Seven Samurai (1954)
Akira Kurosawa is singlehandedly created most of all cinematic technics and styles we use now today. Alongside with Citizen Kane, Star Wars and The Sevent Seal Seven Samurai is one of the most influential movies of all times. With great camera work, great actors, great story and one and only Kurosawa-style direction this is in my opinion as perfect as a movie can be.

Persona (1966)
Persona is haunting, disturbing and mysterious. It ties together all the good elements of the film as an artform itself and in the end seems more like an artform of its own.

La Strada (1954)
La Strada makes you smile, laugh and cry. It is as beautiful as life itself. Great characters made alive by great actors who give all they've got to the role and make it hard to distract yourself from the movie. You live and you die with the characters and all these great emotions are enhanced with the most beautiful cinematography.

"There's two kinds of people in the world my friend: Those with loaded guns and those who dig."
There is no man with such charisma as Clint Eastwood. His chilling and cool-as-hell performance goes perfectly with Eli Wallach's cheesy and slimy villain not to mention Lee Van Cleef with his charismatic and deadly presence. This trio kicks ass on its own perfectly but when you put in such of an genius like Sergio Leone, then you've got a masterpiece.

Apocalypse Now feels more like an horror movie than a war movie. It takes you in to the darkness of the human soul. You never know what the movie is gonna do and where it's gonna go and that makes it dangerous. Great performance from Martin Sheen makes you wonder why he isn't in every movie nowadays.

(1963)
8 1/2 is truly more like a roller coaster than a movie. Every visual in the movie is a piece of art on its own. The main character Guido played by Marcello Mastroanni is so well constructed that you can almost feel him breathing next to you in the theater.

Jaws (1975)
Tension builds up to extreme and finally in the end you get so intense final battle that you can feel the blood and water physically. That's Jaws.

Godzilla (1954)
Is there anything more horrifying in the world than the horror of war. Well there's Godzilla. Clearly an movie that deals with post-war traumas and problems of Japan. This movie makes you shiver first from horror of war and then from grief of the losses of war. With great monster-effects, great cinematography and important subject matter this movie is a definitive must-see.

Eraserhead (1977)
More of a dream than a movie, this disturbing film is a perfect example of the talent of David Lynch. With Jack Nance as the eerie and dark Henry Spencer and cinematography taken right from your nightmares this movie is the clear king of all midnight movies ever.

Taxi Driver (1976)
The city of New York, but not like in Woody Allen's Manhattan this one is completely upside down. The movie follows Travis Bickle, a madman but not less from his own madness than from the madness of the city. Martin Scorsese's landmark in film shows not only cinematography that grips you and shakes you but the real talent of Robert DeNiro as a true actor genius.
