PULP FICTION (1994)

Even if you have not watched it over and over, the people who made the movies you have, have.

ODD MAN OUT (1947)

I really enjoyed this dream-like film noir about a doomed man’s wanderings through Belfast.

CHUNGKING EXPRESS (1994)

This romance/crime/comedy/drama/other remains, a quarter century later, my definitive personal image of Hong Kong.

POINT BREAK (1991)

This is a very silly but somehow a very good action movie about robbing banks, surfing, skydiving, and many other things. At one point Patrick Swayze throws a dog at Keanu Reeves.

DOUBLE INDEMNITY (1944)

Perhaps the ultimate Film Noir, about two murderers who are not nearly as smart as they think they are.

THE FRENCH CONNECTION (1971)

The car chase is justly famous, but these days its cops with a “shoot first ask questions later” attitude are extremely hard to root for.

IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT (1967)

Sidney Poitier has to solve a murder in a small southern town that hates him. A great social movie but kind of a blah procedural.
