Christopher, if I may ask: where exactly do you teach?
Good call on The Swimmer and Point Blank
@DREW “I often find the best solution to exposing people to rarer films is to sit them down and watch it with them.”
– Very true. Sometimes those who know better, should not just talk but also walk the walk.
Besides the classics and those popular among cinephiles- these aren’t quite forgotten, but ones that deserve to be exposed more –
Z (Costa-Gavras), Ugetsu (Mizoguchi), Fat City (J. Huston), The Killing (Kubrick), Sun’s Burial (Oshima), The Last Laugh (Murnau), The Hill (Lumet), Pale Flower (Shinoda), The Killers (Don Siegel), Shadow of a Doubt (Hitchcock), Bad Day at Blackrock (Sturges), Thieves Like Us (Altman), Badlands (Malick), Cul-De Sac (Polanski), Raw Deal (A. Mann), Blue Collar (P. Schrader), The Conversation (Coppola), Nosferatu (Herzog), Seconds (Frankenheimer)… and many more.
