    Any of the major Ealing comedies and a few of their more serious stuff
    German Modernist 1920s and German Avant Garde 1970s
    Anything with Michael Caine or Clint Eastwood

    ...
    My best films in those groups

    A Clockwork Orange or Barry Lyndon - just can't decide.
    Young Frankenstein
    The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp
    Hobson's Choice
    Kind Hearts and Coronets / San Demetrio London
    Metropolis / Aquirre, The Wrath of God
    Get Carter / For a Few Dollars More

    Working a 4 'til midnight shift for the whole of April so a bit all over the place at the minute, but here are a few to start with until I think of more:

    The Red Shoes (1948)
    Vertigo (1958)
    Get Carter (1971)
    Blazing Saddles (1974)
    Spirited Away (2001)

    Feels like it, doesn't it? I've got the Director's Cut on DVD, but will stick with the original (the video of which is lurking in a cupboard somewhere) for sentimental reasons.

    Good to see some late '60s/early '70 British horror films here, such as Quatermass and the Pit, The Devil Rides Out and the Wicker Man. One of my favourites from this period is Witchfinder General and from the '50s, Night of the Demon.

    My mate, who was a lighting cameraman (named on credits too) at Thames TV always reckoned this was an unrecognised masterpiece, I like it but I'm not sure about masterpiece.
