How approachable are these to a megapleb? I'm trying to start small.
Come on, I'm actually asking. This is your chance to shove your "superior taste" in everyone's faces.
they shoot pictures don't they
their top 10 list is pretty much the definition of where everybody more or less 'starts'; not to pick on those films or ensue they're lowly, but they're generally well-known and widely received and inoffensive
also stop using these faggy fucking words if you're trying to actually talk about movies
1. Vertigo 1958
2. Citizen Kane 1941

Mouchette (Robert Bresson, 1967)
Woman of the Dunes (Hiroshi Teshigahara, 1964)
you'll watch better movies than these after getting used to older or less popular conventions, but my 'watch these first' list would be
A Space Odyssey
A Woman Under the Influence
Fast, Cheap and Out of Control
many runners up:
Empire Strikes Back
Synecdoche, New York
Only Yesterday (japan)
lots and lots. when you get comfortable with these you can easily watch the movie on the better lists above
1. Whispers in the Wind
2. To Each His Own
3. Put It Where It Doesn't Belong
4. My Pipes Need Cleaning
5. All Tit-Fucking Volume 8
6. Ass-Worshipping Rim-Jobbers
7. Cum Buns III
8. Men Alone II: The KY Connection
9. Pink Pussy Lips
10. Huge Black Cocks with Pearly White Cum
If you're megapleb start with Bergman, Bresson, and Kieslowski. Bergman is perfect for beginning to appreciate cinema. He has very simple and eloquent cinema language that evolves into a nice depth.
I'd start with Wild Strawberries, The Seventh Seal, and Persona. Then if you appreciate these you must watch Cries and Whispers, Winter Light, and Fanny and Alexander.
Start wherever you want really. Find a director that sounds interesting to you and if you like him watch whatever in his filmography is acclaimed. Work your way into an understanding of cinema and make your way to Tarkovsky. He's sort of the shifting point between simple and complex plotless cinema.
Especially that last one is a good one because it's ripped directly from Tarkovsky's top ten list. Sight and Sound is an alright place to look, but it can be boring and lacking of a certain "liveliness"
>mfw this list is anything but patrician
>mfw half of these movies really are GOAT in their respective genres
>mfw they are all
I'll give you a list, but you have to tell me what you see in this first
1. The General
3. Passion of Joan of Arc
4. 2001: A Space Odyssey
5. Sans Soleil
7. Tokyo Story
8. Seven Samurai
9. Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant
10. La Dolce Vita
My best attempt at things off the top of my head that will be a) better than what you're probably watching, b) well-known enough that they are worth watching first, and c) approachable.
It's worth watching, yes. But bear in mind that even when it was at the top of Sight and Sound polls, it only appeared on like 15% of the lists, so it's not like it's the unanimous greatest film ever made.
charles foster kane is legitimately an interesting character
neat camera tricks and set innovation isn't why everybody still knows about it, it's actually a very good story to boot
1. The Shawshank Redemption
2. Batman Begins
3. The Dark Knight
5. Pulp Fiction
6. Fight Club
7. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
8. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
9. The Lord of the Ring: The Return of the King
10. The Matrix
These are the definitive 10 most entry level great films. It is where every cinephile begins.
I made a Heistcore mosiac a long time back.
Just work your way through the TSPDT top 1000.
I'd personally recommend:
The Rules of the Game
Picnic at Hanging Rock
Those arent the best, but that's a good variety of different genres from different periods from different countries.
I like that you made this.. but you didn't put the fucking names in! I'm sorry, but it's useless! You either have to crop, google search, and pray; or just never use it! What an awful design flaw!
Can i have some zombie core? I'm not looking to be a patrician; I just watched the Romero movies and quite enjoyed them. I see there's a LOT of zombie movies out there but I don't know which to watch. Any recommendations?
I'm trying to think of some notable South American directors, I'm having a difficult time thinking of any. Who should I be thinking of? I can think of plenty of Spanish directors.
Left to right:
>Set it Off
>Ocean's 11 (Remake)
>Real Human Bean
>Place Beyond the Pines
>I actually can't remember... Sorry.
>Dog Day Afternoon
And Inception isn't that good nigga.
Futhermore, I'm not necessarily asking for a chart, just personal recommendations would be fine.
Federico Blume, Armando Robles Godoy, Luis Figeroa, Ramón Pereda, Gabriel García Moreno... If you see any film made by these guys you can claim to be the ultimate patrician.
Keep in my mind that you might not find all films from these directors on the internet.
Not many people will be able to fulfill your request because 50%-75% of good cyberpunk movies are east-asia (Japan, Korea) produced, and never brought to USA, so they'd have to know multiple languages.
I have made your chart not useless, you're welcome.
Just watch this pleb trash and call it a day
You'll fit in with 90% of the plebs on this board
I found another one that /tv/ made me make after that one didn't suffice.
Reservoir Dogs revolves around a diamond heist gone wrong.
Drive is about a pawn store heist gone wrong.
What's the problem? I mean, yeah they're about different things too, but the revolve around heists.
The ones with posters where you can't tell the title are:
Dead Man's Letters
The Face of Another
On the Silver Globe
You should hear mine
>those that mean post about /lit/, /a/ or /mu/ on here(/tv/) are the ones that left /v/ and then were laughed out of said board and forced to come to /tv/ because everyone is nice to new posters with bad taste
It gets proven over and over, but sometimes /v/ is either /sp/ or /b/
