My ranking so far:

The Red Shoes
A Matter of Life and Death (extremely close between these first two)
The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp
Black Narcissus
The 49th Parallel
I Know Where I'm Going
A Canterbury Tale
The Tales of Hoffmann

Really liked/loved all of them. More people should watch these.

(I have The Battle of the River Plate, Ill Met by Moonlight and They're a Weird Mob all here waiting to be watched.)
