Not in order, seen everything already except no.2:

1. Satantango (Bela Tarr)

7 1/2 hour long film. Always wanted to re-experience this amazing journey ever since watching it for the first time, but it is really hard to free up 7 1/2 hrs.

2. histoire du cinema (Jean-Luc Godard)

I want to see this so badly, but I just don't know where to find it. Learning French would be a quicker option than waiting for a DVD with English subs.

3 and 4. Zerkalo (Andrei Tarkovsky) and Nostalghia (Andrei Tarkovsky)

Two of my favorite Tarkovsky films. Watched about 10 times each, and only gets better each time.

5. Four adventures of Reinette and Mirabelle (Eric Rohmer)

Waiting for the VHS to arrive (which I've ordered weeks ago).

The Helvetica documentary is my most anticipated movie of the year.

I wish I could watch Empire Strikes Back with the same mindset that I had when i first saw it.

3. The Departed

4. Babel

5. The Queen

I watched Babel last week. The worst film I've seen in a long time. I thought the same about Crash last year.

What a load of wank.

Since the post above, I've managed to watch Zerkalo twice and Nostalghia and 4 adv of Reinette... once each. I'm really stoked on the news that the new French Gaumont DVD release of Histoire du cinema by JLG is coming in a couple of weeks!!!

I am so excited :)

Updated list

1. Histoire du cinema (Jean-Luc Godard)

2. Berlin Alexanderplatz (Reiner Werner Fassbinder)

3. Electroma (Daft Punk) - the Daft Punk thread in SuperCulture got me interested in this

4. Roads of Kiarostami (Abbas Kiarostami) - rewatch
