot the Piano Player comes to mind as one I should see soon. I'll also check out Antonioni's films. I've been meaning to see Blow Up.
I did see Drive. It's currently my favorite film of the year. The next film I really look forward to is TTSS.
I appreciate the suggestions. Thank you. I'll check out as many as I can!

What a great list Mike!

How about Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai - arthouse homage to the crime and samurai genre from Jim Jarmusch. It's also pretty funny.

Yeah I haven't seen it in a good while either but it did leave a good impression. It turned out to be one of those DVDs that just goes missing. Whatever happens to those discs???


Anyways, I'm presuming you've seen both, but how about Lynch's Blue Velvet or John Woo's The Killer?

I need to see Blue Velvet. I've been putting it off after Lost Highway put a bad taste in my mouth. But Mulholland Drive is one of my favorite films of the last decade. And Rabbits is my favorite web series of all time. The Killer is my favorite John Woo film. I like it more than Hardboiled, which seems to be everybody elses favorite Woo film.

Thanks for the suggestions

If you like John Woo stuff, I can recommend a Better Tomorrow 2 as the pinnacle of his collaberations with Chow Yun Fat

I also have a really soft spot for Once a Thief which is a bit like Hudson Hawke but by John Woo - my personal fave of these types of films.

The difficulty with you is obviously finding films you haven't seen but I'll try a couple.

You enjoyed Nakashima's Confessions - have you seen Kamikaze Girls?

And a couple of other Flipside recommendations - Voice Over and Little Malcolm might be up your street.

Not seen any of those, elab. I shall hunt them down.

Naked is excellent so count that as my recommendation and since you have a few war dramas on the list how about The Grey Zone, less known but pretty good with a cast that includes Steve Buscemi and Harvey Keitel.

Ok, some serious recs.

War Horse - If you want a similar idea in a film without Spielberg yelling DO YOU SEE! DO YOU SEE WHAT WE'RE DOING HERE? DO YOU? LOOK AT THE HORSE! DO YOU UNDERSTAND? I THINK YOU'RE NOT AS SMART AS I AM. DO. YOU. UNDERSTAND? LOOK AT THE LOVELY LOVELY HORSE! then watch Au Hasard Balthazar.

The Artist - Anything by Maddin, or the silent Call of Cthulhu

Deep End - Mumsy, Nanny, Sonny & Girly, for the same weird UK vibe. Or something like Symptoms or Deviation if you can track them down.
