Finally, I got time to response Matalos great list which on one hand surprisingly often accords to my own (do we speak italian? ) but on the other reminded me that I've seen far too few films of the New Hollywood movement. Fortunately, I now know who to ask for help.
A few of the films listed surprised me a lot, especially titles like Fulcis "Sette note in nero", "Klute", "Hitch-hike" (!!!) or Cassavetes' "Opening night" (which I really need to see) but overall, the list confirms your excellent taste! Hope you will share "Deep end" with A and me soon as we are both dying to see it since a long time...
It would be a real pity if Skolimowski won''t find producers who are willing to finance "America" but it seems rather dark as the whole project is said to be in pre-production for such a long time now without anything happening.
After A, you and me included "Red sun" on our lists, some of the others could be interested in Thome's masterpiece now, I hope.
"Eastern Promises" will probably be the last (hopefully) masterpiece I will see in the theaters 2007 as the german release date has been postphoned to December the 27th two weeks ago. It's so great to watch Cronenberg forming his complex vision further and further since 30 years now without getting soft, pleasing and too "mainstreamy". Still, I've seen too few of his films but I would already consider him as one of the most interesting and headstrong american directors working today.
We'll have time to discuss "Keoma" together with Matalo on our ride to Karlsruhe, I guess. And your shocking post on Leones "Once upon a time in the west"! Btw, we should rewatch John Hustons wonderful "The man who would be King" and "African Queen" together as I noticed how much I liked every Huston I saw in the past and we possibly could have a little, rare consensus about him.
@ wpqx and A:
Guess I have to watch "Fat City" now, even if it is one of Godard's favourites.
