Rick's Picks: 7 Movies You Need to See

If you have not see this films, I will not take you seriously in an argument about films. I am the first to admit that I have yet to watch several cultural touchstone films, such as The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and Jaws, but these are the films that you must see or I will not respect your opinion when you tell me I didn't "understand" Social Network.

1) Terence Malick's Days of Heaven (1978)
2) Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Amores Perros (2000)
3) John Ford's The Searchers (1956)
4) David Lynch's Blue Velvet (1986)
5) Fritz Lang's Metropolis (1927)
6) Jean-Luc Godards' Contempt (1963)
7) David Fincher's Zodiac (2007)


  1. Metropolisssss! Man I need to rewatch that. It's been years and I feel like my film mentality has changed a lot since then.

  3. Wait, rewind, you haven't seen Jaws? How the hell did you get through film school without someone forcing you to watch Jaws??

    Also, not that it's a CONTEST--but I've seen all of these. Aaaaah, yep, no big deal.

  4. Siri, I'm really disappointed in Frank because you and I used to discuss Contempt during the filming of Look Both Ways. That also means, based on my deduction, that you are allowed to tell me that I did not "understand" Social Network.

  5. I really look forward to doing just that--gotta see it first though haha!
