Haven't heard of many of these Johnny and I am a huge film fan.

One of the films I really liked in recent years:

And another - excellent animation.

BTW Johnny, I like Kurosawa's early work. I have Throne of Blood.

Yes, S_D, I recently saw Let the Right One In.  It was beautiful and creepy - great combination.
It also made me long to live in snow country again.

Awesome stuff.. (although looking at the movies I've listed they are shocking and disturbing movies ... you have been warned)

Excellent thread guys - thanks to the OP! A relief from the bloody doom and a damned fine one at that.

Yup, Das Boot is absolutely excellent Jerry. I could watch it again. In fact, I think I will do.

The Germans seem to be winning in this thread.
Here's a clip from Wings of Desire that made me feel so.....mortal:

“Belief is the death of intelligence. As soon as one believes a doctrine of any sort, or assumes certitude, one stops thinking about that aspect of existence.”
Robert Anton Wilson

It was an astonishingly good movie Enigma. The cold was a metaphor for the vampire girl - the whole film felt snowy/icy - possibly done for cinematographic reasons.

A lot of people found it slow/boring - I loved it. Mind you, I don't like most mainstream films. ;D

@ Bosch - Another superb choice!

Soldaat van Oranje. 
A rather erotic tango scene. 
It's not subtitled so if you want to know what's going on you'll have to watch the movie.

The only ones on this page I have seen are Seven Samurai, Das Boot, and Soldier of Orange.  Yikes, between music, books, movies, and gardens, there is just not enough time.  Chess anyone?
