This is not a list of my favorites or the most admired, but mostly B&W movies that I watched recently.
Forgot to mention:
Mr. Hulot's Vacation
The Ladykillers (1955)
Breakfast at Tiffany's
Beauty and the Beast (1946)
Paths of Glory
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
Yes, Godfather III was by very far the weakest link; Sofia Coppola by name.
I am indeed a Kubrick fan and very much like Woody Allen, although Sleeper, Bananas, Annie Hall, Hannah and her Sisters, and perhaps Stardust memories and Zelig are preferred over the newer. Zelig is the only movie I every saw on opening day.
One thing about great movies is that I remember them so well, I don't like to wear them out by watching too often. For example, two of greatest hits are The Seven Samurai and The Third Man, which I see only once every 5 or 8 years.
There are a number of movies I've not run across that I'd like to see again, for example, Truffaut: L'Enfant Savauge, Fellini: Amacord, Visconti: Death in Venice.
So many movies, so little time!

- I enjoyed Robert Mitchum answering to Kirk Douglas, not many have the gravitas for that role over Mitchum - PhilJ 17:25:12 09/22/18 (0)
