A Big Parade of films to view while self-isolating


I am something of a film fan and have over the years made a study of the subject. I thought it worthwhile making a list of films that everyone who is really interested in film ought to see. I’m not going to include films that are well known and that are frequently on television. Rather my idea is to include those films you might not have seen and perhaps might not have heard of. I will include links to IMDB. Nearly all the films I have listed are highly rated. The list is mainly from the earliest to the latest. There are quite a lot of foreign language titles.  I list few recent films as they are well known. How many have you seen?
