Fritz Lang Germany, 1927

Easily one of the most iconic films ever made, Fritz Lang’s classic future shock is still thrilling. A propulsive epic and mind-blowing visual symphony, Lang’s deeply influential vision is both the foundation of sci-fi cinema and a time-honored gateway to the expressive wonders of silent film.


Edward Yang Taiwan, 1986

Renowned director Edward Yang (Yi Yi) refracts the changing society and culture of Taipei in this classic of New Taiwanese Cinema, which revitalized the nation’s cinematic landscape in the 1980s. An enigmatic puzzle full of Yang’s prescient vision, this is a film to watch again and again.


Dziga Vertov Soviet Union, 1929

Dziga Vertov’s masterpiece remains a visually thrilling chronicle of modern life, and an ode to the power of film. A lucid mixture of documentary and avant-garde techniques, it’s a radical redefinition of cinema’s boundaries—essential viewing that is just as groundbreaking many years later.


Alexander Hammid, Maya Deren United States, 1943

A landmark short film from the godmother of the American avant-garde, Maya Deren. No other film describes the illogical mystery of dreams quite like this one—its miraculous images are potent enough to find a way into your own dreamscape.


F.W. Murnau Germany, 1922

You don’t need sound to be terrified! With its eerie and decaying gothic atmosphere, and Max Schreck’s unforgettable, otherworldly vampire, F.W. Murnau’s Expressionist horror masterpiece seems to get increasingly disturbing as time passes. Cloaked in light and shadow, it creates a symphony of dread.


Buster Keaton, Clyde Bruckman United States, 1926

Regularly hailed as one of the greatest comedies ever committed to celluloid, The General is silent slapstick at its peak, leading to a wild climactic chase scene that will forever be in the record books.


Yorgos Lanthimos Greece, 2009

A festival hit nominated for an Academy Award, Dogtooth is a darkly comic insight into a surreal world of parental control gone mad. As shocking and brutal as it is humorous, elegant and entertaining, Greek auteur Giorgos Lanthimos’ film is bold and inventive cinema.
