Some Of The Most Iconic Films Ever Made

Team FC

Stalker (1979) - YouTube

Stalker is famously known for having one of the most difficult productions in cinema history and possibly even causing Tarkovsky’s death. It stands with great irony however to Tarkovsky’s characters who are consummated with art and its destruction.

Oldboy (2003) - Amazon Prime Video

“Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Weep, and you weep alone.” Park Chan-wook’s 2003 thriller drama is one of those films that feels like it's been beamed right into your head from some evil world.

Seven Samurai (1954) - N/A

Chris Hedges has famously written, "War is the force that gives our life meaning." Akira Kurosawa's the Seven Samurai became the source of a genre that would flow through the rest of the century.

In the Mood for Love (2000) - MUBI

Housted as one of the best love stories of all time, Wong Kar-wai’s In the Mood for Love relishes in the astonishing nature of the ordinary. Here, there are no monologues, no drawn-out confessions, no ecstatic unions.

Pather Panchali (1955) - YouTube

Completed in 1955, Satyajit Ray's astonishing debut, Pather Panchali (the first part of the Apu trilogy) creates a wonderfully detailed picture of a family in a Bengali village.

Sholay (1975) - Amazon Prime Video

Sholay is a prime example of a masala film, which is to say no one genre, but many at once. Sholay stars two of the greatest's ever. There are many ways to achieve greatness, and the way of Sholay is with heroism, villainy, redemption, revenge, and true love.
