O.k. Let's see your favourites.

I've just been tidying up my DVD collection after moving and this is still number one for me.

The filmimg/cinematography is superb, and the "actors actor" Warren Oats makes it. No CGI either. 

Vanishing Point is another. The late 90's remake is unwatchable.

Fabulous cinematography by Tonino Delli Colli, brilliant score by Ennio Morricone.

'A Clockwork Orange', adapted from the novel by Antony Burgess. I saw this this film about 4 times in the first week it came out in 1971. My nickname at my first job was 'Droog', based on the Russian slang used as everday speak in the film. (Droog, or друг  means 'friend')   Stanley Kubrick (the director) then decided to ban his own film in 1973, after several court cases where the film was blamed for inciting violence, and it wasn't available again in the UK until Kubrick died in 1999 when it was aired, uncut, on Sky Box Office in 2001. It also starred Malcolm McDowell as the films main character, Alex. It's rumoured that Kubrick chose McDowell after seeing his performance in 'If'.

I saw Vanishing Point so many times! Easy Rider as well. If, the book and If, the film, both great. I still have the book I stole from the school library :blush:! A Clockwork Orange, scary. I was too young to see it, but the local fleapit allowed anyone in. Too young equated to the wrong reaction, just wanted to hit someone when I came out! I remember at Putney Fair and the High Street, gangs of CO clones, very strange. Even stranger that I knew some of them.

It was an age of graphically violent films, which was a new phenomenon. Straw Dogs and Soldier Blue were both great films in very different ways. 

Some great foreign films, which have cult status I have, are the incomparable 'Old Boy', 'Amores Perros', 'Maria full of grace', which is divine, 'Bangkok Dangerous' and 'l'appartement'.

An all time  favourite is 'Sideway's'. I just felt sad they never filmed the other two books in the series. The books are laugh out loud hysterical at times, whereas the film is full of pathos.

If anyone can source a genuine copy of the full-length, unedited version of "(The Legend of) Suriyothai" at a reasonable price please let me know.  I've been hunting for this unsuccessfully for ages.

In the meantime, here's a genuine cult gem from my collection.

Those T/A's have a bit of cult following as well
