John Kobal Presents the Top 100 Movies, Part II

Part Two of the list. I did not do well:

26. Andrei Rublev (1966) USSR

27. Fanny and Alexander (1982) Sweden

28. L’Atlante (1934) France

29. Viridiana (1961) Spain

30. Kind Hearts and Coronets (1949) UK

I liked this a lot but I don’t know if it should be on the list.

31. The Third Man (1949) UK

I liked this a lot and don’t know this couldn’t be on the list. I would put it higher.

32. Ugetsu Monogatari (1953) Japan

33. Zero De Conduite (1933) France

34. Ikiru (1952) Japan

35. Apu Trilogy (1958) India

36. The Band Wagon (1953) USA

37. Gone With the Wind (1939) USA

I have seen every Oscar-award winning movie of the year, from 1927/28’s Wings to 2003’s Return of the King, except for this.

38. The Maltese Falcon (1941) USA

Both a good movie and good book.

39. La Dolce Vita (1959) Italy/France

40. Hiroshima Mon Amour (1959) France/Japan

41. Roma, Citta Aperta ((1945) Italy

42. Touch of Evil (1958) USA

I wasn’t as thrilled with this one as most people but it has incredible shots.

43. L’Age D’Or (1930) France

44. La Passion of de Jeanne D’Arc (1927) France

From what I remember, this was shot in a very high percentage of close ups. I didn’t like it as much at the time but I can still see it in my mind.

45. The Seventh Seal (1956) Sweden

It’s been ages. I probably should watch this again.

46. Amarcord (1973) Italy/France

47. Sansho the Bailiff (1954) Japan

48. L’Aventura (1959) Italy/France

49. The General (1927) USA

I’m not a huge fan of Buster Keaton. I would have picked Sherlock Jr.

50. Life of O-Haru (1952) Japan
