I'm leaving out some of the obvious titles whose reputations preceded them (ORDET, WAGES OF FEAR, etc.) and focusing on the gems (of both the unpolished and iridescent variety) that I'd never even heard of before I saw them in the CC's "Coming Soon" docket. I've made two lists of ten, arbitrarily separated by B&W and Color because there were just too many to include on one list. Next time I sit down, I could easily come up with ten wholly different ones (or a list for each country/decade/genre/whatever). Anyway, here are my picks for the most inspiring, haunting, crazy, stick-in-your-mind films that I've come across via Criterion/Eclipse.
