    Night and Fog. Saw it as a child in school. It is a very graphic 1955 black and white documentary on the horrors of Nazi concentration camps but in my opinion a must-see so we don't forget...

    The rest of you have covered almost everything I would have mentioned. Not sure that I saw "In Bruges" listed or "Diva." Both are very good. I had to watch Diva about three times to make sense of it, but it was worth it.

    Skydy, totally agree that "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" is a must see. It gives some real historical perspective to race relations in this country in the 60s.

    Oh yea, and for something really campy, "The Fearless Vampire Killers" otherwise known as "Excuse me but you have your teeth in my neck."

    And "Harvey" with Jimmy Stewart is one of my favorites.

    Also, "The Station Master." I think that's the name of it. Really good.

    I don't really think there are movies that EVERYONE must see before they die. People have different tastes and when someone watches a film or TV show or artistic performance or sees a work of art, it's not guaranteed that they will interpret or take away from it what someone else does. For example, some people - mostly older people - think Lawrence of Arabia is a masterpiece. Many think it's a long and bloated movie because they grew up with Star Wars.

    Three that I have watched countless times and will probably watch many more times in my lifetime:

    Wings of Desire (obviously!)
    Sex, Lies and Videotape
    Mississippi Masala (don't let anyone tell you Denzel never did a sex scene!)

    Beyond that it's a tossup, although I watch "The Quiet Man" every St. Patrick's day in honor of my late brother. It was his all time favorite.

    I agree with Lex, though. Movies are a matter of taste. People watch them for different reasons. Interesting how many times "The Shawshank Redemption" shows up here. I have personally never met a woman who liked it, nor a man who disliked it.
    Only part of me worries...the other part doesn't believe in it.

    Well, when you look at it, The Shawshank Redemption is a Broseph movie. Ironically by Warner Bros. I own it but have never really watched it in great detail. I don't even think I've opened the Blu-Ray come to think of it but most of my movies remain unopened until I get around to watching them.

    Broseph = like Bromance? I have never made it all the way thru that movie. Don't like prions movies in general.

    But a lot of people probably don't care for 3 hour German movies about angels falling to earth to pursue trapeze artists!
