    excellent list. there are a few that even i havent seen. but there are a few essential ones that i see you are missing. For example, if you can find it (Criterion has it listed as out of print) Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's PEEPING TOM, HUNGER by Steve McQueen, Wong Kar Wai's IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE, Truffaut's anything really most people like 400 BLOWS and David Cronenberg's NAKED LUNCH. I like how many Bunuel and Wes Anderson films i see on your list. I consider Kurosawa, Pasolini, Claire Denis, Bunuel, Dreyer, Wong Kar Wai, Antonioni, and Nuri Bilge Ceylan as well as Bela Tarr (both of whom for whatever reason Criterion hasnt picked up on yet) to be the best of the best. That being said see: Pasolini's MAMMA ROMA, TRILOGY OF LIFE, and SALO (if you can stomach it); Claire Denis' WHITE MATERIAL; Antonioni's L'Avventura, RED DESERT, and my favorite L'Eclisse (Monica Vitti is my favorite next to Isabelle Huppert); Bela Tarr every one likes SATANTANGO but i like WERCKMEISTER HARMONIES, MAN FROM LONDON, and TURIN HORSE; Nuri Bilge Ceylan 3 MONKEYS is my favorite, CLIMATES and ONCE UPON A TIME IN ANATOLIA is very good too. So i hope that gets you started. As far as I am concerned you are doing very well.

    I bought all those Pasolini films you listed but I haven't had a chance to watch them yet. I'm generally pretty queasy so I am hoping I can make it through Salo. Thanks for the other recommendations as well.
