    I have watched Mary Poppins as a Broadway musical and pretty much liked it ,I am sure the movie is a nice one as well....

    It's interesting that a lot of people pick older classics as their favourites, yet we seen a real change in filmmaking styles over the years. I don't see many film these days, but there are few filmmakers shooting stories of this scope above. Kurosawa, Kubrick, and Lean. Three filmmakers with incredible style. Are there any filmmakers that are as stylistic as these three making movies today? Maybe Malick or Terry Gilliam, but even these guys seem to be making smaller films.

    Did the process look take over as style from these great masters visual styles of how and where they put a camera.

    For me, David has listed a few of my old favourites, but I don't think a film has grabbed me for shear adventure as Raiders of the Lost Ark. I've heard a lot of Lucas/Spielberg basing over the years, but this has to be close to a perfect movie.

    I really don't have one in particular. Here are a few in no particular order.

    Lawrence of Arabia
    The film that got me in to all of this trouble. When I was a kid they used to play it in pan / scan on Sunday morning TV. I can still remember the dialog scene between Omar Sharif and Peter O'Toole at the well. They are standing on opposite ends of the 2:35 screen, so on a 4:3 TV you end up looking at a hole in the desert. Years later I saw the restored 70mm print at the Cinerama Dome from a seat that was dead center in the theater. It was amazing.

    The Red Shoes
    Shot in glorious three strip Technicolor by the great Jack Cardiff. 25 asa?

    City Lights
    The greatest ending in cinema, which may also be the greatest scene in cinema.

    It's a Wonderful Life
    How did this bomb at the box office?

    Sullivan's Travels
    Very clever and funny. A lot of it still holds true in Hollywood today.

    Papermoon
    Never share the screen with a kid or a dog. You'll lose. Lazlo Kovacs did some great work on this.

    Citizen Kane
    Gregg Toland and Orson Welles at their best.

    The Seventh Seal / The Virgin Spring
    On par with any piece of great literature.

    Sunrise
    Great, touching story and some of the best cinematography ever.

    Blade Runner
    The best sci-fi ever?

    Cabaret
    The editing and timing of this film is stunning. There is not an ounce of fat on it. Gorgeously shot.

    All Quiet on the Western Front (1930)
    It's old, it's black and white, but it hasn't lost any of it's impact. Heartbreaking. Probably the greatest anti-war movie ever made.

    The Terminator / Robo Cop
    Gritty sci-fi noir at it's best.


    One of the best recent movies I've seen was "The Wrestler". It was great, but incredibly sad. I would like to see it again, but need to get a running start.
