my personal favorites: not the rilms that i think are the best films ever made, but the films that i have a tendancy to watch over and over again, in no particular order:
GODFATHER 1 & 2
CHIMES AT MIDNIGHT
TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE
THE GREAT DICTATOR
CROSSFIRE (the lighting alone is a film school course)
MURDER MY SWEET
THE FUGITIVE (ford)
THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE
TOUCH OF EVIL
A PLACE IN THE SUN
as you can see i'm not really up on the directors that made films in europe, but i'm catching up. as of late, i have ventured into melville, visconti, truffaut, antonini, and more.
loooooved OBSSESSIONE. looooooooved DAY FOR NIGHT, like the SPINAL TAP of the movie business.
also loooooved FELINI'S ENTREVISTA, bitching, bitching, film/documentary/biography
