Description: A director's "quintessential" movie isn't always the most interesting.

Rope (1948)
12345678910
  Hitchcock sold himself short when he wrote this off as, basically, a gimmick. It's an amazing technical achievement, that he made 10-minute shots cinematic. The script and acting are excellent too; the only flaw is a cop-out speech by Stewart at the end.
The Trial (1963)
12345678910
Not Rated
  Welles explores his surrealist side.
Nights of Cabiria (Criterion Collection) (1957)
12345678910
Not Rated
  If you want a narrative from a Fellini, you're in luck. This has it all.
Zelig (1983)
12345678910
  Distilled humor; supremely creative. The soundtrack alone is worth the rental.
High and Low (Criterion Collection) (1962)
12345678910
Not Rated
  Kurosawa's interpretation of an Ed McBain crime novel. Kurosawa usually means "The Seven Samurai," but this may be just as good.
The King of Comedy (1983)
12345678910
  Scorsese has a good sense of humor, and this one has more staying power than After Hours.
Day for Night (1973)
12345678910
  Truffaut puts himself on the line, and the result is just as memorable as The 400 Blows.
The Killing (Criterion) (1956)
12345678910
Not Rated
  Kubrick doing noir? It's just as worth seeing as 2001.
Broken Blossoms (1919)
12345678910
Not Rated
  Yes, it is better than Birth of a Nation and Intolerance.
McCabe & Mrs. Miller (1971)
12345678910
  It's surprising that this hasn't received as much attention as Nashville or MASH. Although it isn't exactly obscure, it's usually listed behind those two in Altman's works, when it should be first.
