Thought I might try to ask, could I get any recommendations based on some favorites?
By - PiggyTheRanga
All that Jazz and 3 Women
Actually if I included probably 2 more rows here All That Jazz would be in there, absolutely love it! Have not checked out 3 Women though, so thanks!
3 Women would go well in a triple feature with Persona and Mulholland Drive. Hope you like it. Outside the collection I highly recommend Under the Skin and Holy Motors.
I'm sure you've seen it, but The Lighthouse
Yes! Loved it as well, very excited to see where Eggers goes
\- Possession (1981)
\- Dancer In The Dark (2000)
\- Breaking The Waves (1996)
\- Happiness (1998)
\- Angst (1983)
\- Punch-Drunk Love (2002)
\- Magnolia (1999)
\- Dogtooth (2009)
\- The Lobster (2015)
\- Man Bites Dog (1992)
Lot on here that have been on my radar for a while, namely Dogtooth and Possession, so will for sure try to see where I can watch those!
Also absolutely love PDL and Magnolia... also Happiness is actually apart of this list but just a few rows down, think its one of the best films I've ever seen and hope Criterion can get their hands on it for a release, Thanks!
Memories of Murder
Let the Right One In
Picnic at Hanging Rock
Oh some solid ones in here that I haven't seen yet, so thanks for those!
PTA is actually probably my favorite 'mainstream' director (though not showcased too well here), so I loved Phantom Thread. Also Possessor was a bang, excited to see if Brandon Cronenberg deals more with horror and what he might be able to bring. Thanks
Wings of desire
You seem like you have very similar taste to me! If I were to recommend a film based on some of your favorites, I'd recommend There Will Be Blood. Not sure if you've already seen it though.
Yes! PTA is probably my favourite 'mainstream' director, though this list doesn't really give that away, and of course, absolutely love There Will Be Blood, great pick
A few Kubrick films in there, so maybe Dr. Strangelove to continue the streak.
Already seen it, though you might have inspired a rewatch since it's been about 2 years since I last saw it.... thanks!
Fallen Angels, In the Mood for Love, Chungking Express
I actually daringly bought the WKW boxset with only having seen Chungking and In the Mood for Love because both were so amazing. Yet to see Fallen Angels but now I'm looking forward to it, thanks!
i just saw it last night and fucking looooveed it
Persona (1966) - Because you like Mulholland Drive
Fanny and Alexander (TV Miniseries Release) My favorite Ingmar Bergman film.
Suspiria (1978) Great atmosphere, brilliant use of color, and soundtrack.
Paprika (2006) Very surreal, mystery dealing with dreams. Because you like David Lynch.
The Darjeeling Limited (2007) A more lighthearted choice. It gives me similar melancholy feelings as I get with Lost in Translation, but with a light touch of humor.
Yes! Just got the Bergman collection and watched Fanny and Alexander (TV version) a few days ago and thought it was brilliantly crafted. Also love Persona and Suspiria, have yet to see Paprika and Darjeeling, so thanks, they're on the list!
Have you seen any Tarkovsky? If not I think you’d like his films.
I think you’d probably get on well with Suspiria (2018)
I was going to say Suspira (1977) lol.
Did Suspiria in a double feature with the original some time ago, and you were right, both were right down my alley, great films, Thanks!
Amazing! They really are wonderfully twisted films. I’m glad we could help!
Seconding this and adding Dark City
I have a feeling that we might have a very similar taste in movies, so please consider these:
\- Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles (1975)
\- L'avventura (1960)
\- Alphaville (1965)
\- All that Jazz (1979)
\- The Saragossa Manuscript (1965)
Besides 'All that Jazz', which I only watched (and loved) a few weeks ago, I haven't seen the others, but they've been on my radar a while. Been sort of iffy about Jeanne Dielman because it's always sold as 4 hours of house chores which I'm not exactly sure how to take... and Alphaville I was planning to put on soon as part of a Godard binge I've been on of sorts, thanks for recs!
Well, I think that Jaenne Dielman works best (meaning: leaves one completely speechless) if you haven‘t read anything about it beforehand and start watching it only expecting 4 hours of house chores, so I won‘t say anything else. Just make sure to keep it on your radar ;)
If you haven't seen them, then Taxi Driver and Blade Runner. I say those because a lot of those on your list are my favorites along with the ones I listed.
Maybe some claasic Guillermo del Toro like Pan's Labyrinth or The Devil's Backbone
I would suggest some Jacques Demy musicals, especially "Umbrellas of Cherbourgh" and "Young Girls of Rochefort" if you haven't seen them. They were big inspirations on La La Land both in style and story, and the director of La La Land said in an interview his favorite movie was Umbrellas of Cherbourgh
Yes! Love Umbrellas of Cherbourg, I believe its actually on the wider version of this list, yet to see Rochefort but I believe it's been rec'd elsewhere here so that seals the deal I think, thanks!
If you liked La La Land, check out Demy (Umbrellas of Cherbourg and The Young Girls of Rochefort)
If you like epic period pieces like Barry Lyndon, I suggest The Leopard.
Seen Umbrellas of Cherbourg and absolutely love it, yet to see Rochefort so thanks for the recommendation... also I actually just watched The Leopard only a couple days ago because I noticed it was leaving the channel in a few, I'm still sort thinking about how I feel about it... Thanks!
I’m seeing a lot of horror and absurdism. Mostly American
House (1977) is awesome.
Not criterion so a little hard to find a good upload but A Page of Madness (1926) is pretty out there.
Both Japanese. i think you’ll see a lot of elements and techniques in these that you’ll recognize your favorite directors picked up on in their own work
House was actually one of the first films I watched at film school and thought it was great, very odd.... but very great. Have not seen Page of Madness though so excited to get around to it, thanks!
All that Jazz; La Dolce Vita; Rashomon; McCabe and Mrs Miller; the Long Good Friday
Yes! love All that Jazz and La Dolce Vita, have yet to check out McCabe and Mrs Miller though, so thanks for the rec!
seems like your taste is fairly similar to mine, and some of my favorite movies that i don’t see here are After Hours, The Last Big Thing, Adaptation., and Easy Rider
Haven't seen all except Adaptation (which so far so good on the same taste thing, thought it was great), After Hours has been one to elude me for a while, I think it might be time to track it down and watch it, thanks!
The Skin I Live in by Pedro Almodovar is very heavily influenced by Eyes Without a Face
The Young Girls of Rochefort and The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (based off La La Land)
Mind hunter (based off Zodiac)
Brand Upon the Brain — You really won’t regret it
City of Lost Children
New York New York, Her, The Straight Story
Sofia Coppola has credited in the mood for love as one of the inspirations for lost in translation. Also spike Jones is Sofia Coppola’s ex husband and he later made her which is a great double feature with it
If you like Haneke then you might like these deliberately cruel movies: Cure, Dead Ringers, Blood Simple, Night Moves (honestly either of them, Kelly Reichardt's movie is excellent), and maybe The Game if you haven't seen it.
Legend of 1900, Glengarry Glenross, Kiss Me Deadly, Eagle vs Shark
Have you seen *The Master*? That’s my all time favorite film, and I think it’s perfect based on your favorites.
PTA is actually my favourite 'mainstream' director, though this list might not preach that, and yeah, absolutely loved The Master, it's such a brilliantly crafted film that went completely over my head the first time I watched it, but after thinking about it for days after the first time, a second time really kicked me into seeing how amazing it really was... thanks!
No problem! He’s my favorite too.
The Seventh Seal and If...
As my flair suggests, WATCH SOME BERGMAN! And if you’ve seen some already, WATCH MORE BERGMAN!
