    Fanny and Alexander Box Set

    Ingmar Bergman

    Howards End

    James Ivory

    Leroy: “Merchant + Ivory can do no wrong...especially with this Forster classic. Emma Thompson just shines and Helena Bonham Carter is irresistible.”

    Days of Heaven

    Terrence Malick

    Leroy: “Malick the Maverick...we would regret it if you've never made films like this one. 94 minutes of real visual delight...”

    Breathless

    Jean-Luc Godard

    Leroy: “Belmondo is sure cocky in this film...but Seberg's loveliness makes up for it. Why oh why did Richard Gere have to ruin it in the 80s remake...”

    Army of Shadows

    Jean-Pierre Melville

    Leroy: “Melville portraying his (perhaps all too skewed) experience with the Paris Resistance during World War II...you can't lose.”

    Bicycle Thieves

    Vittorio De Sica

    Leroy: “I hate this film...in a good way. It always reminds me of the relationship of that I had with my father, and that it's hard to be one. Thanks, Dad.”

    Le Samouraï

    Jean-Pierre Melville

    Leroy: “Delon is a tour de force without question in this film. He should have been considered as a Bond. But then again, he's just too darn classy.”

    Bad Timing

    Nicolas Roeg

    Leroy: “I must admit...my knowledge of Nicholas Roeg's work only comprised of The Witches. But after watching this and Walkabout...he's truly underrated.”

    An Angel at My Table

    Jane Campion

    Leroy: “I forgot how incredible Jane Campion is until I saw this film for the first time. Kerry Fox is just remarkable...Blu-ray edition where are you?!”

    The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

    Wes Anderson

    Leroy: “Air and space were my imaginary destinations as a child, but this film makes me wonder why I never considered the ocean.”

    Jules and Jim

    François Truffaut

    Leroy: “Let's be honest...all of us just watched Jules and Jim for the lumnious Jeanne Moreau...And dare I say it, better than A bout de souffle!”

    Scenes from a Marriage

    Ingmar Bergman

    Leroy: “Only Bergman can make 5 hours of watching a marriage picked apart fascinating to watch. It's why Bergman will always be relevant.”

    Steven Soderbergh

    Leroy: “Soderbergh's Ocean's Trilogy isn't his best work, but they are certainly as enjoyable (on a different level); this film is Hollywood done right.”

    Yojimbo/Sanjuro Box Set

    Akira Kurosawa

    Leroy: “My favorite Kurosawa flicks. Sanjuro is definitively the anti-hero that is really a model for other similar characters that would follow.”

    The Vanishing

    George Sluizer

    Leroy: “I have seen Sluizer's U.S. reboot and I must say, I'm glad I did because I probably wouldn't have seen this much superior take. Can't watch with a GF!”

    The Third Man

    Carol Reed

    Leroy: “The legendary Welles and Cotten, together again since Citizen Kane. That with a witty script my Graham Greene and Karan's zither score...CANT MISS!”

    Terry Gilliam

    Leroy: “What can I say that has already been said about this film. I just have to thank one of my professors in college who first shown this film to me.”

    Federico Fellini
