You call yourself a Cinephile, yet you haven't seen this? You disgust me, pig! - Cine-Nerd films I'm ashamed to have not seen - Round 1

I like to subscribe to the whole cinephile identity cause I am a big fat nerd. To be a card carrying member of this club there is a loose canon of films that you are supposed to have seen before you can establish your screen cred.

I have seen many but there are a few key films I have not. Sometimes this is because of availability. Sometimes it is because I anticipate that they will be slow and difficult and therefore are the equivalent of eating your cinematic veggies. Sometimes, I just keep forgetting to check them out.

This list is to give me a concrete goal to tick some of these films off. Afterwards, I will take stock and see if watching these films has profoundly changed my life or not.
