27. Rashomon (1950)
A highly unique and enjoyable film, about three men and their different perspectives of one story. I had never seen a film by this director, and I now know too seek him out in the future. Rashomon is a remarkably made and very intelligent flick, that I recommend to most.

*PART 1*

Some of the most famous and highly praised films I'm yet to see. Most being pre-1980's era. This is part 1 of as many as it takes to see all of them. I am making multiple parts due to organizational reasons.

Listed from watched to not yet seen. I'll keep those on the list to voice my thoughts and such.

Some may think I'm watching these films purely because I want to simply "check them off". Truth is, I highly enjoy viewing cinema from the early years, and others from the 20th century that are highly praised. It's just a love of mine.

Any suggestions are welcome.
