OLYMPIA (1938)

Considered the first great film made about the Olympics, it is also, unfortunately, a highly effective piece of Nazi propaganda.

AGUIRRE, DER ZORN GOTTES (1972)

A descent into madness with conquistadors searching fruitlessly for El Dorado, that Werner Herzog dragged a full movie crew down the Amazon to shoot.

MADCHEN IN UNIFORM (1931)

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