We all have films, that for some reason or another, we are embarrassed that we have not seen despite the critical acclaim they may have received. This is one of the reasons why I decided to create The Must See List series. Over at Toronto Screen Shots, James is attempting something similar, but on a far more manageable scale, with his Blind Spot series. The concept is to take 12 films you have not seen and ensure that you watch and review one each month. Ryan at The Matinee made the great suggestion of using the last Tuesday of every month as the day reviews will be posted.
Here are my twelve selected films:
La Dolce Vita (Federico Fellini, 1960)
Badlands (Terrence Malick, 1973)
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (Andrew Dominik, 2007)
The Outlaw Josey Wales (Clint Eastwood, 1976)
Black Narcissus (Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger, 1947)
Vanishing Point (Richard C. Sarafian, 1971)
Breathless (Jean-Luc Godard, 1960)
12 Angry Men (Sidney Lumet, 1957)
Double Indemnity (Billy Wilder, 1944)
The Battle of Algiers (Gillo Pontecorvo, 1966)
Rashomon (Akira Kurosawa, 1950)
Nashville (Robert Altman, 1975)
