With one or two exceptions, you are all numbskulls who dwell on Hollywood fodder as if that were the only cinema that ever existed.


big grin

Here is a list, not of my five favourite films, but of five favourite films.

Road to Perdition
Nikita
Amelie
OHMSS
Kill Bill volume 1

But I could equally have said

Once Upon a Time in America

if you break it down by genre and there is only 5 choices you leave a whole section of filmmaking out. But if you don't break it down by genre you also leave too much out.

What I am saying is what does KING KONG have to do with 12 ANGRY MEN and what does 12 ANGRY MEN have to do with SINGING IN THE RAIN.

With one or two exceptions, you are all numbskulls who dwell on Hollywood fodder as if that were the only cinema that ever existed. HOW can you leave out Bergman?

My absolute favourite Bergman film is CASABLANCA.



I keep reading about the making of CASABLANCA, how everyone was breaking up laughing at the ridiculousness of the plot. And, that several different endings were filmed.

In all of these so-called "special edition" releases of this movie, on various formats, how come no one has thought to include any of these deleted outtakes?

Wonder if they still exist....

This list could change when I remember some other film, but for now I'd say these.

Cool Hand Luke

TO MGH- NIGHT OF THE DEMON-58- it would be up there on my horror genre list too.

One of my favorite moving-going experiences, was seeing this film (CURSE OF THE DEMON) during its original US release, on a double-bill with THE REVENGE OF FRANKENSTEIN. Actually, a rare case of a double-feature being the same genre. More often than not, double and triple features showed films from varying genres, to attract the largest audience. It was also rare that we saw a double-feature of films from the same release year. Often the second film was an older one.
