  • Terrence Malick's filmography. Select cuts I'd say The New World and Knight of Cups. Absolutely gorgeous visual poetry and should be seen by everyone.

    Michael Mann's Miami Vice from 2006. Incredible atmosphere and so damn cool - unlike any "action" film you've ever seen.

    Alain Resnais' Last Year at Marienbad. My favorite French New Wave film and one that will really fuck with you. Really innovative for the time and holds up super well.

    Michaelangelo Antonioni's Blow Up. Just a classic and cool af. Features an unassuming cameo from Jimmy Page before he was in Zeppelin.



  • I don't have specific ones cause Im not sure our film tastes are the same (I prefer Cowboy, Gangster, and really campy horror movies), but Hulu Premium has a good chunk of the Criterion collection (lots of great film from all over the world), and its fantastic. I think you'd like a good bit of their French selection. But there's great English movies too.



  • @WillyHolly dont worry. this thread is meant for everyone -- any and all classics



  • american beauty is my fave film of all time

    repo man
    beyond the valley of the dolls
    dr. strangelove
    suspiria
    re-animator
    scanners

    i got lots of films to recommend but i think this link does the job



  • So manyyyyy but some that come to mind immediately:

    Taxi Driver, The Godfather (1 and 2), Goodfellas, Pulp Fiction/Reservoir Dogs, Grave of the Fireflies, Oldboy, Infernal Affairs.

    Recently watched Boogie Nights for the first time and I absolutely love it. La Haine is a harrowing and beautifully shot French film featuring Vincent Cassel that I highly recommend.

    I've not seen this one yet and am planning on it soon, but Seven Samurai is supposed to incredible.

    omg pulp is amazing
    I STARTED BOOGIE NIGHTS but i didnt wana watch a movie about porn :///



  • @toys-r-sus lol you should watch blue is the warmest color



  • @toys-r-sus Hahaha totally get it, but Paul Thomas Anderson deals with the topic in such an exuberant, lighthearted way (for the most part), and it's a really good use of an ensemble cast, with very great storytelling and acting. Finish iiittttt!



  • @Joyce omg i will tmrw thanx for motivating
    <3



  • Donnie Darko!

    Anything by Tarantino, Kubrick, Anderson, Nolan, Miyazaki, and Hitchcock.



  • @yungkage That's a gorgeous film.



  • @Joyce wholeheartedly agree



  • @Joyce I've never seen a film use color psychology to that degree. It'll always be one of my favorite films.



  • The Man With No Name 3peat classic cowboy, Squint Eastwood at his coolest. Watch The Seven Samurai before the cowboy remake comes out. Lady Snowblood is hilarious and awesome. Re-Animator is great, full frontal nudity too.

    Akira is fantastic, in fact i could make a list out of just animated features. Grave of Fireflies, all of Miyazaki's work.

    Enter The Void takes some stamina and its jarring, but I suggest it as an experience. Also if you like getting high. If you watch it high, its intense.

    Once upon A Time in America is the perfect Gangster movie. Its also like 4 hours long, so...yeah.



  • I know Kubrick is pretty easy to choose for classic films, also his fans do receive a lot of hate because it's a "basic" choice, but you can't deny greatness.

    I think Full Metal Jacket is my favorite of his and also the best war film I have ever witnessed. I've watched it plenty of times sober but just recently the message hit extremely hard.



  • I've heard Star Wars is good.
