    Please do, wonder what you come up with ;)

    Basically, all Tarkovsky movies should be here, brilliant director. Films are sometimes hard to come by, but can be found online for free!

    (Edit: I understand his films have all been restored lately, woohoo!)

    Solaris, of course, see it in Russian (with subs),

    Of course :)

    I'll put the trailers in:





    Thanks Al,

    Great movie, it's on my watchlist. I'm also hoping you'll have some great French cinema in your backlog as well. This is one of my favourites:

    Les Intouchables



    Or this, so many great French movies to choose from

    Le Grand Bleu

    Superb movie this. Vincent Cassel's greatest performance.
    @pa5t1s Do you agree?

    With subtitles of course. Always liked seeing movies in their OG version with subtitles.
    Mesrine? What do you think? Have you seen it? If not, why not? :rolleyes:

    ofc, I saw it ! it's quite a true and unbiased piece of History (the 70's?) Actors are believable and not over-playing.

    Awesome thread indeed and your movie recommendations are stellar - a post with Kubrick is a great post (just the other day saw a documentary about his personal assistant. It's called S Is for Stanley. :cool:

    I have a few of my own. So here goes:

    If you want science fiction and you already saw 2001, please do watch Solaris. It's a movie directed by Tarkovsky and it was released in 1972. If you can, please do watch it in the Criterion Collection edition as the visuals continue to impress. If you like that one, go watch Stalker next (Stalker is a tough one) (Edit: Just saw Stalker was already mentioned :sweatsmile:).





    I'm looking at my shelf here and I can also recommend Dreams from Kurosawa. A lot of people focus on Seven Samurai, but Dreams should not be overlooked.

    8½ should be obligatory as it gives you a masterclass in cinema and here's an oddball: L'avventura from Antonioni. All these movies, I think, will make your time homebound a little better. :cool:

    Holy moly, your taste in movies is impeccable. :hearteyes:

    Have you watched "12 Angry Men"?

    No, I'm not talking about the OnePlus forums. :rolleyes: It's a movie directed by Sidney Lumet. :cool:

    The old 1957 film about a jury?

    I have, on TV once, I think more than 20 years ago.

    There is also a newer version from 1997.

    I didn't know there was a remake :eek: But loved the original, in black and white. Also some 20 years at least since I've seen it, but on a PC not TV

    Right, let's movie on. Michael Caine is one of my favourite actors.

    Many youngsters will know him as Alfred in the Batman movies, or maybe from Inception (that movie will be addressed sometime soon)

    Here are three very different movies, some of his best, IMHO.

    Get Carter (1971)

    London gangster avenges his brother who got murdered. It's a gangster movie that's as gritty as it gets really, no Hollywood glamour, Newcastle in 1970 is exactly the opposite.

    Do not accidentally watch the 2000 movie with Sylvester Stallone.


    Educating Rita (1983)
    I love this movie for its storyline, Working class meets Upper class. It's witty dialogues are priceless, also, great acting, Julie Walters even manages to blow Caine out of the water...


    The man who would be king (1975)
    Great adventure movie. One of the "must watch" classics. also with Sean Connery, directed by John Huston. Very cheesy trailer I'm afraid. 'Nuff said...

    Yep, I was talking about the original version. I didn't know there was a newer version of the film. o_O

    Honestly, it was a waste of a title. It should have been: "12 Angriest Men". Oh the marketing slogan? Glad you asked: "This time they are out of the room". This is so stupid, sorry about that. Back to the movies. :D

    Don't know if you guys know/like Noah Baumbach, but I watched and can recommend two of his movies:

    The Squid and the Whale


    Frances Ha (you really should see this one)


    Yes, he was also the writer/director of A Marriage Story (the movie with Kylo Ren indeed). It's a good movie too, but it's probably you already saw it by now. :cool:

    Another Jim Jarmusch gem. Broken Flowers.
    The always wonderful Bill Murray searches for the son he never knew he had. I also discovered the joys of The Golden Age of Ethiopian Music through this film. The soundtrack is just superb.

    It is a great movie indeed. Also, pretty cool seeing a Jarmusch mentioned that's not Coffee and Cigarettes, hah. :D

    It's easier this way. I recommend these movies:

    CheetosCriterion.png

    That's my CC - CC as in Criterion Collection not Credit Card, calm down bots :eek:). I also have a few good ones from another company called Indicator (UK). The Last Detail, The Big Heat, Fat City, 10 Rillington Place o_O, for example. :cool:
