Sight and Sound Movie List - Die Grimes

The Fallen Idol (1948, dir. Carol Reed) - Boy with a Lisp and a Snake
A Taste of Cherry (1997, dir. Abbas Kirostami) - Boring Iranian Movie that cures well at 3 o'clock in the morning (like Bacon)
Rope (1948, dir. Alfred Hitchcock) - Hitchcock + Jimmy Stewart = Love.
Harold and Maude (1971, Hal Ashby) - Nathan Hale. 
Spirited Away (2001, dir. Hayao Miyazaki)- I don't even know what to say about that.
Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981, dir. Stephen Spielberg) - In honor of my father.
A Clockwork Orange (1971, dir. Stanley Kubrick) - Also in honor of my father.
Story of the Weeping Camel (2003, dir. Byambasuren Davaa & Luigi Falorni) - It's got a baby camel who weeps.
Harvey (1950, dir. Harry Koster) - Again, Jimmy Stewart. Fake Rabbit. WASPy mannerisms.
Cool Hand Luke (1967, dir. Stuart Rosenberg) - Hard-boiled egg challenge.

Honorable Mentions

Wait Until Dark (1967, dir. Terrance Young) - It's got a creepy old guy. 
Mullholland Dr. (2001, dir. David Lynch) - Lesbian sex. It's pretty awful but...
Nude for Satan (1974, dir. Luigi Batzella) a joke...not really - If you have not seen this movie, stop what you are doing right now. Hollywood video in Tenleytown has a copy. (Editor's note: Hollywood Video in Tenleytown closed five years ago)
WALL-E (2008, dir. Andrew Stanton) - WAAAAAAAAAAALLLEEEEEE
Dancer in the Dark (2000, dir. Lars von Trier) - Bjork and the death penalty!
