    Nashville

    Robert Altman

    Connor: “As the title implies, the movie is just as much a story of a place as the people who live in it, which is perfectly tuned to Altman's sensibilities. ”

    Naked

    Mike Leigh

    Paths of Glory

    Stanley Kubrick

    ···

    Close

    Repo Man

    Alex Cox

    Connor: “It's Wacky, yes, but it's also incredibly deadpan, every character just accepts this strange reality as the world they live in, which feels unique.”

    It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World

    Stanley Kramer

    On the Waterfront

    Elia Kazan

    Connor: “This is one of the 10 or 15 films whose reputation kind of puts it above criticism (Godfather, Citizen Kane, ect.), so I'll just say it deserves that.”

    Close

    Anatomy of a Murder

    Otto Preminger

    Connor: “Puts me in the mind of a sleazier Judgement at Nuremberg, everything done on both sides is morally questionable, and leaves you unsure of what's true.”

    Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday

    Jacques Tati

    Close

    Dazed and Confused

    Richard Linklater

    Connor: “Great, nostalgic view of the 70's, with one of the best soundtracks ever. Not always laugh-out-loud funny, but it isn't always trying to be.”

    Close

    The Wages of Fear

    Henri-Georges Clouzot

    ···

    Close

    Mystery Train

    Jim Jarmusch

    Connor: “Very Low-key, which isn't normally my cup of tea, but the movie has a very distinct sense of pathos to it, so let's say it's recommended.”

    Harold and Maude

    Hal Ashby

    ···

    Close

    Sweet Smell of Success

    Alexander Mackendrick

    The Night of the Hunter

    Charles Laughton

    Connor: “Not so much the suspense film I had expected as much as it is an exercise in showing a warped, twisted story from a child's perspective.”

    Fanny and Alexander Box Set

    The Rules of the Game

    Jean Renoir

    Connor: “Doesn't really kick in for me until about halfway through, and even then, it's not great. Dunno, maybe I don't hate the pre-war French elite enough. ”

    Close

    If....

    Lindsay Anderson

    Connor: “A master class in slow progression of a story that escalates through surrealism into an explosive finale. Hopefully O Lucky Man will get Criterion'd.”

    Seven Samurai

    Akira Kurosawa
