I'm leaving out some of the obvious titles whose reputations preceded them (FANNY & ALEXANDER, LOLA MONTES, 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.
