… oh, and the final scenes of Poetry
Oh come on, North by Northwest! Mm, also Psycho, The Graduate, Kiss me Deadly, Zabriskie Point(!), Lost in Translation, Reservoir Dogs, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. That’s a lot, I suppose.
What’s that gif from Balistik?
A Serious Man
Good call with Stroszek, I would also add Aguirre.
I wholeheartedly agree with previously mentioned “8 1/2”, “Ikiru”, “Aguirre” and Tarkovsky’s “Solaris”. I was also deeply moved by the ending of “The Reflecting Skin”.
Good call on POETRY m klein.
@ Ben… Heat?

HAPPINESS- I came!
LEAVING LAS VEGAS
SUMMER HOURS- French flick.
PARIS, TEXAS- :(
DEAD MAN WALKING
I was thinking about CHINATOWN.
Didn’t particularly care for the film. But thought the ending was perfect.
The Third Man
A Clockwork Orange (“I was cured, alright.”)
The English Patient
Off the top of my head…
(No complains whatsoever about anything Wes Anderson ever does in slow-motion)
The icon montage at the end of Andrei Rublev. If there is a moment in the cinema that might be called transcendent, that’s probably it. Come to think of it, Andrei Rublev also has one of my favourite opening scenes of all time as well—the man in the balloon.
“Shut up and deal.”
The Man Who Wasn’t There
Once Upon a Time in America
The Brigde on the River Kwai
Heartbreaking = Blow Out
