Part three of my 100 one-sentence-movie reviews (1960-1984).
In this Ingmar Bergman comedy the Devil has gotten a sty in his eye, and all because of a woman keeping her virtue until wedding night - but that's probably easy to fix if we send Don Juan in the form of the handsome Jarl Kulle to Earth to seduce her!
Audrey Hepburn plays the flighty, colorful New York socialite Holly Golightly who takes an interest in a young man who has moved into her apartment building, after Truman Capote's novel.
Bette Davis is freaky as hell in this psychological thriller about two sisters living together in a house where envy and madness tear on their relationship, and of course the fact that one sister is helpless in a wheelchair on the second floor.
The tagline "You may not believe in ghosts, but you cannot deny terror" says everything about the horrifying experience watching this film is - you never know what is actually happening, if something is happening and if it's only in the mind.
Colorful French musical about 17 year old Geneviève, living with her widowed mother who owns an umbrella shop in Cherbourg and being crazily in love with a young man her mother won't let her marry.
Weird British humor about the 1960's hit makers The Beatles being chased around by fans and teasing poor Ringo for his big nose.
A mod London photographer believes that he has accidentally photographed a murder, so he starts jumping between solving the mystery and having colorful photo shoots with chic and mostly naked models.
A couple consisting of Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy are forced to face their preconceptions when their daughter brings home a black fiancée in this lovely film with fine actors and a brilliant script.
Based on a true story this film shows us what happens when a widower with ten children marries a widow with eight, and with another baby on the way they all must live under the same roof.
A touching film about a male Texas prostitute (Jon Voight) and his sick friend (Dustin Hoffman) struggling to stay alive on the streets of New York City.
On the surface a simple story about an innocent woman being destroyed by a hypocrite of a stepfather (and after her mother's death, lover) - under the surface pure Buñuel surrealism - and only that director would dare to amputate the beautiful Catherine Deneuve!
As one of the most iconic films of the 1970's, A Clockwork Orange takes place in future Britain where we meet the young man Alex, who is addicted to sex and ultra-violence, but goes to prison to go through a rehabilitation that destroys his dear Beethoven for him.
The sickest film I have on this list of 100 movies - but it is so sick, gruesome, filthy and God-knows-how-to-describe-it, that I simply can't avoid adoring this John Waters camp legend.
An elegant con-movie set in the 1930's, about a man seeking revenge for his murdered partner in crime, and finds the right man to help him - con-master Henry Gondorff.
Mel Brooks' story about Dr. Frankenstein's grandson who inherits his grandfather's castle and repeats his experiments - a hilarious spoof on the horror film genre.
Oh, how I love the British - and this is British humor times a hundred in a comedy classic you must never foresee.
In the dirty inner-city Rome four generations of a family live crowded together and do their best to be filthy - a completely wonderful Italian comedy, with an unsuspected kind of humor.
Woody Allen's comic masterpiece that even himself never could compete with - an original and warm film about the self-destructive Jewish comedian Alvy Singer who messes up all relationships he comes near, even with the love of his life - Annie Hall, played by a wonderful Diane Keaton.
The second in the George A. Romero's zombie trilogy, where our heroes try to survive the zombie attacks in a shopping center - a funny satire on commercialism and a lot of gore!
A disturbing German film about a boy in the 1930's who was born with full intellect, and decides at the age of three to stop growing - he then enjoys himself by beating on a tin drum and scream so loud that glass shatter.
A family takes care of a hotel at a by winter unavailable location, and after a while the man of the family chases his wife and child with an ax - because we all know that "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy".
An homage to classic adventure movies, and a hell of a great one itself, with Indiana Jones equipped with a whip and charms.
Ingmar Bergman's last motion picture is a masterpiece about a high society Swedish family celebrating Christmas, an evil, slimy priest that steals the custody of the children and mentally destroys their mother, an awesome Jarl Kulle as Gustav Adolf, and a lot of spooky stuff - but refuse to see anything other than the 4 hour version, too many superb and important scenes are cut out of the 2 hour version.
The meaning of life according to Monty Python with their usual weird manners - and we do get an answer to what it is!
A Milos Forman film about Mozart, told by his aging rival and forgotten composer Salieri - such an emotional and grand film with the magnificent music of Mozart himself is hard to beat.
