@edgarblythe,
Those are among my favorites too, for similar reasons (although I liked Who's Afraid on its own).

I also can't just pick three.
I remember just loving Seven Samurai.. but also Ikiru - very different movies by the same director.
Bertolucci's Besieged - I'll add that.

That's three for today only.

@tsarstepan,
Robert Towne, such a screenwriter. I got to meet him once (in a medical situation). That made my week.

Why did Toy Story not make your list, Osso?

@hawkeye10,
I loved and saw several times, The Big Chills' seeming forerunner, Return of the Secaucus Seven, by John Sayles.

@Green Witch,
GW? Have you seen the little known prequel to A Room With A View called A Closet Without A Vista?

It stars Hannah Montana as a young and perky Charlotte Bartlett!
The entire movie takes place inside this armoire:

I had the privilege of meeting Lindsay Anderson in 1978. He was in Chicago to accept a special lifetime achievement award at our International Film Festival.

@ossobuco,
Let me first warn you and others who have never seen it that Clockwork Orange is a difficult to watch film because of some particularly violent scenes in the beginning. Ultraviolence et al....

@ehBeth,
ehBeth?

The director of Les Triplettes de Belleville will be releasing a new film this year under the title, The Illusionist:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0775489/
A Christmas release date for the US, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0775489/releaseinfo
Because I love Les Triplettes de Belleville so much, L'illusionniste is one of my most anticipated films this year.

@tsarstepan,
I wonder if that will be shown at TIFF - if so, that's something I'd book a day off work for.

@tsarstepan,
That's why I never saw it. (er, sorry for the missed 'w')

I'd be better off reading Burgess, whose commentary I used to listen to re articles, whatever (all a long time ago).

But, this brings up, yet again, an all time favorite tv series of mine, Cities (or some similar title). It was on the Discovery Channel when it first started. Featured Burgess, Ustinov, Greer, Gould, and others on their favorite cities.

The book, Design of Cities, was written by Edmund Bacon - a must have book for me. (Yes, a relative of Kevin's, grandfather, I think).

Beth -

I adored the last two, appreciated the first. Of the three - Big Night.
Talk about loving a movie.
