#172 King Vidor Ranked List
Not done with Agnes Varda, not even close, but since I don't want to binge her filmography I thought it might be best to balance her out with the next name(s) on the list. Not knowing that next up is King Vidor.
I'm not anti-Vidor. He works in the classic Hollywood style, The Crowd is damn near a masterpiece and he was nominated 5 times for Best Director. However, having seen most of his popular films, I only like about a third of them. He has a number of titles I'm open to seeing and a couple that have been on my Watchlist. Except for his films being weighty fare, a good list to balance Varda with.
(1931)War and Peace
(1956): I endlessly debate if my first viewing of W&P should be this or the 7-hour Russian film MartinTeller loves so much. This one has Henry Fonda and Audrey Hepburn and it's half as long. I'll go unabridged next time.
(1931)The Stranger's Return
(1933)Lightning Strikes Twice
(1940)H.M. Pulham, Esq.
