    It’s a fantastic, and quite heart-wrenching film

    Oldboy.

    all quiet on the western front. WWI from the German troop perspective. Very powerful. Two versions, both are good and the colour one has Ernest borgnine in it

    +1 oldboy

    I’ve never seen it. We are discussing it at work and everyone is shocked.

    Shocked you’ve never seen it?

    The Offence

    and for a bit of ‘fun’, try; Hell Drivers

    Oldboy – tick.

    If you want a proper anti-war film; Cross of Iron or Savior. Savior will never be popular. A horrid, nasty and depressing film.

    I’ve never seen Alien.

    Schindler’s List is incredible though.

    On a war front, have you seen ‘Flags of Our Fathers’ and ‘Letters from Iwo Jima’?

    Seen both and didn’t like them personally.

    If you want to see a beautiful and sad film thats not all fighting:

    I think this critic says it all:

    Tender, melancholy, suspenseful and, finally, uplifting.

    And then read the book by Thomas Keneally

    Hidden? Schindler’s List ?

    I don’t understand the question!

    Into the wild just made me angry. What a cock that bloke was.

    Taxi – the French version of the film. Mindless fun that should be watched.
    Delicatessen – French again, also subtitled. The number of scenes in that film referenced since are incredible.
    Restless Natives. It deserved to be bigger than Gregorys Girl.
    Lawrence of Arabia. Should be watched if you haven’t.

    On the 2nd world war theme, Downfall is a great film.

    I thought Schindler’s list was an OK film. If it wasn’t a true story it wouldn’t be any where near as popular.

    Have made a Paul Vanhoven Season for myself on Lovefilm, not seen any of his pre-hollywood films.

    really rate his films, so hope his early films will be as interesting.

    anyone recommend anything in particular.

    Delicatessen

    – this is weird for me. I utterly love Amelie. Magical, makes me grin and cry with happiness yet Delicatessen leaves me totally cold. Weird.

    Schindler’s List is a must watch imho

    another vote for Restless Natives

    The Warriors (1979)

    AMELIE

    Avalon

    Maybe not a hidden/missed film but, American Weirwolf in London is worth adding to your list if you have not seen it yet Hora.

    Anything by Alfred Hitchcock ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Jumping on the French band wagon, it’s got to be La HAine.
    and a tick for Delicatessen from too.

    I’ve never watched The Godfather, Empire’s greatest film of all time.

    Also haven’t seen Fight Club, Singin’ in the Rain or GoodFellas from the top ten

    La Haine. Agree. Awesome. Watched it when I was young, still fresh and vivid now.

    Now I love great films, this seems to have passed me by.

    Is it a classic? (This is a rhetorical question?)

    Anything else? I’m off to HMV tonight to pick it up/watch.

    The Lives of Others.

    Rightly won loads of awards in 2006; sat in the pub for ages, just thinking, after watching it at the Cameo (Edinburgh). Nothing like the viewing that Schindler’s had though.
    Just don’t read-up on it first, save the surprise (or lack thereof)

    I watched The Piano the other day for the first time

    Thought it was pretty good too

    hora
    Member

    Mrshora badgered me non-stop to go and see Piano at the cinema when it first came out. I gave in (thinking arty-crap) and she was utterly bored whilst I sat there in love with the film. That was the start of my education ๐Ÿ˜€ Come to think of it, that was my film-ground zero.

    Kung Fu Hustle
    like no other Kung Fu film you’ve ever seen
    one of my most favourite films

    The Talented Mr Ripley is one of those films I can watch whenever it’s on TV. Beautifully made and really quite horrible by equal measures.

    Kung Fu Hustle- Stephen Chow, I love his 007 rip off and rip off of God of Gamblers (God of Cookery). class.

    On the 2nd world war theme, Downfall is a great film.

    I really MUST watch it sometime soon – bought it on DVD an age ago but never got round to watching it.

    All Quiet on the Western Front – read the book thinking it was a real account. Was very disappointed when I found out it was a novel. ๐Ÿ™

    On Downfall, I didn’t like it at the cinema but Traudl Junge makes her an easier character to like (and understand to a degree). The film is slightly depressing which succeeds interms of the acting (yes I know its a bit doom and gloom etc) but the acting/cinematography really works).

    Not a fan of Wong Kar-Wai’s other films but how about ChungKing Express?
