Not counting croatian films and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, The Return (2003) and Faust (1994) are my favourites. Besides them there's Come and see (1985), Grave of the Fireflies (1988), The Illusionist (2010), A Jester's Tale (1965) and Harakiri (1961).

Thanks, but I'm sure there would be plenty here, like yourself, with far more expansive lists than I ..... plus I just noticed I still somehow forgot to put Metropolis on it so God knows what else might also be missing This getting old lark really ain't up to much

Nah not really. I have pretty poor film knowledge of the early part of the last century. Wouldn't know where to start.

Agree about the getting old bit though.
