I'm not sure I follow the point of this exercise, per se, but I'll play along.

Bush Mama
Celine and Julie Go Boating
Vanishing Point
Story of O
Don't Look Now
Cannibal Holocaust
That's what fiction is for. It's for getting at the truth when the truth isn't sufficient for the truth.

I really fail when it comes to cinema pre-1980s.  I can only think of 12 movies I consider truly great:

Annie Hall
Badlands
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
A Clockwork Orange
Taxi Driver
Network
Barry Lyndon
Aguirre, The Wrath of God
That Obscure Object of Desire
Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory
Walkabout
Robin Hood

There's a backlog of like 50 or so "great" movies from the 70s I just haven't had a chance to see.  And that goes for every decade back before then, too.  To see:

1900
3 Women
All That Jazz
All the President's Men
Amarcord
Animal House
Being There
Bitter Tears of Petra Von Kant, The
Blazing Saddles
Breaking Away
Cabaret
Confession, The
Conversation, The
Cries and Whispers
Day for Night
Day of the Jackal, The
Days of Heaven
Deliverance
Dirty Harry
Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, The
Dog Day Afternoon
Don't Look Now
Exorcist, The
Fiddler on the Roof
French Connection, The
Harold and Maude
Holy Mountain, The
King Lear
Kramer vs. Kramer
Last Picture Show, The
Long Goodbye, The
Love
Love in the Afternoon
Manhattan
MASH
McCabe & Mrs. Miller
Midnight Express
Muppet Movie, The
Nashville ("saw" it, never really gave it a chance)
Paper Moon
Patton
Rocky
Scenes from a Marriage
Serpico
Solaris
Story of O
Tin Drum, The
Tomorrow
What's Up, Doc?
Zardoz

Where's that thread where I profess my shame?  Meh.  One a day for two months.  I could totally do it with dedication and Netflix DVDs.  So much other shit to do tho.
