Watch This

If you like looking at things, look at these.

Andrei Rublev
Notre Musique
Bringing Out the Dead

Only watch these if you enjoy looking at things. The last three are available at Blockbuster. (Godard, Kurosawa, and Scorsese.) The first two, forget it, the day Blockbuster carries a Tarkovsky film is...the day...something very unlikely happens. These are all popular films by well-known directors, though it's apparent to me that writer Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver) is the real force behind Bringing Out the Dead, which is probably the most accessible film on this list for American viewers.
