2.  Pierrot Le Fou (1965)
3.  In a Lonely Place (1950)
4.  The Shop Around the Corner (1940)
5.  Rio Bravo (1959)
6.  Chinatown (1974)
7.  Blow Out (1981)
8.  Kings of the Road (1976)
9.  Shoot the Piano Player (1960)
10.  Letter from an Unknown Woman (1948)
11.  La chienne (1931)
12.  Heat (1995)
13.  Splendor in the Grass (1961)
14.  The French Connection (1971)
15.  McCabe & Mrs. Miller (1971)


  1. It's a great list here Jeffrey, and I am particularly thrilled to see LETTER FROM AN UNKNOWN WOMAN, LA CHIENNE and THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER here, though it's great to see some love for underappreciated gems like SPLENDOR IN THE GRASS and MC CABE AND MRS. MILLER. I'm tempted to dive in, but I'll need more time. I always find myself changing my mind daily when it's comes to an all-time list. Ha!

  2. Thanks, Sam! Yeah, I'd love to see your list if you get a chance. Always wonderful to hear from you.

  3. In A Lonely Place is an inspired choice if you ask me!!! That film would make my top ten as well.......M.Roca

  4. Thanks so much, M Roca. I completely agree, it's an absolutely incredible film. Good to have you here. Thanks!
