How about favourite films of the decades, but done one by one this time to space them out a bit? Could start with the 2000s so far then work backwards, but it will be interesting to see how far back we can go and still have some decent lists / discussion.

I really dig that idea, too. That sounds like a winner. How many per decade though? 10, 15?

When it hits the '60s though, that's when the popularity might wane.

Maybe 15 to start with for the first few decades, I know I'd struggle to keep it down to 10 for the 80s onwards

And yeah I figured anything pre-70s would see a dip in votes, but it will still be interesting to see what comes out.

Yeah, I was thinking the same. I can barely scrape 10 for the '70s right now, it's a little pathetic.

Ah, just means you've got loads of great films to discover. Those marathons of yours will be great for finding new directors, actors, styles, etc to explore.

Definitely, I'd welcome a slight change in aesthetics right now.

Wes Anderson can only do so much for me, you know?

I'm starting to think Wes Anderson can only do so much for himself.

Also, one of the handy things about older films is that the ratings are generally suitable for all, so no need for tiny i-pod screens *grins*

This is true.

The only directors I have problems renting are Scorcese and PT Anderson... only the 2 whose films I want to see the most, go figure. I'll be able to see their work no matter what, just depends how.

I'm on board for any decade list you want to do. Would we do this on a new thread?

If you want a crash course in the 70's, LMP, I'd recommend all Robert Altman from that decade (including Nashville, The Long Goodbye, Brewster McCloud, McCabe & Mrs. Miller, M*A*S*H), all Coppola (in addition to The Godfathers you'd want The Conversation, Apocalypse Now), the fantastic Bertolucci (Last Tango In Paris , The Conformist, 1900) and the work of Hal Ashby, who isn't a brilliant director in his own right but made a handful of the decade's more important films (Shampoo, Coming Home, Harold & Maude, The Last Detail, Being There, Bound For Glory). And you would also want the William Friedkin two-fer (The French Connection & The Exorcist), and Peter Bogdanovich's pre-crash & burn work (The Last Picture Show, What's Up Doc?, Paper Moon). Under the radar might be the work of Bob Fosse (Cabaret, Lenny, All That Jazz), who was talented enough to win the directing Oscar over Coppola, in a year where Cabaret won 7 awards to Godfather's 3. Most impressive.

Couple I forgot are Sidney Lumet, another guy who didn't have much of a distinct style but made some landmark films (Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, Network), as well as Alan J Pakula (All the President's Men, The Parallax View, Klute.

And you have some filmmakers who did stuff a bit more commerical but well worth seeing anyway, like George Roy Hill (The Sting, Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid, The Great Waldo Pepper, Slaughterhouse Five), and of course the early and brilliant Woody Allen films (Bananas, Sleeper, Love & Death, Annie Hall, Manhattan).

For something a bit more esoteric, I'd check out Antonioni's The Passenger (actually in English, and w/ Jack Nicholson!), and if you want to go the foreign route I'd go right to Andrei Tarkovsky and his brilliant 1970's work (the original Solaris, The Mirror, Stalker). Fellini has a couple great 70's films as well (Amarcord, Roma).

Last but the opposite of least, you'll want too see Malick's first two as well (Badlands, Days of Heaven).

I'm sure you have seen some of these already but I wanted to be thorough. I'm not including any early Lucas or Spielberg as those are kind of obvious, and not really "essential" in film snob terms. I also don't need to tell you about Kubrick or Marty. Should be a pretty good primer.

Thank you for that list, I'll add them to the Netflix queue.

The next contest would be on another thread.
