I wouldn't touch a frame on any of these films.

There are a lot of great films that seem as if they could improve from some slight alteration but aren't really any less great because of it. I think a desire for perfection can actually hamper a lot of artists from tackling the stuff that is actually more important. Pasolini films are less perfect than, say, Wes Anderson films, but they are much greater works of art.
