On a personal note…

These are some films i would recommend you take a look at:

1. Carlo Diario (1993) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0109382/

2. A Bout de Souffle (1959) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0053472/

3. Tampopo (1985) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0092048/

4. Double Indemnity (1944) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0036775/

5. Apocalypse Now (1979) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0078788/

6. Westworld (1973) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070909/

7. French Connection (1971) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067116/

8. Battleship Potemkin (1925) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0015648/

9.  The End Of St. Petersburg (1927) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0018066/

10. Blade Runner (1982) http://www.imdb.com/find?s=all&q=blade+runner


I found that because i had read The Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad that Apocalypse Now was a much richer viewing. Some of those films are expensive to find, especially in the UK, however if you see them cheap, for rent or at a local movie theatre then i highly recommend viewing them. Luckily with ‘internet rental’, such as Blockbuster Lovefilm etc, it is easier to take a punt on a rare/odd/arty film without having to spend £20 on a film you may not like. In the coming weeks and months i will do an introduction, synopsis and review of these films.
