^oh absolutely!

another of my favorites of Julie Andrews is Darling Lily. it's not as well known as some of her other films, but she is such a treat in it. (and yes, she sings in it as well!)

Antonioni's L'Avventura : IMO one of the top 5 films ever made, Antonioni treats w/ one of the biggest problems of humanity: the lack of communication. The photography is impecable and Monica Vitti looks more beautiful than ever.

filmsufi

Almodovar's Volver : One of the best spanish movies ever made, it's thrilling, it's funny, it's sad, it's surprising, it's amazing. Penelope Cruz best actuation ever (she was even nominated for Best Actress at the Academy Awards) and one of Almodovar's best movies.

clubcultura

Bergman's Fanny & Alexander : Bergman's best film ever unites all of the director characteristics: the gorgeous art direction and photography (I'm wish I knew sweedish because I'm ashamed to polute the beautiful images with subtitles), the usual existentialist plot, Bergman's favorite actors... all come together in a play of life that inspires every viewer to look inside his own soul and try to find that magic sensation that we had when we were children.

ingmarbergman

Fellini's Satyricon : This might be a very difficult film for those who doesn't have the habbit to see cult movies, the plot is incontinuos and most of the scenes doesn't have connection, but despite all that Satyricon brings one of the greatest audiovisual experiences ever. Everyone that appreciates art will love its art direction and the ones that appreciate fashion will love the impecable costumes. Oh, and it's important to mention that Satyricon was one of the first movie to deal with homossexuality without any kind of prejudice.

worldscinema

Buñuel's Belle De Jour: Oh, Catherine DeNeuve! I mean, surrealism could never be more beautiful! Sex, love, mistery, drama, happiness, everything mixed up to create Buñuel most accessible movie. The sensations that you feel when you're watching these are so... unexpected, you don't know with you're feeling guilt or pleasure, you get confused trying to guess if it's love or lust and that's just mechanism for you to get into the main character's confused mind. Incredible!

Oh yes. I find this movie absolutely great. Darling Lili is such a terribly underrated movie. I honestly don´t understand why it was rather a flop back then. It´s funny and cute and Julie has some beautiful songs. I absolutely love "Whistling in the Dark". I get never tired of this song. And the shower scene is so brilliant. Lol.

Julie Andrews - Whistling in the dark (1970)

It's actually a future classic given that it was released only in 2001, but- Y Tu Mama También. Also Amores Perros and Amélie.

More 'orthodox' classics I think everyone should watch:

The Seven Samurai
Rashomon
Roman Holiday
Chungking Express

Victor/Victoria (any Julie Andrews fans should definitely watch this)
The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (Les Parapluies de Cherbourg in French, Deneuve in a musical!)
Come September (for Gina Lollobrigida)
Darling (for Julie Christie)

Has anyone seen Design for Living? I've only heard of it in recent months since there's a Criterion release for it. I'm not sure how likely it is that it would air on TCM but I requested it anyway & was thinking of getting the release for it even without having already seen it.

^I haven't seen it yet but if it's being released by Criterion then it's probably quite good. Criterion is pretty spot-on with it's releases.

Anyways... my picks for classic/iconic movies (which have all probably have been mentioned already but I'll say it again) include:

Roman Holiday
The King and I
To Kill a Mockingbird
Breakfast at Tiffany's
West Side Story
Romeo & Juliet
To Sir With Love


Also, I suggest checking out Netflix, they have a pretty good selection of instant movies available for viewing.

I don't see The Third Man or any old German Expressionst (Nosferatu, Metropolis, Cabinet of Caligari) or early Hollywood horror (Frankenstein, Dracula, Bride of Frankenstein, Them) on this page. Plus most Hitchcock but Vertigo is wonderful. Also Chaplin (modern Times) and Keaton (Sherlock Jr). Acck I could go on and on. Russian formalists, like Eisenstein's Potemkin or Vertov's Man with a Movie Camera. And of course all the others mentioned! I love Fanny & Alexander!!

Play it Again Sam, because it foreshadows the infinitely brilliant Annie Hall.

How to Marry a Millionaire because Bacall, Monroe and Grable make a formidable trio!! Marilyn is a doll in this film!!

Design for Living has beautiful gowns, but I wasn't invested in the story near the end. Of course it's always interesting to see pre-code talkies, and the film has a fair amount of content that would be unacceptable a year later.
