Try These:

1. PICCADILLY -Great Silent from 1929, starring the luminous Anna May Wong!
2. The RIVER - Criterion, Jean Renoir's gorgeous India set version of the novel
3. LEGONG, DANCE of the VIRGIN-part doc, part travelouge, all Bali, amazing!
4. ED WOOD - If u dont have this RUN...get it now! GO!! Why r u still here??
5. PARIS, TEXAS - Wim Wenders best, Harry Dean Stanton's best AND
Nastasja Kinski!
6. HELL's ANGELS - Howard Hughes epic, for the epic dog fights. People died!
7. YOUTH OF THE BEAST -Seijin Suzuki! Japan 60's supercool! Criterion baby!
8. ONE FROM The HEART - Coppola's underrated mess, with Tom Waits in 5.1
surround AND (see above) Nastassja Kinski!
9. SKY CAPTAIN and the WORLD of TOMORROW - Awesome effects, cool-ass
popcorn movie!
10.MILLENIUM MAMBO - Hypnotically beautiful film, starrin the hypnotically
beautiful Shu Qi. Quiet and mesmerising, let the film wash over you.

Oh, and Shu Qi is the new Nastassja Kinski!

I highly recommend American Friend and Elegy to Violence (Fighting Elegy), by Wenders and Suzuki, respectively.
