More Nonobvious Favorites

A few more 5-star films you maybe haven't heard of, perhaps. Art students, I know you've seen at least four of these.

  • Bicycle Thieves
  • Throne of Blood
  • Elevator to the Gallows
  • Fail-Safe
  • The Battle of Algiers
  • Le cercle rouge
  • Equus
  • Close-Up
  • Limbo
  • The Visitor


  • Battle of Algiers is an epic film. It is required watching in any type of COIN class (you can tell I went to military college).

    Throne of Blood is brilliant too. Toshiro Mifune is right crazy in that film.

    Both recommended, but I can only vouch for those two. Have not seen the others yet.

  • Thanks, added the few I haven't seen to my queue
