Women In Love
Day Of The Locust
I was going to watch "Day of the Locust", but I was running out of space
Alex and the Gypsy
I saw this in the theater, and they handed us pamphlets with a glossary of the language the characters in the film were speaking.
A similar film you should see is the much more recent Alpha about the dawn of Man's relationship with dogs.
We got to see that at the Chicago International Film Festival with the director.
Another vote for Diva.
American Splendor (2003)
Whisky Galore! (1949)
The Brother From Another Planet (1984)
Without a doubt, Jack Nicholson in "The Last Detail" (1973). No one but Jack could have pulled this film off; great casting and directing (Hal Ashby).

"Attack". Robert Aldrich's highly personal film about military corruption and cowardice. Eddie Albert and Lee Marvin star in this interesting low-budget affair.
'Attack ' is somewhat flawed but a great movie! Would not want Eddie Albert's character leading me into battle anywhere or anytime.
One of my favourite movie scenes is in ' Quest for Fire.'
It' s the part where the main ' caveman' is at the other tribes ' camp and one of them starts making fire. He is totally gobsmacked by this.
One of my all-time favorite comedies is Tune in Tomorrow. Based on Mario Vargas-Llosa's novel Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter, Peter Falk plays Pedro Carmichael, a writer of radio dramas whose plots begin to reflect the lives of people around him--life imitates art and art imitates life. Keanu Reeves is actually pretty good as a young man smitten with an older woman (Barbara Hershey). Lots of other fun characters. The scripts are often punctuated by Pedro's apparent hatred for evil, malevolent Albanians. One of Falk's best comedic roles, even better than The In-Laws.
William Boyd adapted Vargas-Llosa's novel and placed it in 1950's New Orleans instead of Lima. He also wrote the novel A Good Man in Africa and adapted it into a screenplay--another very good movie.
Sunday in New York (1963)
Biggles: Adventures In Time
Rage- Glenn Ford
The Next Voice You Hear
80 Steps To Jonah
Weekend (Jean-Luc Godard, 1967)
Quiz Show (1994)
I get the feeling this one has largely been forgotten. Directed by Robert Redford and staring Ralph Fiennes and John Turturro, with a brilliant script, it really is a fantastic film all round.
Yes, very good movie. This one reminds me of "Bob Roberts" which has been ahead of its time.
Edit: (I think both films were on payTv the same time back then, that's why there is a connection for me)
Hard Eight (PT Anderson’s first film)
Three Colours Trilogy (Prefer Blue to all, but incredible films all around)
The Cook, The Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover (mesmerizing and recommended for HTphiles)
Barton Fink (Coen Bros. take in early Hollywood. So great)
The Killing (1956 Kubrick film that Tarantino all but ripper for Reservoir Dogs)
Payday -- great Rip Torn movie
Powwow Highway (1989)
Shows up multiple times a year on TCM-yes,usually Sunday-afternoons. But the next time is 1/24/20-a Fri. @ 11:45PM ET.
After watching "Amelie" on HBO last night, I'm pulling out "MicMacs" out of my DVD collection, since my wife has only seen it once, and doesn't really remember it.
