""greatest films" recommendations-"


          

alright, for those who do or do not know, i've taken it upon myself to compile a list of the 100 greatest films of all-time. because after all, what do studied critics and directors know that a teenage kid can't correct.

i've set a deadline for watching movies for the list at March 15. in between then and now, i'm gonna make a point to watch everything considered "great" or "classic" . . .and Celebrity Mole. so if you want to recommend a couple titles that you think it wise for me to see before the final version is decided upon, please suggest something now.

several things:

a)if i don't end up watching your movie, sorry, i probably couldn't get a copy without paying (i'm using the school library).

b)if i end up watching your movie and don't put it on my list, sorry, you have bad taste in films.

c)spare the joke, "dude, you gotta watch Dutch" posts.

d)i've seen most of the standard "classic" Citizen Kane-esque movies already.

e)thanks

for me to know what you've seen and what you haven't seen so this is really an excercise in futility. For all I know you've seen them all, but here are a few of mine that aren't entirely obvious:

Roshomon
The Third Man
Rear Window
Amarcord
Spartacus
Das Boot
Doctor Zhivago
Dead Man
Matewan
Wings of Desire

thanks, I can't wait to see it. I am supposed to wait to watch it with a friend but she is going out of town for the weekend and I'm sure it will look VERY tempting just sitting there. I watched the trailer on the first disc and it really had me excited to see it but I think I will have to wait for next week sometime to see it.

Well, I reckon I've given you a lot of recommendations for this list over the past few months or so.

But hey, it won't hurt to add a few more!

And maybe I can also remind you of the importance of some previous recommendations. Ahem.

Here are some movies you ought to consider because I think they're good and might deserve a place on some kind of a list but then again who knows?:

(Note: it's possible you've seen some of these, and it's also possible that you've told me you've seen some of these, but I forgot)


Metropolis, M, You Only Live Once, Fury, The Big Heat - all directed by Fritz Lang.

Merchant Of Four Seasons, Marriage Of Maria Braun - both directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder

The Great Dictator - Charles Chaplin.

The Asphalt Jungle - John Houston.

Force Of Evil - Abraham Polonsky

Johnny Guitar, The Lusty Men - both directed by Nicholas Ray

Sullivan's Travels - Preston Sturges

The Roaring Twenties, White Heat - both directed by Raoul Walsh.

A Woman Under The Influence - John Cassavetes

The Gunfighter, Jesse James - both directed by Henry King

Hamlet - Laurence Olivier

This Gun For Hire - Frank Tuttle

La Strada - Federico Fellini

The Garden Of The Finzi-Continis - Vittorio De Sica

Frankenstein - James Whale

Last Year At Marienbad - Alain Resnais

That'll do for now. When I think of some more I'll post them up.

>A Woman Under The Influence - John Cassavetes

I haven't seen many Cassavetes movies so when I saw this I was so impressed by the performances but disappointed in the movie (while I was watching). The thing is though that I have never stopped thinking about this movie ever since, and when I do, all I can think about is how great it is. Weird.

and my bad, I didn't notice you already mentioned White Heat. I should have known.

>Last Year At Marienbad - Alain Resnais

I really don't think I can bring myself to watch another one of this guy's movies

I love this movie. There's so much to like about it. ***SPOILERS****


Like the scene where the whole family's at the dinner table and Gena Rowlands has just come back from the hospital. She asks her dad to "stand up for her" and he actually stands up! That's good movie!

This movie begs for a Criterion treatment. I got it on DVD but it's real old, you have to flip the disc over like a record halfway through. It's a drag.

Plus it's full screen, not letterboxed.

I did get to see it once letterboxed on IFC though, so I feel better now.

If you want to see more Cassavetes films that are somewhat similar in style to Woman Under The Influence, I would recommend "Opening Night" and "Minnie And Moskowitz". Both star Gena Rowlands too.

>and my bad, I didn't notice you already mentioned White

That's okay. I almost didn't mention it myself cause I figured you would. Just so long as Little Ricky gets the point! lol.

This one's a little different than Hiroshima. It's weird too though. And intentionally confusing.

And surreal.

Try it out though.

It's good.

I guess I just wasn't accustomed to his style. Like I said when thinking about it I think it's great lol. I'd really like to see it again soon.

Cool I want to see more of his stuff. I've only seen Killing of a Chinese Bookie (which I liked but not that much)

>I guess I just wasn't accustomed to his style.

Yeah, there's lots of sreaming and the camera's always moving.

Sometimes it looks like Cassavetes is hitting his cameraman in the head with a bat and wherever the camera points while the guy's stumbling to the ground, that's the shot you get.

>Cool I want to see more of his stuff. I've only seen Killing
>of a Chinese Bookie (which I liked but not that much)

I haven't seen that one yet. I want to. And of the two I just mentioned above, you should see Minnie And Moskowitz first, before Opening Night.

Have you seen anything he's acted in?

>>Try it out though.
>>
>>It's good.

One time when I was a little kid I was over at my grandmother's house. We ate what I thought was steak, but after we were done she says, "Guess what? You just ate a deer."

What?!?!? It was deer meat?

That's the type of thing that will scar you for life.

And if you're wondering . . . deer tastes like dead dreams. lol.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

don't care much for the discussion that will follow your screening of these movies (y'all OKP movie geeks kill me with your elitism), buuuuuuuut anyway, here's a few:
- L'Avventura
- Yi Yi
- Double Indemnity (classic Wilder noir, you've prolly seen it already)
- Creature from the Black Lagoon (dope underwater scenes)
- Cesar et Rosalie (Claude Sautet). Romy Schneider is beautiful n/m
- Laissez Passer (Tavernier), a 2002 flick about moviemakers during the French occupation
- Branded to Kill (Suzuki): eff a Tarantino
- Kikujiro (Kitano): get into Kitano....now
- The Long Goodbye: great Phil Marlowe adaptation
- anything Ozu

You seem to know a good deal about movies, so sorry if you've already seen these

hey, just my opinion. I didn't mean it as a knock on anyone, but it's just that when certain (read: arty) movies are discussed, it tends to fall in an elitist discussion, where anything Hollywood and recent sucks. I recommended those flicks because I enjoyed them, and you seem like you've seen a lot of movies (judging from your posts), but my fave movies are actually ET and Swingers, not really art-house fare, and I even saw 2 Fast 2 Furious in theater and kinda enjoyed it.
Elitism is only enjoying certain types of movies on the pretense that they are more intellectual.

there's trash cinema elitists, B-movie elitists, sci-fi elitists... it's not based on the intellectual quality of the movies at all.

Shame on you! Both Smoke & Blue in the Face are pretty good flicks. Lots of improv. I wouldnt put either 1 of them in the greatest films category tho.

I've recently realized how many classic or just plain great movies I've never seen and have set about to watch many of them. Here's Roger Egbert's list of his 100 greatest movies. Can't say I disagree or agree either way but I'm finding it a great starting point.

usually after I see a movie that I think is great I have a habit of checking to see if they're on that list, then I'll read the review. Around 3 out of 4 times it's on there.

maybe i should change deadline date to March 16, 2005.

if you could be so kind, from the ones in this post, could you narrow down the possible List worthy ones to about 10? and should these take precedent over those you've suggested before (Le Mystère Picasso and such)?

>if you could be so kind, from the ones in this post, could
>you narrow down the possible List worthy ones to about 10?

Okay, I'll try. But remember not every film I recommended is necessarily "top 10" material. But if I had to pick 10 especially noteworthy/listworthy films from my replies in this post I would go with:

Metropolis
M
You Only Live Once
Fury
The Big Heat

all by Fritz Lang. As I've mentioned before, Fritz Lang is one of my absolute favorite directors and these represent what I think are some of his best works. You shouldn't complete your list without looking into at least some of these. These are "top 10" material in my book.

After that, the best of what I mentioned here might include:

Mildred Pierce - by Michael Curtiz (who is most famous for directing Casablanca). It's got Joan Crawford in a great performance, a strong and dark visual atmosphere and an insightful social message to go with it. Michael Curtiz was a great talent. This film ranks high on any list.

Stromboli - by Roberto Rossellini. This film features what I personally think of as Ingrid Bergman's very best performance. That's reason enough for being listworthy. But it's got plenty more to be proud of too.

Force Of Evil - by Abraham Polonsky. Polonsky was a brilliant screenwrtier and was about to become a brilliant director. Shortly after this film, he was blacklisted for being a socialist. It ruined his career. This is one of his few films, and one of the best of its time. It's about the mob and the numbers racket, but it's actually Polonsky's giant metaphor (and harsh criticism) of the capitalist system. Stars John Garfield (you can't beat that).

Blood Of A Poet - by Jean Cocteau. This is a silent surrealist masterpiece by the great poet and filmmaker. It's kind of hard to put into words, but think of it as an attempt at documenting the working mind of a poet. It's wild.

since I'm about to hit number 10, I'll pick an underrated one (because you already know to look at Fellini films and Nicholas Ray films and Howard Hawks).

The Gunfighter - directed by Henry King. King was a great talent. This is my favorite of his films, and it stars Gregory Peck in one of his best performances. If someone asks you why Gregory Peck was a great actor, tell them to see this movie. It's about a gunfighter trying to give up the outlaw life, but his reputation follows him everywhere and no one seems willing to let him change or be anything except for what he's always been. Strong acting, a very strong social-political message, and brilliant photography and direction that's never flashy but always precise. . . it serves the story perfectly. See this film.

That should do it I guess. But don't overlook the other ones either.

>and should these take precedent over those you've suggested
>before (Le Mystère Picasso and such)?

No. See those first. . . the Fassbinder films, Tarkovsky's The Mirror, all that.

But I would put the Fritz Lang films on a high priority if I were you.

So there.

if you were to take everyone's top 100 reccomendations and put them into a pool there would probably be about 4000 in there. To take these and somehow figure out what the top 100 is so subjective and impossibily arduous. It's a fun game to play but in the end any kind of definitive list of "Greatest . . . . of all time" omits so many amazing works. Anyway, enjoy the films, I respect your passion for the art.

every pool of people who've done such a list have been from a specified field. imdb.com wouldn't necessarily agree with Sight & Sound readers. Roger Ebert wouldn't necessarily see eye-to-eye with David Walsh. we all have our biases, special interests, needs, quirks, pet peeves, and such. in the end, in the disclaimer that shall precede the list, i will let it be known, although i may call it "the 100 greatest films of all-time," it still is only my opinion.

to repeat, " because after all, what do studied critics and directors know that a teenage kid can't correct."

yeah I agree. I love looking at diverse listings just to get a feel for how different films are received. I'd never attempt to undertake the task myself though, too much of a headache. So when you post this list we'll all be ready to bitch about why our favorites aren't on it and argue the merits of your selections. It shall be fun.

Maybe not. . . or maybe SO!

>the others I haven't seen. I have Invasion of the Body
>Snatchers at home though. Just haven't watched it yet

Well if you don't think Paths Of Glory is listworthy, you sure as hell won't think Body Snatchers is. lol.

It's a b-level sci-fi, horror movie.

But it's so much more.

Can a b-movie get a spot on the top 100 of all time list?

I don't see why not.

And talk about a "social-political" message! That's all Body Snatchers is.

But I'll stop now so as not to ruin it for you.

>priority viewing?

No, not priority. I like it, but it's got nothing on many of the other films already recommended.

It's all up to whether or not you can see past its B movie characteristics and into the chewey social commentary center.

May not be listworthy to you.

Then again, it may be.

Either way, it's good.

Don Siegel is okay by me.

I don't know most of his work though.

As for Paths Of Glory, I like it. You know I'm not a giant Kubrick fan to begin with. But to me, this is one of his more important films.

You really don't like it huh?

Oh by the way, I ordered a copy of Heartworn Highways. It should be here in a couple days. I'll post a review of what I think.

Country music rocks!!!!!!!

and it just didn't add up to much in the end for me.
Siegel gets pretty right wing at times (not to the point of becoming a bigot or anything), but then so did John Ford.

And I'm infuriated at Amazon.ca for changing heartworn highways from "ships in 24 hours" to "ships within 3 to 5 weeks". Bastards!

Yeah.

I hate Joe Pesci.

A lot.

James Cagney is in my top 10 actors of all time list (were such a list actually to exist).

Pesci. . . I don't even know what to say about Pesci.

Only that I've never enjoyed a single performance he's given in any film ever.

He makes my skin crawl.

Ok I didn't read this list over too carefully but I only saw I think three movies that I double posted, or are you talking abuot that Ebert list because I haven't looked at it yet.

I remembered some more though:

High Noon (I just like the fact that it's a real time movie)

Bonnie and Clyde

Out of the Past

Sunset Boulevard (I like a lot of noir stuff)

Taste Of Cherry is awesome.

That's all there is to it.

Maybe you would have liked it if Joe Pesci was in it or something.

I think it's incredible.

I also think his film Close Up and his film The Wind Will Carry Us are incredible.

Kiarostami is one of the best out there today.

Without a doubt.

You can have Scorsese and Gangs Of New York.

I'll take the axis of evil. Thank you very much.

Home Alone (the first one) he was in Chicago. and Gone Fishin was about Florida, i think. 8 Heads in a Duffel Bag was set in the straigh-to-video aisle, saved costs that way.

Well don't listen to Doc and Mynoriti then.

Taste of Cherry is an excellent movie.

Because it's already perfect.

Hell is where you can watch a tripple feature of Goodfellas, Taxi Driver and Raging Bull.

In heaven you have to watch Cries and Whispers on a 13 inch TV with foil paper on the antenna

That's not true. One time I had a near death experience and I went up to heaven and they had big TVs and all the Criterion titles and all the women looked like Bibi Andersson and Catherine Bell.

No, Ricky I don't like JAG. But I *do* like Catherine Bell.

Besides, I heard you watch Walker Texas Ranger and try to do Karate chops in your kitchen.

96. "What about Night and Fog?"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Since you guys have mentioned Resnais I figure you've seen Night and Fog. How did you guys ract to this movie when you first saw it? By the time it got to the mountains of women's hair I wasn't sure if I could take anymore, at least it's only a half hour.

Try to realise it's all within yourself
No-one else can make you change
And to see you're really only very small,
And life goes on within you and without you.
-George Harrison

As a film it's great. But you're right, parts of it are hard to watch. Like you said, the part with the women's hair was especially gruesome.

It's a rough one to take. But it should be seen far and wide.

I liked very much the ending. The narrator's last lines really shift a lot of responsibility onto the viewing audience to protect the future.

Definitely an important film.

In response to Reply # 0


          

couple of films i feel are pretty damn classic (or will be)...

requiem for a dream (modern classic)
in the mood for love (international classic, classic love story)
pulp fiction (modern classic)
lost in translation (classic love story)
eyes wide shut (people shit on kubrick for this, but fuck 'em)
irreversible (devastating, completely unique, compelling)
la dolce vita (the last scene is incredible)
battle royale (see it for the controversy)
