I've not seen Ran. I've heard good things about it though.

Cinema Paradiso is my #9! It's in fact the film that first got me into movies and served as a gateway into foreign films as well. The...

Alright, this is the first I've heard of Late Spring and Woman in the Dunes. I've heard of Das Boot, Ikiru and Andrei Rublev, but I haven't seen any of them yet.

La Strada and Grave of the Fireflies are both films I haven't seen, but I should see them. No question.

Speaking of Fireflies, my one big regret about accidental omissions is similarly themed. ...

Between Mirror, Knife in the Water, Vampyr and Roma, I've seen none of them.
