New York, I love you and Visions of Europe come to my mind immediately. I'll let you know when I think of something else.

Edit: and of course Four Rooms.

You mean films with multiple segments, each one directed by a different director (and/or multiple segments split among a few directors)?

Histoires extraordinaires (a.k.a. Spirits of the Dead)
Le plus vieux métier du monde
Quartet (1948)
Trio (1950)
Encore (1951)
O. Henry's Full House
Dead of Night
Aria (1987)
Lumière et compagnie

These are the ones I could remember right off the top of my head that I didn't see mentioned yet (if I missed their mention earlier, sorry!).

Or did you mean films with a single director that featured multiple, separate stories? (Like Woody Allen's Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Sex*.... or Ophuls' Le Plaisir?)

Coffee and Cigarettes and Night on Earth are definitely the latter, but I answered for the former as well. I'm not sure if it's called an anthology when it's by one director?

Any kind will do :lol:
I've seen Four Rooms multiple times and am fond of it, it's not on any good lists though
The other two have terrible reviews

On the Vogel list
L'amore in citta

On the Italian list
L'oro di Napoli (all the segments were directed by De Sica)

On the German and Harvard non-fiction lists
Deutschland im Herbst

On Golden Horse's Chinese list
Guang yin de gu shi (aka In Our Time)
Er zi da de wan ou (aka The Sandwich Man; also on Rosenbaum's list, but he specifies just the Hou Hsiao Hsien segment)

On Cahiers du cinema and Harvard non-fiction
Paris vu par... (Cahiers picked only Jean Rouch's segment, not the whole film)

I assume Il fiore delle mille e una notte is similar to the two Pasolini films already mentioned.

This is not on any official or unofficial lists, but it used to be on Doubling the Canon a few years ago
Lian hua jiao xiang qu

A couple of forum members like this one
Fimfarum Jana Wericha (all the segments directed by the same pair of directors)

I'm guessing you've already seen some well-regarded anime anthologies, like The Animatrix, Neo Tokyo, and Robot Carnival.

The Ten Minutes movies are highly uneven, but JLG's is great. I saw it again recently and it's quite moving. Other highlights, Kaurismaki's & Erice's.

If you include the ones that aren't on IMDb, then it's impossible to watch every animated short. There are millions.

The ones on lists are very finite, but a search for unwatched animated shorts with 25 votes and over 6.5/10 brings up another cool 1000 :thumbsup:

Was going to start a topic about this, so thanks for the list

Missing The Twilight Zone: The Movie which was I the reason I was going to start the topic

Some norwegian ones:
De 7 dødssyndene (The 7 deadly sins) - 7 segments
Folk flest bor i Kina (Most people live in China) - 8 segments
there are more, but I have to find my book :)

My 2nd antholgy in two days: From Beyond the Grave (1974)
- nah, not recommended. Roald Dahl wrote similar stories to these so much better, but I do see where King got the idea for Needful Things

One that we all forgot, even though it's on 3 official lists:
https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/how ... t+was+won/

Would "Sin City" be considered an anthology film?

No, Sin City would be like Pulp Fiction - that way to tell stories is called hyperlink cinema.

We're looking for seperate segments, usually just with a single (or none) combining factors. Like Four Rooms.
