Being the third and last part of the trilogy, The Human Condition III takes the visuals to a new level and leaves the other two films in the shadows. The way in which Kobayashi uses lights, shadows and tilted camera-angles, is highly comparable to Kalatozov's works, and it is a truly awe-inspiring experience to watch.
The final scene itself is epic, in every sense of the word, and stands as a hallmark example of why I love movies.

The Godfather (1972)




Aside from featuring the greatest character transformation in the history of cinema, The Godfather contains some of the most memorable scenes and movie quotes ever created. But to be fully appreciated, like many other films it has to be viewed multiple times. For example when you understand just how ingenious the opening wedding-scene is created, then you'll certainly appreciate the rest of the movie a lot more.

My favourite scene is perhaps the one where Michael awaits assistance in the hospital after having found out that his father is left alone and unprotected. The atmosphere created by the long, empty corridors and the echoing footsteps in the stairs is simply phenomenal.

Come and See (1985)




The horrors of war as seen through the eyes of a young boy. "Idi i Smotri" depicts the true reality of war, the reality where no heroes or glory exist and where women and children are slaughtered like animals.

There is a brief scene in which a birds nest is accidentally crushed by a foot, and we witness the grotesque remains of the poor little nestlings.
Of all the cruelty depicted in the film, this is probably the most haunting moment to me. It symbolizes all of the innocence that is being wasted during times of warfare.

The Thing (1982)




The immensely claustrophobical and scary atmosphere combined with the charming 80's special effect, makes "The Thing" one of the greatest horror films ever made. The blood-test scene alone is psychological terror at its finest.
Morricone's soundtrack is also highly underrated. It was in fact nominated for a Razzie Award, which is probably one of the stupidest happenings in awards history.

Wonderful list. I'm glad I'm not the only person who thinks The Holy Mountain was Jodorowsky's best film. El Topo wore me out; I never cared for its philosophical themes or religious undertones.
Posted: 5 years, 7 months ago at Jan 18 2:37
You don't see comedies as being on par with dramas do you?
Posted: 5 years, 7 months ago at Jan 18 12:08
boludotanook: I believe there's quite a lot of philosophical and religious undertones in The Holy Mountain too, but that film is so fragmented and absurd that you simply don't have a chance to grasp the full meaning. Although it at times gave meaning to me, I mainly let myself be carried away by its beautiful and ingenious images.

rewster: What do you mean? Are there too few comedies on my list? Maybe there is.... :)

Excellent list, we have similar taste. This is enough to add all the ones I haven't seen to my rental list. :)
Posted: 5 years, 4 months ago at Apr 13 9:55
Brilliant list! Also, great images to go with it! I'll check out the ones you've listed that I haven't seen! Keep up the great work you've earned my vote :D
Posted: 5 years ago at Aug 24 8:50
Very intriguing list. The addition of films such as Festen and The White Ribbon among the usual favorites is compelling enough for me to view the ones I haven't seen (including your number 1). Thanks!

LUV what you said about "Aguirre" and "Come and See", those two really took me by surprise the moment I first saw them!

Now I just 'have' to watch the rest of these...

I'm really impressed with this list, honestly all my favorites are here. Makes me very glad.
