601) The Housemaid ( 1960 ) ( Lucas )

This list is alive ... and after watching The Housemaid for the first time, I realize that there are many many more movie that I have yet to see that could land here ..

Again, 1960 .. Quite possibly the greatest year for horror ( ? )

The Housemaid is considered by some to be the greatest Korean film of all time ... Having now seen it, I can understand why ... And as is the case with most all my favorite horror films, the element of sadness is abundant .... brilliant film, and fascinating to me because it taps into an aspect of culture that is not there in films from English speaking countries ..... As far as the best of 1960, The Housemaid is right there ...

602-- The Lady From Shanghai (1947). Another terrific directorial effort from Welles who also wrote the script and stars as a man accused of murder in this noir. Welles' wife who he was separated from at the time, Rita Hayworth plays the Lady of the title and Everett Sloane her husband.

603) The Saint (1997)  ( Rutlefan )

I was never much of a Val Kilmer fan before this, having found his characters in Real Genius and Top Gun really annoying back in the day, but this movie flipped those feelings and made me somewhat of a fan. Fun movie and cool '90s soundtrack, especially the theme song by Orbital and 6 Underground by the Sneaker Pimps.

605) Pump Up the Volume (1990)

I've been meaning to add this to the list pretty much since I first started posting titles to it. I guess maybe what prevented me was what others might think of it but to heck with that. A long time ago some hipster moron even made fun of me for liking it. I admit that on the surface it might seem like another teen movie but there's really something pretty deep going on and I think what this movie has to say is pretty important. There really aren't that many movies I can think of off the top of my head about alienation and isolation but this is one of them. A big part of it is sort of like the Rush song "subdivisions" on the big screen. People talk about the Breakfast Club but in my opinion this one is just as good(if not then it's pretty close). Maybe a little bit of a guilty pleasure but to be honest I really don't feel that guilty for liking it and it reminds me of my struggles of fitting and being heard and taken seriously when I was younger. Kind of a youth rebellion movie but a really good one that has been unfairly buried over the years. https://en.wikipedia...he_Volume_(film)

606)  Badlands/Natural Born Killers (goose)

Can't believe I haven't listed these yet.  Like the Terrence Malick film Badlands, the Oliver Stone effort is based on the exploits of Charlie Starkweather and Caril Ann Fugate, although much more loosely.  Stone was highly criticized for his approach to the film, which some took as glorifying the violence it parodies.  Malick's Badlands features a brilliant performance by Martin Sheen as the Starkweather character.
