Oh, and while I'm in here: Coming Home (Ashby, 1978) 6.5
I thought the same thing when I wrote that, but let it go cause Will Ferrell is funny.
In hind site, it's prob rated a little too high. Not used to the 1-10 rating.
The movie Stranger than fiction is in No way shape or form even close to a Tarkovsky film.
I hope that clears things up.

Andrei Rublev - 10
Stalker - 10
The Sacrifice - 9
Mirror - 8.5
Solaris - 8.5
Nostalghia - 8
Ivan's Childhood - 8
Haven't seen Stalker or Ivan's childhood. I will have to see Stalker if it is as good to you as Andrei Rublev. We agree on Nostalghia & Solaris.
IMO ~ The first 12 minutes of The Exorcist is some of the greatest film in American Cinema.
What did you think of Antonioni's The Passenger?
I'm actually watching this sometime in the next week. All I've seen thus far are:Originally Posted by skindnef

The Passenger (Antonioni) 9/10 for me. Visually near perfect cinematography by Luciano Tovoli . I think you'll really enjoy it. I was fortunate enough to get to see it recently in a theatre. Let me know what you think.
Zentropa is next for me because it's been too long.
Dude!? It's his only timeless piece of work thus far IMO.
A must see. Will never forget it.
Eraserhead or Lost Highway? Lynch fan?
Lost Highway. I'm a Lynch fan but less so than I was even a year ago, but I still have a copy of the book Lynch on Lynch on my dresser. I was able to see Inland Empire three times in theaters though. That was something.Originally Posted by skindnef
Oh, and Time of the Wolf (Haneke, 2003) - Not sure how I feel about this yet...
Dogville was a love it or hate it. I happened to love it, everyone I saw it with hated it. I would put The 5 obstructions over Dogville on a "best of" Von Trier list, with Zentropa/Europa at the top of the list. Did you like The 5 obstructions?
So IYO what's better than the first 12 minutes of the Exorcist in American Cinema?
Pretty much anything notable that the following directors have shot:Originally Posted by skindnef
Just watched the Director's Cut of Kingdom of Heaven, its sooo much better then the regular cut. It has an hour of extra footage and added subplot.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall - 8/10, Much lulz were had.
The Million Dollar Hotel - 8/10, A beautiful movie with wonderful fucked up performances by the main characters.
Tiny Machines: The Feynman Lecture on Nanotechnology 8/10
The Wild Blue Yonder ~Herzog 6/10
Night At The Roxbury
If I was you I'd hate me too...
