Here are six good ones:Diary of a Country Priest (Bresson)Blow-up (Antonioni)In the Mood for Love and 2046 (Wong)Pride and Prejudice (Wright / 2005)An Angel at My Table CampionIkiru (Kurosawa)
I really liked Crash, The Squid and the Whale, Good Night and Good Luck, and A History of Violence. If you don't mind subtitles, The Bicycle Thief will break your heart.
Amelie. Even if you mind subtitles, this movie will fill up your heart.Birth. Even if you're reluctant to watch a movie about a woman who believes that a ten year old boy is her dead husband, this film will get under your skin and stay with you long after you're done watching it.Breaking Away. So, it was made 25 years ago. So, what? If you want to see a movie that will make you want to stand up and cheer at the end and will have you humming Italian opera for days afterwards, watch this film. I promise, it will elate you.Crossing Delancey. Another oldie but goodie. Dates back to the late 80's. If you want to see a sweet, pre-When Harry Met Sally romantic comedy, this is the ticket. Amy Irving plays a young, single woman in Manhattan who's fixed up on a date with the pickle man, played by Peter Riegert through her Jewish grandmother's matchmaker.A little bit of everything. A movie that will touch your heart, a movie that will haunt you, a movie that will make you root for the underdog, and a movie that will make you believe that sometimes, love can be found in the most unexpected places.
Me and You and Everyone We Know.
(Directed by, written by and starring Miranda July.)
