  1. The Apartment (1960)
  2. Dracula (1958)
  3. A Separation (2011)
  4. Los Enchiladas! (1999)
  5. Mildred Pierce (1945)
  6. Scarlet Street (1945)
  7. The Curse of Frankenstein (1957)
  8. Stalker (1979)
  9. The General (1926)
  10. Payday (1973)
  11. Our Hospitality (1923)
  12. Sherlock Jr. (1924)
  13. Frankenstein (1931)
  14. Soy Cuba (1964) - Do NOT miss this one! But first watch Cranes are Flying and Letter Never Sent to see the artistic progression of the director and cinematographer.
  15. Baron Prásil (1961) - Proto-Gilliam fun from Czechoslovakia

I think it´s a good idea

1. Sherlock Holmes : The Game of Shadows
2. Notes on a Scandal
3. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

(I watched the last part of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and it's such a great movie, Jack Nicholson is a really brilliant actor, but I'll have to watch it again from the beginning to count it in.)

I know!!.. it's 50/50 between A Better Life and Hachiko for me. I'm so glad I watched it home, I would've looked so ridiculous sobbing outside the theater.
