WHY SEVEN?!

OK, JUST THE ONES I CAN THINK OF IN TEN SECONDS TIME:

1) THIS IS SPINAL TAP (REINER)
2) CLERKS (SMITH)
3) DAY OF THE DEAD (ROMERO)
4) CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (DEODATO)
5) NIGHT ON EARTH (JARMUSCH)
6) TAJVANSKA KANASTA (OBSCURE SERBIAN MOVIE)
7) SE7EN (FINCHER) (AH, WHY NOT...)


OK, IT WAS 20 SECONDS!

THIST LISTS ALWAYS MAKE ME CRAZY!

1- Edward Scissorhands (dark, sad and beautiful! :roll:)
2- Meet Joe Black (wonderful soundtrack, too!)
3- Interview With The Vampire (gothic/romantic, as I like it! :-D)

4- Matrix (excellent movie!)
5- Willie Wonka (J.Depp was great in that role!)
6- The Silence Of The Innocents (Anthony Hopkins is the best!)
7- The Nightmare Before Christmas (so funny!!! :-D)

It's easy to see that TIM BURTON is my favourite  movie-director! ;)

WHY SEVEN?!

i was going to ask the same. and since seven is a strange number, i have decided to cheat! :-P
anyway, some favorite ones for me:

sacrifice (andrei tarkovski)
+ other movies by tarkovski. he's maybe The Director that ever impressed me the most.
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001789/

fanny och alexander (ingmar bergman) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0083922/

dead man (jim jarmusch)
i used to love it but it's been long since i saw it, i should watch it again to find out how i'd feel about it today.

'dead man (jim jarmusch)
("Look out the window. And doesn't this remind you of when you were in the boat, and then later than night, you were lying, looking up at the ceiling, and the water in your head was not dissimilar from the landscape, and you think to yourself, "Why is it that the landscape is moving, but the boat is still?")

'der himmel über berlin' (wim wenders)  (that hollywood remake they did later was awful! :S)

le mystere de picasso (henri-georges clouzot) 
http://www.popmatters.com/film/reviews/m/mystery-of-picasso.shtml

das boot (the original, uncut version) (wolfgang petersen)
alien (ridley scott)
jeremiah johnson (sydney pollack)
the machinist (brad anderson) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0361862/
butch cassidy & the sundance kid (george roy hill)
ice storm (ang lee)
rumble fish (fr.f.coppola)
lost in translation (sofia coppola)
the duellists (ridley scott)
remains of the day (james ivory)

+many films based on screenplays written by david mamet, some films by m. night shyamalan, robert altman, aki kaurismäki, francois truffaut, others...

was that seven?  :-D

oh, and this spanish movie that i once saw from TV but didn't tape it or write down the information about who directed it and then i've never been able to find it again anywhere. anyway, it was about this painter, the film was about him painting this small fruit-tree out in the garden. the whole film was filmed there in the garden, while he was painting and while various people came to visit him and sit by him and watch him work and discuss with him all things possible. and all the while you watched the painting getting a little bit more ready and finished, bit by bit.
and ok i know it might sound a bit boring when told like that but honestly, it was one of the best movies i ever saw, amazing...
and yet i have no idea how to find it!  :?

Right... this is a real hard thing to do! But here goes!
1. Dragonslyer
2. Blade Runner
3. Legend
4. Dark Crystal/Labyrinth - (this is a bit of a cheat including the two here!)
5. Marie Antoinette
6. Close Encounter's Of The Thrid Kind
7. Starship Troopers - (which I really believe is a very under-rated film! It's pure genius!!)

I wish you hadn't restricted it to just 7! As you can see I cheated anyway! I should mention here, (as this is the appropriate place to do so) I really love anything by Tim Burton & Ridley Scott... I didn't include a Burton film, as I love them all equally and thus I couldn't decide which to include in the list!

1. Charlie and the Chocolate factory (both versions)
2. A Clockwork Orange
3. Lost In Translation
4. Fight Club
5. Drop Dead Fred
6. Young Frankenstein
7. Everything you wanted to know about sex (but were afraid to ask)

As you can see, slightly twisted, but hey who cares?!..... ive left so many out aswell.

I love Tim Burtons stuff, even though theres only one in there. His directing and the way he makes films look is just genius

And Gene Wilder has to be one of the best actors ever!

The soundtracks in most of those are great aswell  8)

Marika, you should take a look to Lolita. The music is also absolutely awesome, and sad. Really an awesome movie.
