Favorite American film?

Postby Don Lope de Aguirre » Sun Apr 02, 2006 2:20 am

Mine is between these 5:

Dead Man (Jarmusch)
The Godfather (Coppola)
Apocalypse Now (Coppola)
Chinatown (Polanski)
Once Upon a Time in America (Leone)

I'm leaning towards Dead Man, but those other four are hard to leave out.

Have yet to see a Cassavetes film.

Directed by an American or mostly funded by Americans?

If it's the former then i'd punt for Faces.

After 10 mins of though, it'd probably be the same answer anyway.

Neither Leone nor Polanski are A-merican though.

Ehhh, you're right. Both films are in English though, and I believe both were released in American theatres before any other country. Not too sure though.

Just, whatever you think is an American film, you can choose.

A Woman Under the Influence would get my vote for Cassavettes best (sorry if misspelled). As for your question, I'd go for the obvious Citizen Kane, which meets both your criteria.

Woman is generally the most highly regarded Cassavetes work, unfortunately again due to it being his most accessible.
