Yes, it's excellent, and one of the most bitingly comic film's I've seen.

Pretty curious about the BRD trilogy, and also Ali: Fear Eats the Soul.
Oh let's see. I believe Petra, the BRD films, Ali, 13 Moons, and the Merchant of Four Seasons. Looking forward to getting into B.A. sometime soonish.

So, should I be replacing Stroszek with Aguirre in my Netflix queue? I want a starting point, and I'm just not sure where to go. I figured if the former was good enough for Ian Curtis, it's good enough for me.

Good to know, thanks. I need to explore more of Fassbinder, maybe I'll get the BRD trilogy in the next Criterion sale.

I'd say Aguirre is pretty quintessential.

I also liked Fitzcarraldo a lot.

Haven't seen Stoszek but it's not one of the more-talked about titles.

You could probably buy Dalton's copy.

I don't think he ever watched it; he was pretty pissed off when he realized that he read it wrong and it wasn't the "B&D trilogy".

1. Apocalypse Now (Coppola, '79)
2. Alien (Scott, '79)
3. Star Wars (Lucas, '77)
4. A Clockwork Orange (Kubrick, '71)
5. Jaws (Spielberg, '75)
6. Taxi Driver (Scorsese, '76)
7. Frenzy (Hitchcock, '72)
8. The Poseidon Adventure (Neame, '72)
9. The Towering Inferno (Guillermin, '74)
10. The Cassandra Crossing (Cosmatos '76)

The bottom three I stuggled with because they are comfort movies that I grew up with and can still watch and have a great time with to this day, even though they aren't great and are in that whole disaster movie mold. Love them, though.

That's the most American list ever created. Sorta.

Welles was essentially a European by that point. I'd say the same about Kubrick but the man was living in his own bubble. Polanski is Polish, and Scorsese & Coppola, while helping to define this period in American film, certainly bear traces of their cinematic/cultural heritage (pretty sure both are first or second generation American).

9 Americans though, and a Polish-directed Hollywood genre film. But it was a joke, and you're certainly right on all accounts.

Good list. Good choices.

I agree, it probably does win.
