all the other ones are named here so i guess i will go with “the celebration”
Wendy & Lucy, The Son, & Last Days.
Mamma Mia? Only joking – I meant to say Festen, The Idiots (Dogme generally)
Banal: Frankenstein is also another good one. The fact they don’t have scores along with the quality of early sound recording gives such a chill to the stories. :)
All Haneke’s work except the Piano Teacher
@Josh S. – That is so true about how the prmitive sound quality makes it more eerie. have you watched the Spanish version of Browning’s Dracula? Real good.
Ah I forgot about Haneke! I agree!
Woody Allen’s Interiors.
…maybe one of Antonioni’s movies?
Michael Haneke’s body of work except the piano teacher
Dog Days by Ulrich Seidl
Breathless (1983) great score and songs.
Bresson and Bunuel…plus Bergman’s “Persona”
Banal1: It’s probably one of the reasons I love old horror better, it’s got such a ‘tinny’ quality to it if you know what I mean.
I have seen the Spanish Dracula, but it’s been so long I can’t really remember what it was like. I did like how it was a little more fleshed out than the other, but the other Dracula obviously doesn’t have the same eerieness as Lugosi.
Hmm definitely would agree with Network
I agree with Tristan: Cache!

I think Renfield is pretty bad, too, but visually it’s far more interesting than the second two-thirds of the Browning version, although it also completely misses the poetry of the opening third.
I don’t have a great memory of it, but Turtles can Fly. No Country for Old Men.
People here have allready mentioned the ones that I have thought of, but I’ll list them anyway. Most of the Bunuel films that I have seen do not have any music except for maybe Un Chien Andalou and L’age D’or. I think Antoninoi did not use a lot of traditional type of music in a lot of his films that I have seen, but instead tried to make the music different by sort of experimenting with the soundtrack and the film that I have seen of his such as L’eclisse basically is devoid of music. L’avventura and La notte do have people playing music in the background but there really does not seem to be a score to those films except with the starting of those two films and the ending of L’avventura. Another film that uses I guess uses atonal or dissonant type music is Red Desert. I think his sound effects are the music for his films if that makes any sense as well as the silence within them. And of course, No Country for Old Men and the Birds.
every movie would be burdened by a soundtrack in place of action, and direction. I advocate any and all silent films which justified the image above all media specific effects to causing an audience reaction as long as they didn’t have some asshole at a piano by the screen jazzing up the chase “riveting” moments
I think the obvious is Eraserhead. The industrial hum has more of an effect than any soundtrack ever could.
I like the homeliness of Funny Ha Ha.
THE CHINA SYNDROME is the first film I thought of.
