The Zeroville List

Zeroville is simply a must-read novel for cinephiles. This is not an exhaustive list since the book mentions dozens upon dozens of films. I've limited myself to the movies that define and shape the main character of Vikar or otherwise have some significance in the story. Some films are not mentioned by name but only by certain clues and I had to put two and two together to figure out what movie the author meant. If you read Zeroville you would probably want to watch or re-visit some of these.
