Recommended Posts

edit, already changed my mind a few times over this list


Will come back to it, 


only 12 Angry Men, Schindler's List and Dr. Strangelove are certainties I reckon. Right after the promptings of other suggestions I'm still cheating on the number count.


edit again, well i might as well play by the rules and cut it down to ten. Though I am quite annoyed.




12 Angry Men

Dr. Strangelove

Schindler's List

L'Armee des Ombres

North by Northwest

Apocalypse Now


Batman Begins


To Kill A Mockingbird
