I already have Everyone Else, it's on my to-watch list. Already have a torrent for Secret Sunshine. Am having a VERY hard time finding White Material without Dutch hard subs and it's really pissing me off. I'll probably get the Breillat as well, not sure when I'll get to the others (minus the Fincher, which I'll get to soon, and Mother, which I've already seen).

Can you watch MKV files comfortably? Because there seems to be a decent blu-ray rip out there you could go with.

I don't think there's another director I could do a top ten for, expect maybe Spielberg.

Let the good times roll:

1) The Last Crusade
2) Saving Private Ryan
3) Schindler's List
4) Jaws
5) Raiders of the Lost Ark
6) Jurassic Park
7) Minority Report
8) Hook ()
9) The Terminal
10) Catch Me If You Can

Also, I highly recommend people hunt down Under Capricorn. It's public domain so there's not a great DVD version of it, but it's one of the few Hitch period pieces, and it's also shot by Jack Cardiff. For that alone it's worth seeing. But it also has a mesmerizing perf by Ingrid Bergman and a long-take approach which is also rare for the director. It's not regarded highly in his filmography by many (and it's probably one of the least-seen of his films), but its champions are very enthusiastic. Here's what esteemed critic Dave Kehr says:

"Easily one of Alfred Hitchcock's half dozen greatest films, Under Capricorn has been senselessly neglected for years just because it isn't a thriller. Set in colonial Australia, at a time when many of the citizens were convicts working off their sentences, the film follows an Irish noblewoman (Ingrid Bergman) and her lower-class husband (Joseph Cotten) through a hellish milieu of guilt and repression. Never has Hitchcock's obsession with death and sexuality seemed so Lawrentian (the comparison, if anything, sometimes seems unfavorable to D.H.). Shot in astonishingly elaborate long takes, this is the kind of film that finds the most brilliant poetry in the slightest movement of the camera—a paradigm of cinematic expression."

Sounds intriguing, huh?

I know I've posted this before, but I'll do it again. There's an online archive that has tons of public domain stuff for free instant download, and UC is still on there. This is how I managed to see it. The mp4 version at 1.3 gigs is the best they have, just right click and it DLs pretty fast.

Enjoy:

Under Capricorn : Free Download & Streaming : Internet Archive

There's also other Hitchcock public domain stuff:

Internet Archive Search: mediatype:movies AND subject:"Alfred Hitchcock"

Young and Innocent is very entertaining.

This one doesn't show up on the list (like Under Capricorn) but they have it:

Jamaica Inn : Free Download & Streaming : Internet Archive

Ironically, it's one of the other period pieces, kind of a pirate/smuggling kind of thing. I thought it was cool.

Yeah, I figured that would get your attention. I've been hunting down so many of his films just to see his shit, esp. after watching the documentary about him. Got a copy of The Vikings recently, which turned out to be a very good film.

Stanley Kubrick, my favorite director:

#1) 2001: A Space Odyssey
#2) A Clockwork Orange
#3) Eyes Wide Shut
#4) The Shining
#5) Lolita
#6) Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
#7) Paths of Glory
#8) The Killing
#9) Full Metal Jacket (I need to watch it again, it's been a long time)
#10) Barry Lyndon (Need to rewatch it too)
#11) Spartacus
#12) Killer's Kiss

Not one single film that's not very very very good, except for Killer's Kiss, which is okay. But it's his first too, so...
