Any Film from: Ermano Olmi, Werner Schroeter, Jean-Marie Straub, Francesco Rosi (besides Christ stopped at Eboli), Andrzej Zulawski, Jerzy Skolimowski, Glauber Rocha, Alain Tanner, Carlos Enrique Taboada, Kidlat Tahimik.
First off, any of these are a blessing, as I’m trapped in a small city with very little access to the greats.
The BRD Trilogy
Night and Fog
Celine and Julie Go Boating
The 400 Blows
Zazie Dans le Metro
Humanity and Paper Balloons
Dog Star Man
the original Dawn of the Dead
The Rules of the Game
The Third Man
Love in the Afternoon
City of Pirates
anything by Ozu
Made in USA
Day of Wrath
W.R.: Mysteries of the Organism
Un Chien Andalou
a cleaned-up print of Rashomon
anything by Manoel de Oliviera
The Umbrellas of Cherbourg
Band of Outsiders
It would be nice to watch more public domain movies like Fritz Lang’s M… And some Fassbinder movies if possible…
Yeah Fassbinder! I’d love to see the BRD trilogy on here.
Akira Kar-Wai, I am also a huge fan of Fassbinder. And, we are most definitly would try to feature as many films as possible from this great director at The Auteurs. Right now, we are trying to get Ali:Fear Eats The Soul to begin with.
Life is beautiful(La Vita è bella)-Roberto Benigni
Los Amantes del Círculo Polar (Lovers Of Artic Circle) de Julio Medem
Punch-Drunk Love, by far my favorite PTA film.
Train de vie
deepa mehta’s earth/fire/water trilogy…she’s listed as an auteur but none of her movies have pages!!!
we need some more directors to even out all the white guys!
maybe some have already been mentioned or added since I last looked but here goes:
Dancer in the Dark / Insomnia (original Norwegian) / American Beauty / Roadkill and other films by Canadian director Bruce McDonald / Sexy Beast by the brilliant Jonathan Glazer / Mitt Liv Som Hund / Repo Man / Midnight Cowboy / Rushmore / Cabaret /
there are some of my faves I didn’t find on here, thanks for the great site!
oh, and Das Boot and Alien
Ok wait a second, I can’t believe some people actually really think they’re gonna put some movies for FREE such as "repulsion, alien, etc.) I mean this is a website for some not very known films, and they are never gonna put movies from MGM, RKO, etc in here….
by ‘adding’ I don’t mean necessarily for viewing but for reviewing, comments and as a record in the auteurs
Jodorowsky, Argento, more Fassbinder, Pasolini, John Waters…
new film of dardenne bros “silence of Lorna”
Well then, More of everyone…. more of Bergman, Fincher, Cassavetes, Cocteau, Godard, Truffaut, Bertolucci, Fassbinder, Tarantino, Scorsese, De Palma, Ford, Spielberg, Welles, Wilder, Melville, Chabrol, Kurosawa, Allen, Varda, Bunuel, Almodovar, Altman, Pressburger, Aronofsky, Becker, Besson, Bird, Bresson, Brook, Scott, Burton, Fellinni, Visconti, Carpenter, Chaplin, Clouzot, Clément, Coen, Coppola, Dassin, De Sica, Edwards, Gilliam, Griffith, Ozu, Lang, Malle, Mann, Murneau, Nolan, Pakula, Peckinpah, Lumet, Polanski, Powell, Redford, Renoir, Resnais, Rivette, Tarkovsky, Vertov, Wajda, Wenders, Kieslowski, Zemeckis…
For a “cinema” website it really needs much more movies….
and The Last Waltz (Scorcerse) – even have a music category where the music video work of, just for example, Jonze and Glazer could be acknowledged?
Speaking of music videos: what about the work of Chris Cunningham?: Rubber Johnny and the Aphex Twin films (“Come to Daddy” and its spawn), and other creations from the Warp Label. I doubt they’d let go of the distribution rights, but a music category: it’s a good idea.
I’ll just throw in a few things that we can’t get here in the US very easily….(if I’m wrong on something let me know so I can get my hands on it!)
Ophuls’ “Letter From an Unknown Woman”
Fassbinder’s “Love is Colder Than Death” (I believe it is out of print)
Ernst Lubitsch’s “Cluny Brown” (I saw it a few weekends ago and fell in love with it)
Akerman’s “Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles”
Most of Edward Yang’s films
Pere Portabella films
Gina – yes to all of the above. Though could I really watch “Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles” on a small screen? maybe we’ll find out. Still, I’d love to see Cluny Brown on here, and more Lubitsch in general… The Man I Killed is a pretty interesting and grossly-underseen Lubitsch as well (though not quite a masterpiece, and with a strange tone for Lubitsch…).
I would especially love to see more Yang and Portabella!
Jaime Rosales’s 2007 film La Soledad, which won Goyas (Spanish equivalent of Oscars) for Best Director, Best Film, and Best New Actor.
Bill Haney’s 2007 doc The Price of Sugar, about Hatians who move to the Dominican Republic for work and then find themselves in virtual slavery to the sugar companies that ‘employ’ them.
Peter Weir’s films (“Picnic at Hanging Rock”, “The Last Wave”, “The Truman Show”)
George Miller’s Films (“Mad max”, “Pig in the City”, “Lorenzo”…)
Scott Hicks’ “Snow falling on Cedars” or “Shine”
Suzuki’s “Gate of Flesh”
Argento’s “Suspiria”, “Phenomena”, “Stendhal Syndrome”…
Some Carpenter films :)
Tobe Hooper’s “Texas Chainsaw Massacre”
Roger Avary’s “Killing Zoé” and “Rules of Attraction”
“Trouble Everyday” and “Beau Travail”
“Mauvais Sang” and “Pola X”
“To Kill a Mockingbird”
“The Scarlett Empress”
there’s so many movies you never get to see, maybe here (who knows?). So there is (and there are many more…):
Edward Yang – that day on the beach (1983, camera Christopher Doyle)
Isabel Coixet – things I never told you (1996)
Faouzi Bensaidi – www – what a wonderful world (06)
Nabil Ayouchi – une minute de soleil en moins (03)
Andrew Busalski – funny haha (02)
– mutual appreciation (05)
Hal Hartley’s early shorts: kid, dogs, the cartographer’s girl
Przemyslaw Wojcieszek – doskonale popoludine
Kohei Oguri – der schlafende Mann
John cassavetes – husbands
I’d love to see Jamón, Jamón — with Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem
Payback with Joan Severance and C. Thomas Howell, or any Joan Severance or C. Thomas Howell
and any of those great Tanya Roberts B-movies from the 80s and 90s
I’d like to see Michael Cimino’s Heavens Gate. I mean there are bunch of films i can note here. But recently i spoke to someone about heavens gate and i personally enjoyed it. Now it is a bit pretentious and overly ambitious but sometimes we as filmmakers have to aim for the skys and if we get to close to the sun and get burned well then so be it. In my opinion i think Cimino likes it that way. Getting burned i mean.
Stan Brakhage films and others like them
La Source from Bergman, It would be very interesting.
David Lynch’s films? Especially Eraserhead and Blue Velvet.
Nice list U.K.!
