Stalker (1979)
Dream-like yet realistic film about a journey to each one's personal paradise. When the paradise brokes down all that is left, is the devastating emptyness of our shallow lifes. Tarkovsky tells us, we should live our lifes enjoying the things that might sometimes seem too obvious. The atmospehere of Stalker is quite impossible to put to words, it just is... out of this world. Tarkovsky's visual eye really pops up in this one as he has made one of the most visually stunning films ever. Stalker makes you think about your life from many different views.

The greatest movie of all time? Propably not, but it sure as hell is the most impressive piece of cinema I've ever witnessed.

A true American masterpiece. Worthy contestant to Citizen Kane, The Godfather and Raging Bull. A pitch-dark portrait of one man who represents the entire nation's greed for prosperity and fame. Day-Lewis' performance is brilliant and might just be the ultimate performance in the American film industry. When years pass, There Will Be Blood will be remembered as the masterpiece of it's era.

Themes of post-war depression and father-son -relationship wrapped beautifully together in this neorealist classic, which has a very minimalistic skin, but the core of a dozen other masterpieces.

Made almost completely without dialogue, Naked Island is one of the most beautiful things on this planet. It has very little actual story and so it gives the visual bombing even more room in the film. The essence of cinema in a nutshell.

I could always make the list much larger, but it's best to keep it simple. The order is correct and I often make updates for the list. Hope you enjoy!

Very nice variety! Glad to see Tarkovsky in there as well, I love "Stalker". If you do you may also enjoy "the element of crime" by Lars Von Trier.

Great list! Stalker is also my favorite.

Now this is what I call a great list!

Impressive selections here my man... I will read the rest at another time!

The majority of films on here have a higher rating on Listal than IMDb..I wonder why.

Yeah and I disagree with most of these, only a few I like on here.

Not many of these films are very good, A Clockwork Orange is overrated, as is Stalker. Salo is disgusting and vile. It's not cinema, it's entertainment for the dumb and sick minded.

Seen 70% of this. I still say very impressive list indeed!!
