    A fantastic French film from 1931, "Marius". Drama, comedy, romance, ...I assume Yazeh is familiar with it.

    I've been on a Myrna Loy / William Powell tour. Just watched "I Love You Again", 1940. Must see, if only for Powell leading a boy scout troop, but there is so much more. And I am developing a crush on Myrna Loy.

    The little blond of the Casbah 2023
    Based on the director's autobiography, his life as a young jewish boy in Algers, French Algeria, during the war and how he discovered the magic of movies to cope with the violence.
    It's by no means perfect, but it's poignant, and will strike a chord with anyone who has known exile.

    Django 2017 French movie, biopic of Django Reinhardt. It's used as a vehicle to commemorate the genocide of the Romani people.

    The film despite its joyous music is often oppressive.
    The opening is a tell all. Django is about to play at the concert hall in 1943 occupied Paris, many of which are German/Nazi officers.
    The acting is especially top notch, especially by Django's grandma.

    "Only Angels Have Wings", a Howard Hawks film with Carey Grant and Jean Arthur about a small air-mail service that flies over the Andes from the fictional town of Barranca. Great Hawks about the small group of fliers, the mechanic, the radio man, the weather lookout, and the owner of the hotel, the field and the mail service. A fine movie and fine, fine acting

    Two French Docu-dramas, both of them haunting, as they show you all the buildings these characters went to.
    Now if the stones talked:
    One about Jean D'arc, and the other about Michel de Nostredame, aka Nostradamus.

    The Australian film "Picnic at Hanging Rock" from 1975. Very good open-ended mystery.
    The Polish film "No End" from 1985. Excellent, but a "downer". Some say that to truly grasp this film, one needs to have lived through Poland's martial law of the period.

    I think you can qualify almost all Kieślowski films as Downers. I saw his later films and there was nothing fun about them either. Funny thing is that you can qualify almost all Bergmann's films as Downers too. And he lived in one of the most free, prosperous countries. I think maybe it has to do with the culture, history and view point of a nation. I doubt we will be flocking to cinemas for the latest Swedish/ Polish comedy, anytime soon

    From 1952, "Never Open That Door" ("No abras nunca esa puerta"), an Argentine noir made up of two independent shorter movies. Both parts were very good, reminiscent of Hitchcock or some non-scifi Twilight Zones.

    That's why I don't want to rewatch some of the films I loved when I was younger. To keep the illusion

    Another Argentine film from 1952 "If I Should Die Before I Wake". Holy cow! Superb thriller... but NOT for kids.... too scary!

    From 1949, "Alias Nick Beal" starring Ray Milland. A take on "Faust" set in modern politics. Really good!

    A nice documentary from 2012 called "Lunch". It's about a large group of comedy writers and directors from the earlier days of TV and movie who meet every other Wednesday for lunch.

    I rarely watch movies anymore, but the wife was out of town with her sister and cousin, it was raining, and I was bored.

    I had purchased The Green Book with Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali some time ago, and finally got around to watching it.

    Much better than the 34th installment of some franchise. I wish Hollywood would go back to telling a good story instead of seeing if they can set a new record with CGI budgets.
