BELLE DE JOUR (1967)

Luis Buñuel deftly portrays the inner sexual fantasy life of a beautiful Parisian woman in a way that the movies really hadn’t before.

THE SOUND OF MUSIC (1965)

You know almost every song, but wow is this not actually a good movie. This is probably Christopher Plummer’s most famous role, but he also hated it.

BONNIE AND CLYDE (1967)

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Watch Party of this seminal 1967 counterculture classic about Depression-era bank robbers.

8 ½ (1963)

Federico Fellini couldn’t figure out how to make a movie and made a movie about not being able to make a movie. I’m still trying to figure it out.

2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (1968)

Kubrick’s Science Fiction masterpiece is more of a grand artistic statement than a movie. I love it so much.

DR. STRANGELOVE OR: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB (1964)

A spectacular, hilarious comedy about the end of the world.

SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS (1964)

I unreservedly love this nutso sci-fi mashup, despite it being a routine entry on “worst movies of all time” lists.

GUESS WHO’S COMING TO DINNER (1967)

A lightish drama about interracial marriage that came out the same year it became legal nationwide. But is it a good movie?

MIDNIGHT COWBOY (1969)

It earned an X-rating for its “homosexual frame of reference,” but I mostly found unrelentingly depressing.
