The Battle of Algiers (Criterion Collection) (1966)
Not Rated
  This tense drama of escalating violence plays like a really disturbing horror movie. Each retaliatory attack is more gruesome than the last. It makes you feel the hatred and vindictiveness on both sides. This film has a way of getting under your skin and sticking with you.
The Night of the Hunter (Criterion) (1955)
Not Rated
  An extremely suspenseful and stylish serial killer movie.
The Pawnbroker (1964)
Not Rated
  I was already a Sidney Lumet fan before I discovered that I hadn't seen his best movie yet.
Dog Day Afternoon (1975)
  Another better-than-I-expected film I saw during my Sidney Lumet kick.
Lenny (1974)
  A well composed biopic of comedian Lenny Bruce, Bob Fosse proved to be as innovative a film director as he was a dance choreographer. Milos Forman could've taken some tips from this when he made Man on the Moon.
Funny Girl (1968)
  An interesting contrast to Lenny; both the Bruce and the Brice biopics are great in their own way. Hoffman created a realistic impression of Bruce. Streisand throws reality out the window, and an accurate portrayal of Fanny Brice with it. Instead, it's a fun and campy vehicle for Streisand to show off her own talents.
Evolution: Darwin's Dangerous Idea (2001)
Not Rated
  Does for biology what Cosmos did for astronomy; it changes your perspective of your place in the grand scheme of things.
My So Called Life - Complete Series (Disc 1 of 5) (1994)
  TV rarely gets this good. The pilot stands on it's own as an insightful teen drama every bit as sophisticated as its big screen equivalents. But the whole series is remarkably well written.
Shaun of the Dead (2004)
  Most dark-comedies rely heavily on crass gross-out jokes. This one does too. But it's also resourceful enough to pack a diverse bag of spare gags just in case. It would be laugh-out-loud funny even if nobody lost any body parts.
The American Film Theatre: Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris (1975)
  Jacques Brel's songs are translated into English and performed in a series of MTV-meets-Broadway vignettes. It works better than it should, but it might not be for everybody.
