Since you have a couple of Kurosawa films, you may have already seen it but my recommendation is Rashomon. Other than that, for the distinct lack of Bogart i recommend In a lonely place and Casablanca. Also for there not being any James Stewart in the list i would recommend Rear Window (also covers there not being any Hitchcock) and Mr. Smith goes to Washington (No Frank Capra films). Im thinking you have possibly watched all of these though, but if theres one which you havent seen, then i recommend you watch that one

Its a shame this thread seems to have died the last couple of days. Maybe it is time for someone else to post their list to try and get it going again?

How about Jacques Rivette's Paris Nous Appartient (I just brought it myself), or basing it off your high rating of Tati's Playtime, one of his other films, Jour de Fete, or Louis Malle's unique and imaginative Zazie Dans Le Metro? Failing that, have you see Summer with Monika (Bergman), or I Am Cuba (I'm watching this myself in a few days)?

Yep, its a stunning film, although I'd place about 3 or 4 other Bresson films above it. But then again, I have a higher opinion of him than most on these forums...

quote:

How about Jacques Rivette's Paris Nous Appartient


Well this has been on a 'To see' list for some time now (ie. when I have 4hrs to waste). I don't think it should count if you're already trying to to see it.

quote:

Seeing as its one nomination per person, I'll take the Malle, as I haven't seen any of his films yet (nope, not even Au Revoir Le Enfants). I am Cuba sounds fascinating, although I wouldn't know where to find it.

Stranger Than Paradise


I'm a big fan of Jarmusch already, so I've seen this. Down By Law has been a mainstay in my top 50/100 for quite some time now.

Yes. Its great isn't it? The comparisons to Renoir are the highest compliment this film can be paid really.

It's only 7.98- bargain!

As for Louis Malle, he's a unfairly overlooked director- he has quite a few great films to his name, and arguably two masterpieces, if not more. I know it's only one nomination per person, but if you get a chance you should pick the up the Louis Malle Vol.1 boxset- it contains Lift to the Scaffold, Les Amants, Zazie Dans Le Metro and Le Feu Follet, all of which are great films.

I don't think you'll be allowed that one as council peeps have to watch it just now anyway.

Chinatown - one of the most perfect creations of neo-noir - how about the superb modern noir The Last Seduction?

2 suggestions from the modern cinema of countries your list touches on - The Return from Russia and Consequences of Love from Italy. Both, I think, will stand the test of time.

For some lighter elements, the wonderful Kontroll - inexplicably left off S&S top 10 for new Eastern European cinema even though a large pic from it adorns the front of the article!

TMWNS - What Bresson films would you place above pickpocket? I have only seen two of his films so far (Pickpocket and L'argent) but im not sure which ones to look at next (im guessing you will say a man escaped, but i kind of meant other than that one).

Have you seen La Haine?

Yes. Its great isn't it? The comparisons to Renoir are the highest compliment this film can be paid really.


Sure is,I'd say it's as good as anything I've seen from Renoir but I've never really thought of a comparison between them other than the film which it immediately reminded me of is Kurosawa's adapatation of Gorky's The Lower Depths which Renoir also filmed.Akira Kurosawa acknowledged Yamanaka as one of his teachers and I think the influence is very evident comparing these films.All the more remarkable that Yamanaka was only 28 when he made this and a tragic loss that he died so young.Sadao Yamanaka is a good example of the kind of talent Japanese cinema has produced that never gets the acknowledgement it deserves.In the main,western film criticism's view of Japanese cinema is focused on such a limited canon that countless great directors are just ignored.


What about Hiroshi Teshigahara then ? Three films available over here all collaborations with writer Kobo Abe and composer Toru Takemitsu, Pitfall,The Face of Another and Woman in the Dunes.
If you've seen any of them,how about something a bit different from anything in your list,Jia Zhang Ke's Unknown Pleasures.One of my favourite directors working today,critically acclaimed but relatively unknown,not going to appeal to everyone but worth a look.Or maybe I could interest you in the charms of the genius that is Aki Kaurismaki.

Yeah Louis Malle's worth a look,you can't watch everthing but I'm quite surprised MWNS hasn't seen any of his films yet,Le Feu Follet was the first one I saw and it remains my favourite.

The Return is good but with Kontroll it's a film that's quite enjoyable and shows potential but overall I found it a bit of a letdown,there's a good film in there somewhere under all the unresolved plotlines.

Gah, I had written out a long post and the computer timed out on me! Twice!

The jist of it was that Bresson is amazing, Humanity and Paper Balloons definitely contains strong Renoiresque traits and that I'll look out for The Last Seduction and Pitfall. I may type it out later.

I still need two more though (sorry Beetlejuice!).

Well for Beetlejuice i will say check out City on fire. You can see where the influence for Reservoir dogs is and i would say it is a superior film. Sorry TMWNS i cant think of anymore for you at the moment. Ill come back later when i have thought about it.

Chris Marker's La Jetee. Its a short film entirely made up of pictures about a man who is sent back in time by scientists who are living in a post-nuclear war world, in order to bring back help and supplies, only to become obsessed by a woman and his childhood memories. Sound familiar? Gilliam remade it as 12 Monkeys - both are good films, but La Jetee is really something special.
