i have put it together trying to focus on titles which are not easiest to discover and which i would be most happy to watch if didn’t know them yet
no obvious classics, no obvious cult movies and even no obvious obscure shit. only unappriaciated and underrated picks which have magic and not enough hype.
treat it like one of a subjective list which are best type of “top lists” around in my opinion.
i don’t want to consider my choices best movies in history. every of these films is exceptional, and often exists in their own category only.
some of these movies due to fame of their creators are broadly recognized (eg. The Player), but the goal of my list is to give them special recommendation while they are often omitted.
some of these movies are hidden gems (eg. Hukkle), and some of them are commonly considered as average in fact being unusual (eg. Renaissance)
the astonishment from dealing with something special brought them all here together.
i like to take movie art as an entertainment which is why you’ll find here Exterminating Angel rather than Last Year At Marienbad.
the selection is severe so there are no P.T.Andersson and Coen Bros. contributions
i feel oldtimers rather outdated apart of some scarce exceptions
as you can conclude, my favorite director of all time is Robert Altman, two of three of his pictures put on the list belong to the “one of a kind” category, and one of them – The Player – I consider as an essential and ultimate meta-movie-experience
no particular order
