40 Movies That Filmmaking Duo Raj and DK Want Everyone To Watch

Trainspotting (1996)
It's a first-of-its-kind film in terms of style — breaking framing and mise en scene norms. It also broke typical plot templates — you don't expect that third act for that film.

Gol Maal (1979)
In South India we were getting the most mainstream masala 'hero' Hindi films. With Gol Maal we realised you could make films like this too, which are as entertaining and yet the hero is not a hero. It was an eye opener.

Fargo (1996)
Our introduction to the genius of the Coen Brothers. We loved the film for its dark humour, its strange, eccentric tone, and for its portrayal of the American midwest. (Coincidentally we were both living in the midwest at that time.)

Pulp Fiction (1994)
Pulp Fiction is probably on everyone's list, but still, it can't not be on our list. The film took dark humour to the edge.

The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
Scorsese suddenly found the actor that he was looking for after De Niro — Leonardo DiCaprio. It's possibly the greatest director-actor pairings.
