Some of my favorite films. By no means a “definitive list” (I can only upload 10 images at a time lol), nor are they in any order. But they’re definitely standouts to me nonetheless.
From top-down: Vivre Sa Vie, 2001, The Face of Another, On The Waterfront, Solaris, Le Samourai, The Third Man, The Cranes Are Flying, Foreign Correspondent, Sweet Smell of Success
I’ll add more later

Eiji Yoshikawa’s epic ‘Musashi’ is a must read for anyone interested in Tokugawa-era Japan. A fictionalized account of the life of Miyamoto Musashi as he travels all across Japan at the end of the Battle of Sekigahara, meeting a variety of characters, experiencing the growing pains from youth to adulthood and culminating in a final confrontation with his nemesis, Sasaki Kojirō, at Ganryū Island.
A pretty cool book all-round
Sadly, some people don’t grok Heinlein’s book… I grok it
