Bergman is definitely one of the greatest directors worked in the film industry ever and for me, this one is his best film. Just about everything is pure perfection down to Sven Nykvist's incredible photography.

The Shining (1980)

Scarface (1983)
Disturbing, depressing and uncomfortable yet so utterly unforgettable portrait of an unstable human mind.

One of the biggest personal surprises for me since I didn't knew roundabout anything about this before watching the film from TV on one dark winter evening and well, it truly astonished me with its incredible BW-photography, humor and overall feeling which just about defines the word cool. Needs a rewatch and perhaps I like it even better then.

Now what do we have here might be the single scariest film I've ever bumped into. Humor is black and macabre and the whole time there's this utterly terrifying feeling of claustrophobiness in the air and everything is just so exiting that one's interest is guaranteed. Superb in every way.

People who added this item 784 Average listal rating (384 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 7.4
Well, if The Thing up there is _the_ scariest film I've ever seen, then this Possession here is a fine number two to that. Utterly disturbing experience with fancy use of camera and just brilliant acting, especially from the oh-so-cute-and-terrifying Adjani.

Without a doubt one of the funniest flicks I've seen so far. This one goes trough all the cliches of rock culture in just one and a half hour and makes them an incredible funny outcome which makes me laugh my ass off every time I see it.

Down by Law (1986)
My feelings about this are quite same as with Stranger Than Paradise up there except that now I was prepared for such greatness so it didn't hit quite so surprisingly, which of course doesn't make this a even bit worse than it is.

I'm quite sure that John Huston couldn't have made a better ending to his brilliant career than this incredibly beautiful film here. Could once again use a rewatch, I'd perhaps like this even better then.
People who added this item 1779 Average listal rating (1164 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.5
This isn't exactly the funniest creation of the Pythons but still of course a truly laughable film. I especially love the Mr. Creosote part and the Crimson Permanent Assurance intro by Gilliam.

Mystery Train (1989)
People who added this item 215 Average listal rating (97 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 7.2
This one represents the 1980's miniseries by Fassbinder which cannot be added to this list since it's a TV-thing.

Iron Warrior (1987)
Keaster's rating:

As the title says, 50 great films from the 80's in some kind of order. Short comments will probably be added to some of the films later on.
