THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE (1948)

A story where three very grizzled dudes find gold in the wilderness and it drives them all nuts. A manly man’s parable about greed.

CHINATOWN (1974)

The definitive neo-noir, a movie I love, now inextricably linked with the crimes of its director.

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.
