1. le voyage dans la lune (a trip to the moon) (1902) - silent movie usually among the first listed in the most important movies ever. in terms of visuals its really something. a smashing pumpkins video was a copy of this.
2. the good the bad the ugly (amazing, sergio leone is a qualified cinematic genius)
3. citizen kane (a lot of people don't take to it, or don't get it, but its really incredible and laid some serious groundwork - way ahead of its time. you gotta see it sooner or later anyway.)
4. psycho, vertigo, the 39 steps, north by northwest (all by hitchcock, all really really good)
5. birth of a nation (1915) (this is for those that either want to see one of the most racist movies ever, or want to learn about film, its long and exhausting but you'll know about an important film)
7. Taxi Driver. Visually hypnotic, dark, mysterious, pretty bad ass actually. its where the famous "you lookin at me" line comes from me
8. Easy Rider (really good movie, historically important, with a style of production that you most likely haven't seen before. watch the dvd extras as theres some interesting stories behind the production of this one)
9. Apocalypse Now (need i say more)
10. The Shining, Clockwork Orange, Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Lolita (getting to know Kubrick is fun and easy. Provacative in the best senses, while often profound)
11. Ben Hur ( i haven't seen it yet but it won an unprecidented 11 academy awards. one of the hugest movies ever)
meh i'm tired of thinking, theres a ton more that i can't think of at this moment and even tons more that i've never seen. but these are all amazing movies that anyone who's interested in film needs to see.
