He tends to go back and forth between romantic comedies and action films, great at both. Check out My Left Eye Sees Ghosts, The Mission, PTU, Sparrow, Breaking News, Needing You, Don't Go Breaking My Heart
Only Election and Drug War for me thus far. Alongside Jodorowsky, John Waters, Weerasthakul, Von Sternberg, Dreyer, Fassbinder, Campion, Röhmer, Denis, and Wong Kar-Wai, To is one of my biggest directorial blind spots. Some silly shit, for sure. Devoting 2014 to a lot of the more intellectual fare that I've been hesitant to approach.

Holy shit, I hadn't seen any of Paolo Sorrentino's work before, but The Great Beauty is one of the best films of the last few years.

Blown away.

Denis, Rohmer, Weerasethakul, Sternberg! You're in for some great stuff. All of the above are fantastic, except I'm not as familiar with Jodorowsky as I should be. Have you seen much/any Kiarostami? Best filmmaker in the world right now... by like a lot, I.M.VeryH.O. of course.

Nah, though Close-Up and Certified Copy have been near the top of the list for me for quite some time.

Other folks I forgot to mention: Hark, Sayles (who I saw tonight while getting out of work before his intro/Q&A for Go for Sisters), Boetticher, Sirk, Frank Henenlotter, Larry Cohen, Chabrol, Vigo, Rivette, Resnais, Assayas, Buster fucking Keaton.

A bulk of the hesitation has been fatigue at this point. Gathering lists and information about what to watch tires me out; it's the same attitude I had toward mandatory reading in school. Except now, I'm only enrolled in the School of Hard Knocks. Having a ridiculous amount of rental and repertory options guides it to a degree, but I'd like to focus more on clearly articulating points either for the purpose of writing or programming.

In case you're interested, this is "the list:" Top of the "Watchlist", a list of films by Jake • Letterboxd

Close-Up is perfect place to start. In addition to those two prioritize the Koker trilogy, Taste of Cherry, and Ten for a wide view of his work. Jafar Panahi's two best films shot from Kiarstami scripts too, Crimson Gold and The White Balloon.

Fun list, wrt Sirk have you seen Written on the Wind or Imitation of Life?

Awesome, thank you.

Have not. I rented All I Desire as part of a mini-Stanwyck binge but had to rip to my hard drive due to time constraints.
