I'm on a Fritz Lang kick. He'll be popping into my list around the end of the year.

I have eight Levinsons (Bugsy, Good Morning Vietnam, The Natural, Rain Man, Sphere, Tin Men, Wag the Dog and Young Sherlock Holmes), but only six Kubricks (2001, Barry Lyndon, A Clockwork Orange, Dr. Strangelove, Eyes Wide Shut and The Shining).

I've seen the two Batmen and The Lost Boys. Not anxious to see them again, or any of his other films.

Correction: I've seen at least part of Phantom of the Opera.

Awww man, I really wanted to see that. Bergman and horror sounds like an interesting combination.

You can watch it for yourself, but I found it tedious at best.

Fritz Lang could join my list. Alas, I count Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler as one film, so I'm at nine. (I do count "Die Niebelungen" as two films.)

The films are "The Weary Death", "Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler", "Die Niebelungen: The Death of Siegfried," "Die Niebelungen: Kriemhild's Revenge," Metropolis," "Spies,"" Woman in the Moon," "M," and "The Testament of Dr. Mabuse."

That's an amazing collection of flims. Even the weakest, ("Spies") is a good film that looks forward to James Bond and other spy films. I'd probably have to pick "M" or "Metropolis" as the best, but "Weary Death" and the Dr. Mabuse films are amazing.

I have Fury DVR'ed and should be able to watch it sometime soon. Nice to hear some good things about it.

How was Ministry of Fear? Criterion is releasing that in a few months, and the cover is fantastic, but I've never heard anyone say anything (positive or negative) about the movie itself.

I enjoyed it. It's a war-time suspense story about a guy who mistakenly wins a cake at a fair and finds all sorts of people really, really want the cake back, and not just because it was made with real eggs. It's based on a novel by Graham Greene and reminded me a bit of "The 39 Steps" and "Saboteur." Not major Lang, but fun.

I've been stuck on 8 for both Milos Forman and Philip Kaufman for the longest time. For Forman, I've seen everything except "Black Peter," "Taking Off," "The People Vs. Larry Flynt," and "Goya's Ghosts." For Kaufman, I've seen everything except "Goldstein," "Fearless Frank," "Rising Sun," and "Twisted." I have no interest in seeing the latter 2 films for either director. And since they've yet to be released on DVD or Blu-ray (though Criterion's been promising a release of "Taking Off" for nearly 2 years now :| ), I'm not sure where to see the former 2 films by both directors. Suggestions?

I saw "Taking Off" a long time ago and barely remember it. It's a generation gap comedy that was very much a product of the period (circa 1970) that has a scene where a runaway girl comes home to find the parents have gotten high and stripped (I think in an effort to understand their kids). It seemed a bit strained to me, but the Cannes Film Festival liked it

Turns out I hadn't seen Cheyenne Autumn, and I'm slogging through it, so Ford may stay at 9. One more Significant Statement will just about do me in. I did like the attempted cavalry charge into a brush fire. I just wish it had consumed Richard Widmark.

This was Ford's sympathetic Indian movie, but good intentions don't make a good movie.
