Summer Film List

After putting together a sizable summer reading list for myself, I thought I might try expanding my film horizons as well. The following is a list of films (in no particular order) that, given their descriptions on Netflix, Wikipedia, etc., I thought sounded good. If you've seen one or more of them and would like to leave a comment, feel free to do so below. If there's a film that you haven't seen but want to, and if you're in the KC area, stop by the house this summer and we'll watch it together.

PS--There is a running theme with this list; all but one of these ten films has something in common. Can you guess what it is?


1. Diabolique, 1955. Dir. Henri-Georges Clouzot

2. Kicking and Screaming, 1995. Dir. Noah Baumbach

3. L'Avventura, 1960. Dir. Michelangelo Antonioni

4. Man Bites Dog, 1992. Dir. Rémy Belvaux and André Bonzel

5. Paths of Glory, 1957. Dir. Stanley Kubrick

6. Ratcatcher, 1999. Dir. Lynne Ramsay

7. The Seventh Seal, 1957. Dir. Ingmar Bergman

8. Through a Glass Darkly, 1961. Dir. Ingmar Bergman

9. Walkabout, 1971. Dir. Nicolas Roeg

10. Network, 1976. Dir. Sidney Lumet
