Description: Some of these films are not as fresh in my mind as when I first viewed them. This is my first list and these are some of the highlights.

average rating MPAA rating watch rent buy
The Puppet Films of Jiri Trnka (1949-1965)
Not Rated
  Beautiful Stop Motion. Highly reccomended.
Andrei Rublev (Criterion Collection) (1966)
  Tarkovsky is probably my favorite director. His thematicism is all encompassing. Like Bach's counterpoint his motifs remain potent, are never lost and resolve into the Eternal.
The Qatsi Trilogy (Criterion) (Disc 1 of 3): Koyaanisqatsi - Life Out of Balance (1982)
Not Rated
  Koyaanisqatsi is my favorite out of the sequels that followed. However Baraka was a good watch as well.
American Psycho (Uncut Verison) (2000)
  This is a great film. Especially, when you entertain the social-political implications. Christian Bale is superb.
Eclipse Series 33 - Up All Night with Robert Downey Sr. (Criterion) (Disc 2 of 2): Putney Swope / Two Tons of Turquoise to Taos Tonight (1969)
  This was thoroughly entertaining. I can't honestly say I understood all the references but it was a laugh.
Can't You Hear the Wind Howl? (1997)
Not Rated
  Very enjoyable history on Robert Johnson. It was amazing to hear how those early blues pioneers made ends meet.
Ordet (Criterion Collection) (1955)
  This was my first Dreyer film and-WOW, what an impression it made: It's refreshing to see religion and the religious portrayed with reverence rather than the perverted and hypocritical stero-type of main stream.
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (Criterion Collection) (1998)
  Unfortunately my knowledge of Terry Gilliam's creative brilliance is only somewhat recent. Even though I ,unknowingly, have been seen several of his works,directorial/films, since early Monty Python television. Ahh, the injustice.
Kill Your Idols (2003)
Not Rated
  This film is especially great for creative individuals wanting inspiration form those who have forged their own path and remained true to their creative vision. I rented it because of some of the credited interviews with Sonic Youth et al..
The Girl from Monday (2005)
Not Rated
  Hal Hartley was one of my early Indie influences that really piqued my interest in independent film. I would reccomend just about anything he has ever done.
F For Fake (Criterion Collection) (1973)
Not Rated
  Very provocative documentary ? Magic Show ? Slight of reel ? Hopefully it gets you asking the right questions.
The Illustrated Man (1969)
  Saw this film on TV as a child an loved it but certainly didn't understand some of the themes. Saw it again last year and-NOSTALGIA, got it.
The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (Criterion Collection) (1972)
  This was my first Luis Bunuel film and I really enjoyed it but trying to wrap my head around it did hurt. I knew what to expect though. He came highly reccomended.
Beastie Boys Anthology (Criterion Collection) (Disc 1 of 2) (2000)
Not Rated
  What can I say ? It's the B Boys ! Was sort of a shock to see them on criterion label though. haha
Phantom of the Paradise (1974)
  Saw this DePalma gem as a child as a double feature with Rocky Horror Picture Show. Didn't quite understand RH at the time but loved Phantom.
Voyage in Time (1982)
  A MUST SEE for any devout Tarkovsky fans. Some great in depth interviews with Andrei. I must have copy.
The Mystery of Picasso (1956)
Not Rated
  I rented this just so I could see Picasso in action. It was well worth my time.
Melies the Magician (1896-1912)
  A MUST SEE for independent and Black & White / silent film enthusiasts alike. This is where cinema began.
Artists of the 20th Century: Andy Warhol
  Can't really call myself an authentic art critic of any sort but I enjoyed watching this. I am sure if I had read a good biography about Warhol I would have something valuble to say.
The Bicycle Thief (1948)
Not Rated
  This was reccomended by a co-worker durring a discussion about classic European films. I reccomended Cinema Paridisio.
Alphaville (Criterion Collection) (1965)
Not Rated
  A good friend of mine always raves about Godard. I enjoyed this and of course loved the anti-utopian themes.
Un Chien Andalou (1928)
  Visually compelling. Though I can't say I embrace the philosophies of Bunuel I certainly do love his aesthetic style.
The Brothers Quay Collection (2000)
Not Rated
  These guys are simply AMAZING. A MUST see for any stop-motion enthusiasts.
The Book of Life (1998)
Not Rated
  Been a Hal Hartley fan for quite some time but failed to keep up on some of his recent films. Enjoyed this.
Gimme Shelter (Criterion Collection) (1970)
  Heard about this. Read about this. Finally saw it. It's so great to see the unification of the 60's movement and the Stones in their early days live. Unfortunately this event had some downfalls.
Lyrical Nitrate & The Forbidden Quest (2004)
Not Rated
  I would have to agree with the review that said the Forbidden Quest was much more compelling to watch than Lyrical Nitrate but there are some beautiful clips durring the first feature.
Hearts and Minds (Criterion Collection) (1974)
  I am not very knowledgeable about the Vietnam war but I love watching old footage of events like this. Like reading history it's always good to compare that which has past to modern times and ask the all important question: Has anything really changed ?
LoudQUIETloud: A Film About the Pixies (2006)
Not Rated
  What can I say ? PIXIES !!!
Ivan the Terrible I (Criterion Collection) (Disc 1 of 2) (1944)
  This is the first film of Eisenstein I have seen. Another aesthetic genius like Tarkovsky. The bonus disc is also a must especially for film students/enthusiasts alike.
Fellini Satyricon (1969)
  Felt like I was really there deep in debauchery.
Metropolis (The Complete Restored Edition) (1927)
Not Rated
  Saw this just recently. Absolutely loved it. The music score was also a nice addition.
Au hasard Balthazar (Criterion Collection) (1966)
  Beautifully tragic. Learned about Bresson through Tarkovsky. A contrast of the capabilities of humanity.
The Five Obstructions (2003)
  It's great watching how these obstructions force oneself into newfound improvisations.
Henri Langlois: Phantom of the Cinematheque (2004)
  A MUST see for early to mid 1900's film enthusiasts. Henri was a monolith and purveyor of the independent film philosophy from which we still reap today.
Masters of Russian Animation Vol. 4
Not Rated
  The Russians always know how to serve it up. All the animation is really good but with story lines etc,, I favoured about half of them.
Faust (1926)
Not Rated
  A MUST see for black & white / silent film enthusiasts. The music score is equally incredible. This film is potent.
Akira Kurosawa's Dreams (1990)
  Great film. I was espeically moved by the orchard sequence. Of course this is the Master AKIRA.
Henry Fool (1997)
  Classic Hartley ! He's the master of concise profundity.
