But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

12. #914 The Docks of New York (1928, Josef von Sternberg): 8.5 - I saw a special screening of this with live music by the Metropole Orchestra with a score composed from music of Raymond Scott.
13. #571 Rekopis znaleziony w Saragossie [The Saragossa Manuscript] (1965, Wojciech Has): 8.0
14. #652 Sanatorium pod klepsydra [The Hourglass Sanatorium] (1973, Wojciech Has): 8.0 - This has two things going very well for it. Firstly this is an absolutely amazingly beautiful movie. Secondly because of the constant movement with the encounters seamlessly flowing into each other and the protagonist unquestioning undergoing it all, it made it easier for me to also accept the lack of any conventional narrative logic and just go with the emotional flow of the journey.

15. #825 Crash (1996, David Cronenberg): 7.8 - I had the immense pleasure to see this with a live score performed by the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra with a little introduction from composer Howard Shore himself. The movie itself is intriguing take on the appeal of car crashes and the contradiction between the artificialness of death by crashes and human passion and sex.
