I gave it a 4th place vote on memory of stark, angular, deep deep blacks.

As good as these, as well as missing ones like White Nights, Kanal and others are, this really should be between The Cranes Are Flying and The Bridge on the River Kwai. Amazing camera movement and shadows vs perfect framing and composition.

I switch out Kwai for Throne of Blood.

I'm disappointed to not see Funny Face, but these are good choices.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.
