Dennis Schwartz's "Masterpieces"

In researching "what to watch next" (an eternal question, of which I know my fellow Letterboxd users are well aware), I often find myself reading a Dennis Schwartz review on Rotten Tomatoes.

So, given that his opinion has been so helpful to me in the past, I decided to publish the list of films he considers to be the "crème de la crème".

This list is compiled directly from his list at this location: homepages.sover.net/%7Eozus/masterpieces.htm on the date of 2017/08/06.
The list I present here is in the same order - alphabetic.

I might do some more lists for other critics of this nature for which good source material is available - check my profile if interested.
