1001 Movies to Watch Before You Die

Inspired by user “Me” over on The Deuce forums, this is a thread where you name a movie that you think everyone should see, until we eventually get 1001 titles. To make this massive list as wide ranging as possible, please not too many films by the same director.

So to start off (it would also be nice if each title was a link to it’s IMDb page):

  1. The Third Manhttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt0041959/
  1. Mon Oncle
  1. Bloodsucking Freakshttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077247/
  1. The Wild Bunchhttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt0065214/
  1. Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes
  1. Deep Red (Dario Argento)

  2. El Topo (Alejandro Jodorowsky)

  1. The Reflecting Skin

[Edit - this film haunts me - I had it on vid, but when I went to play it last the tape had gone mouldy? - yet others were ok. It might be my memory, but I found this film profoundly moving when I first saw it, and I wonder why it wasn’t seen much. Others at imdb obviously think so too - I’ve included it, not to be ‘arty’ but because it was the first film outside sws that came to mind.]

  1. Eraserhead

[quote=“Silence, post:6, topic:2272”]5. Deep Red (Dario Argento)

  1. Dirty Harry

Master of the Flying Guillotine! :stuck_out_tongue:

I will not put , Fritz Lang, Sergei M. Eisenstein, D.W. Griffith,(sorry if I can’t remember others) I’ve think those directors are above this classifications, because they started the all thing or something like that. I don’t Know it’s dificult to explain but I think they are above classification.

Viva Gringo Ramone

Other pick:

Mad Max 2

  1. Zatoichi (Takeshi Kitano)
