We haven't done this in 2 years. Here's the original thread:

Apocalypse Now (Coppola, 1979)
Vertigo (Hitchcock, 1958)
The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (Powell & Pressburger, 1943)
Once Upon A Time In America (Leone, 1984)
Days of Heaven (Malick, 1978)
Reds (Beatty, 1981)
The English Patient (Minghella, 1996)
Barton Fink (Coens, 1991)

I've seen almost all of your top ten, now, Laz. Reds is the only one I haven't...

Four from Lance.

All from Oregoropa.

I can't believe it's already been two years since that thread. I'll be back, but I'm not sure anything has changed.

Based solely on what I'm most inclined to sit down, watch and enjoy on multiple levels based on my current tastes, with very little nostalgia:

1. The Godfather
2. Pulp Fiction
3. The Graduate
4. Casablanca
5. Psycho
6. Sunset Blvd.
7. Paris, Texas
8. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
9. Unforgiven
10. The Shining

11. Tokyo Story
12. American Beauty
13. Dog Day Afternoon
14. The Lives of Others
15. Network
16. Citizen Kane
17. Apocalypse Now
18. The Conversation
19. Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf
20. Hannah and Her Sisters

It HURT to make this list. I love way too many movies.

And I need to be honest with myself and admit that Coppola is one of my favorite directors. Never noticed that happen. He's just released a lot of garbage over the years so he tends to slip down my list, whereas the more consistent Lumet and Leone remain higher in my estimations despite not appearing here much at all.

I don't know if I can bring myself to change my top 10. I hate feeling like I should be embarrassed about my top 6, but the fact is, I do a little bit, but I still feel as strongly about them as ever, so, what the hell, they stay.

1. American Beauty
2. The Shawshank Redemption
3. Forrest Gump
4. Return of the Jedi
5. Empire Strikes Back
6. Casablanca
7. Spirited Away
8. Blue Velvet
9. The Prestige
10. Boyz in the Hood
 
11. The Seventh Seal
12. Harakiri
13. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
14. The Elephant Man
15. The Royal Tenenbaums
16. Unforgiven
17. The Life Aquatic
18. Rashomon
19. Se7en
20. Life & Death of Colonel Blimp
 
21. The Green Mile
22. For A Few Dollars More
23. Almost Famous
24. Double Indemnity
25. In Bruges



I changed one movie in the top ten.

Interesting that Scorsese hasn't popped up more. He's one of my favorite directors, and one of the most consistent of the greats, but like Welles, doesn't quite have a title that reaches my upper echelon.

Even my favorite of his films (Casino) isn't on this 70 film shortlist I have lying around. But that's because the shortlist is old and I haven't been good at updating it. I already realize my list is lacking City of God, The New World and Cinema Paradiso.

Gangs of New York is my favorite, believe it or not. I don't think it's his best work (Raging Bull, then probably The Age Of Innocence, for starters), but it has more standout scenes than anything else, so I enjoy revisiting it the most.

I think if you expanded my list to 100, or even as much as 75, he'd have more titles on it than any other director.

Banshun
Blade Runner

Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Mulholland Dr.
Persona

Mildly surprised that I've seen 8 of your films, djerdap. Still haven't seen Come and See or Viridiana. I know I've been kicking around the idea of seeing the former for a while now, but the time hasn't presented itself.

Also I think it's great that Mulholland Dr. and Persona are both on your list. They have a lot in common. 3 Women and Celine And Julie Go Boating also seem to take inspiration from Persona in some ways. You could make one hell of a marathon out of those four.

Nice list. Four of these would definitely be in my top ten (Blade Runner, Mulholland Dr., Persona and Stalker).

Why is that? I've been a big movie buff all my life (it's basically how I learned English for one), but I'm hardly that "avant-garde" or left-field.

I did a Persona-3 Women-Mulholland Dr. marathon years ago. It was fascinating to see the similarities and the differences between the three approaches. I've seen Celine and Julie a couple of months after that.
