Star Wars has six movies. that aint no trilogy bro.
trilogy of terror with hot babe karen black. by far the best trilogy
Apu trilogy, hands down
HIROSHIMA MON AMOUR, LAST YEAR AT MARIENBAD, and MURIEL to me have always seemed a trilogy of memory. Love all three.
and another vote for Wajda’s WWII trilogy of GENERATION, KANAL, and ASHES AND DIAMONDS.
Trois Couleurs by Krzsyztof Kieslowki
Vengeance trilogy by Park Chan-Wook
WIM WENDERS’ ROAD MOVIE TRILOGY
Days of Being Wild/In the Mood for Love/2046
Angelopoulos trilogy,consisting of Days of ‘36-The Travelling Players-The Hunters,is surely up there with the greatest.It’s not exactly a trilogy,cause there are no common themes or people in the three movies.But they cover a period of Greek history from 1930 to 1970,dealing with the greatest historical events of this period through the personal stories of his protagonists.
From the ones that have already been mentioned above,among my favorites are surely:
Antonioni’s tirlogy(L’Avventura/La Notte/L’Eclisse)
Kobayashi’s Human Condition
Wong Kar Wai’s trilogy(Days of Being Wild/In the Mood for Love/2046)
Leone’s Dollars trilogy(A Fistfull of Dollars/For a Few Dollars More/The Good,the Bad and the Ugly)
Bergman’s Faith trilogy(Through a Glass Darkly/Winter Light/The Silence)
Also,Felini’s La Strada/Il Bidone/Nights of Cabiria if we could consider them a trilogy(I think someone has mentioned them in the previous pages)
I also like very much all three parts of Amici Miei,although I must admit that the first one is surely superior to other two and the third part is kinda weak(but it has some really hilarious moments for sure)
And the Godfather trilogy,though I would like better to have the(just good,imo)third film apart from the great first two films.
Ah I forgot the Noriko trilogy by Yasujirō Ozu
By the way,the one that I’m really looking forward to watching is Ray’s Apu trilogy.I have only watched Pather Panchali which was magnificent.
The Lord of the Rings
Also consider the three wonderful Toy Story films.
Pasolini’s trilogy of life.
Fellini’s trilogy of loneliness.
Kobayashi’s human condition trilogy.
Inagaki’s samurai trilogy.
Ozu’s Noriko trilogy and Kiarostami’s Koker triology
As far as a real trilogy (as opposed to fake trilogies like Van Sant’s Death Trilogy or von Trier’s various trilogies), I’d say the Bourne trilogy comes to mind as far as recent films.
Ashes and Diamonds
A notably excellent trilogy.
The original Star Wars trilogy is indeed on of my fav movie trilogies, but I really don’t have an all time fav. So, I’ll name a few that I like. – the man with no name trilogy, Hiroshi Inagaki’s “the samurai trilogy”, the Indiana Jones trilogy(guess it’s not a trilogy anymore), and the mad max trilogy. Every other trilogy I have seen has been ruined by the third film in the series. I would really like to see the Apu trilogy.
Easily Three Colors for me. However, I suspect Bergman’s Silence of God trilogy will be up there after I finish it.
Paul Morrissey – Flesh, Trash, Heat
Ozu – Noriko
Kiarostami – Koker (even though he says it isn’t)
John O’Brien – The Tunbridge Trilogy
Still getting around to the Bergman, Antonioni, Rossellini and a few others.
Tati- Mon Oncle, Playtime & Trafic
Antonioni- L’Avventura, La Notte, L’Eclisse
First Blood, Rambo II, Rambo III
Yasujirô Ozu’s Noriko and Satyajit Ray’s Apu trilogy
the tati films you mentioned are in no way a trilogy
@CURTIS- “the tati films you mentioned are in no way a trilogy”
Ha-ha! Yeah, I know. They might as well be- considering the common theme of Tati’s encounters with modern life.
I really enjoy the “Jennifer Connelly at the end of a pier trilogy”
-Requiem for a Dream
-The House of Sand and Fog
And Terry Gilliam’s “Trilogy of Imagination”
-The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
Kieslowki’s Three Colors for being sweet and also an actual trilogy.
Good but more “loose” are:
Bergman’s Silence of God
Lars Von Trier’s Golden Hearts
Trois Coeleurs and Silence of God
…and just for laughs I have to say the Class of Nuke’em High “trilogy” because no one is going to mention it.
I also really want to see Araki’s Teenage Apocalypse trilogy. I’ve loved Doom Generation since I saw it years ago, but still need to check out Totally Fucked Up and Nowhere.
Other than Three Colors and the commercial ones, how about Rosselini’s war trilogy?
Pasolini Trilogy of Life
Hated Kieslowsky’s trilogy, pretentious drivel, glad he stopped making movies not long after that, his Dekalogue though was fantastic.
Love the Apu-trilogy, LotR trilogy, Matrix trilogy, Bergman’s ‘faith’ trilogy Through a Glass Darkly, Winter Light, and The Silence
