Movies worth seeing

(A page lovingly named after the best video store ever, in my old neighborhood in Virginia Highlands)

Incomplete but growing...

Generally speaking, the best (those who wish to understand the complexities of David Dault would do well to consult the following)

  • Alphaville - My favorite movie. Jean-Luc Goddard takes on Sci Fi and Film Noir and makes everything dada
  • Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence - a meditation on war, love, regret, redemption, and honor. Starring Tom Conti, Ryuichi Sakamoto, "Beat" Takeshi and David Bowie
  • Cyrano de Bergerac (1950) - the Jose Ferrer version. The "aristocratic" Cyrano, over against the 1990 "proletarian" take of Depardieu

    Kung Fu films

  • Fist of Legend - Jet Li
  • The Legend - Jet Li
  • Master of the Flying Guillotine
  • Young Hero of Shaolin
