The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928)- shamefully only managed to see this silent film recently and was blown away by it- a classic that actually deserves to be called one...

also Greed (1924)- another amazing silent film

Everyone should watch the fabulous Pre-Codes "Baby Face" (starring Barbara Stanwyck) and "The Divorcee" (starring Norma Shearer). Great wardrobes in those films!

freja & siri.

I really like these 2 films by Luis Bunuel

-Simon del diserto (Simon Of The Desert) 1965
-El Ángel exterminador (Exterminating angel)1962

There both such good films that have so many hidden meanings. I think i also like them because I dont fully understand everything in the movie and everytime I watch it again I see something new. Exterminating angel is basically a giant metaphor , and Simon of the desert has the wierdest ending.

These are all great suggestions. I've only recently become interested in classic movies, and a bunch of these are definitely going into my Netflix queue.

I just saw 'La Piscine' with Romy Schneider and Alain Delon. What a great movie!!! I love, love, love Romy Schneider!

Oh, that is definitely a favorite! Marilyn Monroe is amazing in this movie, there was something so stunning about her.

PERFORMANCE !!!!!!! (1970) - best english film ever made, I'd say. I LOVE it! It's awesome, with a great feel of Swinging London to it, a dull, chaotic, psychadelic, dangerous, bewildering, stunning and fascinating movie starring Anita Pallenberg, James Fox and Mick Jagger.

The Birds - one of my favourite Hitchcock films!

Barbarella (1968) - well, what to say? Psychadelical to the end. :p starring Jane Fonda and Anita Pallenberg

Breakfast at Tiffany's, naturally.

A Degree of Murder (Germany 1967) - starring Anita Pallenberg (this film I haven't seen in it's entirety. I've only watched a few scenes, but they were great and I hope I'll get to watch the remaining scenes soon! )

Well, as I said, Performance is an absolute MUST SEE!

I'm reluctant to see anything by Kubrick since then.

I don't know how obscure this movie is, but I really enjoyed Letter from an Unknown Woman (1948), with Joan Fontaine and Louis Jordan
