Oh, you have plenty to see that year, that's really nice. Here are a few of my faves and as opposed to the last years my top 3 on this list would actually all be in my overall top 5 and maybe all my seven listed here maybe in my top 10.
1. The Flight of the Phoenix (Robert Aldrich) 2. The Hill (Sidney Lumet) 3. Compartiment Tueurs (Costa-Gavras) 4. Cincinnati Kid (Norman Jewison) 5. Ship of Fools (Stanley Kramer)
1. Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines, or How I flew from London to Paris in 25 Hours 11 minutes - One of those goofy race comedy epics that were so popular at the time. In my opinion, this is the best of them. If nothing else, we get to see Goldfinger in old-timey swimwear. Mrrroooow.
2. King Rat - Grim POW film about a man who rises to power as a prisoner. George Segal is at a career best here.
3. The Saragossa Manuscript - A three hour long art film comedy that seems like a mix between Monty Python and the Holy Grail and a Bergman movie. It's pretty fun stuff.
4. The Agony and the Ecstasy - I really ought to read the novel, it's one of my mom's favorites. But this movie is an engaging piece and one of the few 1960s studio spectacles that justifies its immense budget.
