Dylan Skorish's Top 10 Criterion Release

by dylansko

Created 07/17/12

Edit List
  • Kobayashi's 3-part 9 hour epic remains one, if not, the greatest pieces of cinema ever created. I can't help but agree that this powerfully made masterpiece is possibly my favorite film of all time.

  • One of Chaplin's 'Talkie' pieces, with its anti-Nazi messages to its brutal monologue on the state of the human condition it remains one of my all time favorites.

  • Amazing and underrated Frech cult-classic about a serial murderer being followed by a film crew as he commits awful crimes and the film crew eventually give in. Nihilist and highly reccomended

  • Ingmar Bergman Swedish masterpiece remains one of the highest regarded pieces of cinema ever. Beautiful transfer and thought provoking message.

  • The master of Surrealist filmmaking's, Luis Bunuel's, classic "The Exterminating Angel" is my favorite of his Mexican period and of his filmography all together.

  • Kurosawa's masterful rendition of Dostoevsky's 'The Idiot' is my personal Kurosawa piece other than Seven Samurai and Ikiru as one of his best of his Post WWII films.

  • I don't even though. This movie is just straight amazing.

  • Just a surreal, and fun film featuring one of my all-time favorite actors John Malkovich.

  • The BEST hands down of Hitchcock's British period. The camera work and style is only a precursor to his later American films to be sure.

  • Cronenberg. Now to those not familier with his films you may just be sitting there confused at this sentence, but to those who are. You more than likely shivered at his name just now. No? Ok just me then.

  • The best of Japanese Noir without any question.

  • You may not believe it but Polanski made some really cool movies before he got all weird.

  • My favorite film about film ever made. Surprisingly there is ALOT of those.

    Four of these films are in my criterion. And I've seen a majority. Nice list

    My name is also Dylan (except spelt different) and we have the same favourite film. The rest of this list is comprised of films that I either think are great or are personal favourites of mine. Except The Idiot which I own and plan to watch soon (the only one in the Postwar Kurosawa set I haven't seen yet). And Man Bites Dog, the only one I don't really know about – I'll take that as a recommendation. Great list! :)
