NORTH BY NORTHWEST (1959)

Alfred Hitchcock and Cary Grant invented the James Bond movie three years before it was a thing.

MADCHEN IN UNIFORM (1931)

Maybe the first feature film dealing with themes of homosexuality, it feels surprisingly fresh today.

DO THE RIGHT THING (1989)

Controversial in 1989, this may be the most relevant movie you’ll see in 2020.

THE DEER HUNTER (1978)

Called a “nightmare” and “endless” by its own studio, it ended up winning Best Picture and being the first big hit movie about the Vietnam War.

THE APARTMENT (1960)

Winning performances set against stark corporate modernism highlight a fun comedy, albeit one with a surprising amount of attempted suicides.

THE MALTESE FALCON (1941)

A movie that launched legendary careers and an entire classic genre of film, and is also pretty fun in its own right.
