Currently I like Kubrick, Malick, and Paul Thomas Anderson films. I’ve seen their all their films. I’ve also seen all of the Coen Brothers films, whom I used to like a lot but I’ve lost interest in recently. I’ve also seen a lot of film in general, last year I watched over three hundred films that I had never seen. I ended up watching a lot of foreign and older films.
I’m having trouble finding some films that are my favorites. I don’t think I’ve ever been able to make a top 10 favorite films list. I feel like I’m in a rut that I can’t get super attached to a film. Can you all help recommend me great films I haven’t seen to watch so they can find a special place in my heart? Thanks.
Work in Progress

4. Elephant Man (losing interest in though, need to rewatch)
5. Dr. Strangelove
6. North by Northwest
If you like Kubrick and Malick, and you don’t mind subtitles, you should check out Tarkovsky. Start with Stalker and see where it takes you.
It’ll take you to The Zone :)
Thank you. I’ve seen Stalker and most of Tarkovsky films (Solaris, Stalker, the Sacrifice, Andre Rublev). I hold these films in high regard but they just aren’t favorites. Normally my favorite movies I can watch over and over again with ease. I need to check out The Mirror though. Sorry, but I feel like I’m going to be saying that I’ve seen a lot of these recommendations. So surprise me :-)
Oh, try Marketa Lazarova then. Or Valley of The Bees, or The Red & The White, or maybe Diamonds of The Night.
Actually, comedies are good for re-watch value. Maybe check out Songs From The Second Floor or Flickering Lights or Gregory’s Girl for some you may not have seen.
I was about to say Marketa Lazarova.
Check out Children of Men or Y tu Mama Tambien if you haven’t. When I was in a movie rut, Alfonso Cuaron pulled me back in.
The 3 Gaspar Noe films, he is the first famous director which the biggest influence on him is Stanley Kubrick.
