-The 4 Scream films is an interesting choice. I finally watched the first one for the first time a couple weeks ago. I'd love to hear what you love about them.
I wouldn't have ever thought to call Videodrome a unique pick, but I suppose I am the only forum user who has it as their #1. What can I say? Beyond being a brilliant mood piece, Videodrome is the single film out there that has the most to say about the relationship that we as viewers have with the films that we view.

Yes, I am big into paranoia thrillers; I have Don't Look Now and the Welles version of The Trial inside my top 20 too. I've seen 12 films by Pakula.

Recent Letterboxd reviews for all four Scream films: https://letterboxd.com/solh/films/diary ... es-craven/

I love how much each the films have to say about the movies, as well as the impact of cinema on the younger generations. The series gets progressively more interesting as it moves from film 2 to 4 and the fictitious Stab series becomes a bigger and bigger part of the narrative, with reconstructed sets, characters interacting with actors playing them and so forth. Each of the four films is incredibly funny and the character dynamics are amazing, especially the arcs of the Campbell, Cox and Arquette characters over the course of the franchise. Perhaps best of all though is how well each film works as a murder mystery, with lots of subtle clues dropped along the way, many of which only become noticeable after repeat viewings. Try rewatching Scream knowing who Ghostface is, and I guarantee you'll find it much more dynamic.

Was curious about my number of viewings for each...

1. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) --- 6 viewings
2. Festen (1998) --- 4 viewings
3. A Clockwork Orange (1971) --- 4+ viewings
4. 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) --- 4 viewings
5. From Dusk Till Dawn (1996) --- 8+ (impossible to know)
6. An American Werewolf in London (1981) --- 3 viewings
7. Le samouraï (1967) --- 4 viewings
8. Dawn of the Dead (1978) --- 3 viewings
9. Pulp Fiction (1994) --- 3+ viewings (impossible to know)
10. Sex, Lies, and Videotape (1989) --- 3 viewings

My most watched film is probably the first LOTR, which I think is somewhere in my top 15...

1. 31
2. 2400 feature films

... I am shocked that it's that few. I only just managed to convince my husband to agree to a third film night. If we hadn't been together for 12 years I think this number would be much larger.

Indeed. The more films I watch (and in some cases, rewatch), the more it changes. This has been the biggest film year of my life, and I expect that 2021 will be even more eventful. I have four major projects in mind for next year:

- finish seeing every film that interests me from 2020 releases (~80 films)
- clear out the DVR (~300 films) and keep it cleared out
- platinum as many official lists as possible
- watch the ~165 films in my physical collection that I am unsure about keeping because they might suck

It is extremely (stylistically) different from Touki Bouki, but thematically very similar. I love both for different reasons.

Which means I still am the person with the most gems to discover.
Honestly, for everyone worried about being mainstream ... we were discussing what movie to watch one evening with 5 friends and I proposed Fight Club as it is hard to dislike for many non-cinephiles. It was vetoed out because it was made in the 20th century. Thus so far for us being mainstream, maybe to some people on the forum but to the general public, definitely not.

1. Idi i smotri (1985)
2. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)
3. Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966)
4. Naked (1993)
5. Persona (1966)
6. 12 Angry Men (1957)
7. Das weiße Band - Eine deutsche Kindergeschichte (2009)
8. There Will Be Blood (2007)
9. Jagten (2012)
10. Werckmeister harmóniák (2000)

:lol:
At least there's a clear and simple line for the Gen Z fellas.


It's less funky than some of us may think though: I'm 34 now. When I was your age (... (D:) !!), the equivalent would have been to propose a film made around 1989-1991; which would have felt "old" to a regular mainstream audience. Or, if the movie was known & popular enough, people already knew it more than enough from other viewings and airings on TV. The choice would have led to something made around the year 2000.

When I'm around the film pleb (e.g. normal people), they want to watch and have recommended new stuff. Like, new. Released not too long ago to streaming services; seldomly more than 2-3 year old. 5 years wouldn't count as new anymore. 2012 would mark a line (the date, not the movie (pity)).

Lot's of interesting top 10 lists in this thread, but I can't figure out how to go about one of my own.

Do I try and list what I think have been or are the 10 most important films in my life, or those I have considered the best at any given point in time? And how different would my determinations be if I were to watch the same films today that I loved years ago? Moreover, how much are my impressions colored by a kind of nostalgia for a past experience that may no longer be valid apart from my attachment to that sense of my former self?

If I consider my life as a film lover, my favorites at any point in time are those that have made the biggest impression on me at a given point, at least as I remember them, yet "time" (as a point of reference that also provides context) is always changing, just as I am, and the only "favorites" I feel certain about are the most recent ones I have seen, though even then my preference for them is probably somewhat contextual.

Given all of that, trying to settle on ten seems almost impossible to me, and depending the frame of reference I use, I would probably come up with a somewhat different group of ten each time (didn't I read somewhere that even Sight & Sound is planning to go to a "top 50" for their next major poll in 2022?).

What would be easier for me would be to go back through my life (since childhood) and try to remember my favorite (or most influential) films during given short periods of my life, but then I would surely hit 10 before I reached the end of high school, and my love of cinema really took off (I am now 60, and my taste has changed quite a bit over the years, even as I can make out a fairly clear path between now and then that has much to do with my own personal development and life experiences).

Pretty much all of my most memorable film experiences have been in a movie theater, and the last one of these that absolutely wowed me was when I saw Holy Motors in 2013. I’ve seen a lot of very good films since then, but that one would definitely be among my current too 10

I haven't compiled a top 10 list for some years now, and I'd say that it's as well a very liquid thing, though a few titles are rock steady. I'm keeping it features only. A top 10 list is only about exclusion, so remember the 300 other films, which could have made the cut as well (nothing Japanese, only one woman, no silent film, no campy stuff, Hong, Sternberg, Lynch, Fulton, Bresson, Akerman, Schanelec, Cronenberg, Marker, Ozu, Petzold, Grandrieux etc. is not represented - and you could on!)

... but I like my list as it is now:

1. Зеркало / Mirror (Andrei Tarkovskij, 1975)
2. Beau Travail (Claire Denis, 1999)
3. All That Heaven Allows (Douglas Sirk, 1955)
4. 不散 / Goodbye, Dragon Inn (Tsai Ming-Liang, 2003)
5. สัตว์ประหลาด / Tropical Malady (Apichatpong Weerasethakul, 2004)
6. The Tree of Life (Terrence Malick, 2011)
7. Céline (Jean-Claude Brisseau, 1992)
8. Juventude Em Marcha / Colossal Youth (Pedro Costa, 2006)
9. माटी मानस / Mind of Clay (Mani Kaul, 1985)
10. A Comédia de Deus / God's Comedy (João César Monteiro, 1995)

Age: 25
Films seen: aprox. 3000

Haven't seen much anime in a couple of years, but I'm interested in the Evangelion films and series, as I see it mentioned a lot by people and sources who often share my taste in visual media. Is it possible to watch End of Evangelion separately without having watched the series beforehand?

Never heard of this one before. Thanks. Gotta watch it soon, seems very interesting. Actually your list is among the most interesting of the lot. Also reminded me of Die Letzte Brücke, Iphigenia and The Deluge, which I should prioritize watching. Only seen 3 from your list, but those 3 are big favorites.

Thanks! You've got a great list too.

I would urge against watching End of Evangelion without seeing the show beforehand, as you'd be missing the narrative context that leads up to it as well as (more significantly) the emotional context. It primarily is set after the events of the show. I don't think it'd be impossible to appreciate/get a lot out of without having seen the show, but I think that'd be far from ideal.

Sat down on Christmas Eve and made a new top 100. I imagine it will look very different a year from now, but it's certainly the best list I've ever had and very accurate to my taste.

There's one scene in that film that haunted me for days. I was so shaken by
Spoiler
Sandrine Bonnaire's suicide
that I was depressed for a while. I have to give a high ranking to a film that powerful. I have a few Pialat films left to see, but I'd be very surprised if they top it.

this one is the second part of a trilogy in literary terms. Would i have to find the first part, or filmically does it start at part 2?

1. Le soulier de satin / The Satin Slipper (1985 - Manoel de Oliveira)
2. The Tree of Life (2011 - Terrence Malick)
3. Limite (1931 - Mario Peixoto)
4. Monsieur Verdoux (1947 - Charles Chaplin)
5. Viskningar och rop / Cries and Whispers (1972 - Ingmar Bergman)
6. The Saga of Anatahan (1953 - Josef von Sternberg)
7. Les Maîtres du temps (1982 - René Laloux)
8. Les enfants du paradis / Children of Paradise (1945 - Marcel Carné)
9. Peau d'âne / Once Upon a Time (1970 - Jacques Demy)
10. Vertigo (1958 - Alfred Hitchcock)
I've seen 6 of your top 10, a record for me! They're mostly shared favorites as well.

Did you ever watch Hou's The Assassin? I'm bad at giving recommendations, but there you go.

A lie ain't a 'side of the story.' It's just a lie.

You'll start hearing about it soon enough. The film is out and about and it's the kind that will (deservedly) get some hype over the coming weeks/months.
