@dialmformovies (Rhett Bartlett)

1. Schindlers List
Almost the perfection of cinema.  Beautifully shot, brilliantly acted. Introduced me to a depressing subject matter in a way that film has never touched me before.

2. Jaws
A raw director, overcoming unforseen obstacles (loss of the mechanical shark), to create a horror film that began a whole never type of film making.

3. Sunset Boulevard
The single greatest female acting performance of all time.  A rare moment where an actress, and their role converged to leave a mark on cinema that will never be erased.

4. Duel
Simple, effective road movie, that still is as relevant today as in the 1970’s.  Maintains heartstopping action and interest despite barren landscape and cast.

5. The Last of Sheila
The greatest film no one has ever seen. Written by Anthony Perkins (Psycho) and Stephen Sondheim. The cast of James Mason, James Coburn, Richard Benjamin, Racquel Welsh, Dyan Cannon is unstoppable.

(Worth viewing:  Sweet Hereafter, M , The Station Agent , Opening Night , The Birds , Sweet and Lowdown , 2001 A Space Odyssey, Clue, The Lodger , Seance on a Wet Afternoon , Lawrence of Arabia , Before Night Falls, Four Lions, Fail Safe, Rope, Citizen Kane, The Pledge, Bladerunner, Field of Dreams)
