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

average rating MPAA rating watch rent buy
Rope (1948)
  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)
Not Rated
  Welles explores his surrealist side.
Nights of Cabiria (Criterion Collection) (1957)
Not Rated
  If you want a narrative from a Fellini, you're in luck. This has it all.
Zelig (1983)
  Distilled humor; supremely creative. The soundtrack alone is worth the rental.
High and Low (Criterion Collection) (1962)
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)
  Scorsese has a good sense of humor, and this one has more staying power than After Hours.
Day for Night (1973)
  Truffaut puts himself on the line, and the result is just as memorable as The 400 Blows.
The Killing (Criterion) (1956)
Not Rated
  Kubrick doing noir? It's just as worth seeing as 2001.
Broken Blossoms (1919)
Not Rated
  Yes, it is better than Birth of a Nation and Intolerance.
McCabe & Mrs. Miller (1971)
  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.
