I'll comment on your list instead of posting mine if you don't mind
All That Heaven Allows (Douglas Sirk, 1955) - Sirk's greatest stylistic experiment results in something so beautiful that it's impossible to take your eyes off the screen. Not necessarily his greatest material (although it's good!) but in this case the images are more than enough.
Au revoir les enfants (Louis Malle, 1987) - Pretty powerful stuff.
Barry Lyndon (Stanley Kubrick, 1975) - A complete and total masterpiece. Which includes Ryan O'Neal's unfairly maligned performance - the constant sadness in his eyes gives the film a special extra feeling.
Cries & Whispers (Ingmar Bergman, 1972) - Another masterpiece. My favorite Bergman used to be Persona (it was even my #1 of all time at some point) but now I think this is his finest hour. The goddamn cut at the very end gives me chills even when I'm just thinking about it.
The Innocents (Jack Clayton, 1961) - Among the greater horror films out there (not a genre I particularly like).
La piscine (Jacques Deray, 1969) - This one (just like A Bigger Splash) kinda sorta loses me in its second half when the deed happens but everything that precedes it is quite terrific indeed. That sun-drenched atmosphere, those character dynamics and above all...Romy Schneider
Lost in Translation (Sofia Coppola, 2003) - I recently rewatched it and didn't find myself loving it as much as I used to but it's still a very good movie. I'm especially fond of the Kyoto sequence. But I think my favorite Sofia is Marie Antoinette now.
Notorious (Alfred Hitchcock, 1946) - Terrific. Not necessarily my favorite Hitch but a great one nonetheless.
The Piano (Jane Campion, 1993) - Beautiful, amazing, magnificent! Sometimes directors have that one special movie that rises above the rest of their work and this one is definitely Campion's.
Picnic at Hanging Rock (Peter Weir, 1975) - Hauntingly brilliant and brilliantly haunting. The movie keeps pulling you to it just like the titular rock does with the girls.
Raise the Red Lantern (Zhang Yimou, 1991) - Excellent. Among Zhang's best.
Senso (Luchino Visconti, 1954) - Love it. Alida Valli's performance is a total all-timer and the film itself is just fantastic.
The Story of Adele H. (Francois Truffaut, 1975) - To me this movie is all Adjani. She's stupendous. The picture itself is very solid too but again - Adjani, Adjani, Adjani.
A Streetcar Named Desire (Elia Kazan, 1951) - Been meaning to rewatch this for a while now. At this point I can say that I absolutely love it. Kazan's ability to extract the best out of his actors is on full display here.
Tess (Roman Polanski, 1979) - Among Polanski's finest. All the more powerful because of the Sharon Tate connection.
So yeah, this is a truly LOVELY list full of LOVELY movies.
Of those I've only seen All That Heaven Allows, Barry Lyndon, Cries & Whispers and Picnic at Hanging Rock. I think the latter is my favorite of those (if not, it's Barry Lyndon) but I like them all a good deal.
A Clockwork Orange (Kubrick, 1971) Band of Outsiders (Godard, 1964) Dunkirk (Nolan, 2017) Fight Club (Fincher, 1999) Forrest Gump (Zemeckis, 1994) Inception (Nolan, 2010) Memento (Nolan, 2000) Pink Floyd: The Wall (Parker, 1982) Psycho (Hitchcock, 1960) Raiders of the Lost Ark (Spielberg, 1981) Saving Private Ryan (Spielberg, 1998) Scarface (De Palma, 1983) The Dark Knight (Nolan, 2008) The Wages of Fear (Clouzot, 1953) Weekend (Godard, 1967)
