They're independent and nothing Hollywood or any other mainstream company has ever produced, even if you think of films like The Shawshank Redemption. I would never like films at all if I wouldn't find out someone with a great taste and knowledge of them and an interest in things that are the opposite to the mainstream. It's sad most Northen American/British/Australian viewers don't know such films even exist and that they're worth watching because of how many films and shows exist in English.

I can name one great film that I feel like it's one of the greatest on a personal level too. "Persona". I haven't watched enough of them to name the greatest ones, I watch quite rarily.

Sorry for not currently replying to your posts addressed to me. I will do that later (hopefully in a few days) because now I can't Please, don't take it personally because you have nothing to do with it.

I kind of agree with that sentiment at least in theory. in practice I watch stuff all the time because it's an addiction. I've been reducing it though, since ive been going without my laptop.

I'm not big on making a list of the top, but if I were forced to, this might be it (not in order except for maybe the top).

Blue Velvet
Dawn of the Dead (1978, as if that has to be said)
2001: A Space Odyssey
Eraserhead
Videodrome

I wouldn't say so. They have so much going on, a lot of subtext, and the pace is part of it. The mundanity in 2001 serves a purpose, to demonstrate how space travel has become routine. A man is even shown reading the directions on how to use a space toilet.

That and it's just boring and plotless.

Work a little bit harder on improving your low self-esteem, you stupid freak.

Oh quite the contrary. It is a very eventful and emotional movie. It's about the development of the human species, the human mind, and its ultimate destiny. Top-tier filmmaking, cinematic poetry. As far as movies that are considered the best of the best, it's one of the few I've viewed that actually justify the acclaim.
