The Passion of Joan of Arc (Dreyer)

I just watched Joan of Arc for the first time last month and was absolutely blown away by it. I had convinced myself it would be dry, dull, and fiercely arty (applying all the negative connotations the term "arty" carries), but it is as stunning and immediate as any film I've ever seen, and Richard Einhorn's score is at least half the reason why. I was also impressed by just how modern Dreyer's camera-work and editing is, and, how much story he tells through facial expression alone. I'd love to see this on the big screen some day.

I'd add:

Quite a few you suggest were borderline entries- eg Pi, Existenz, Cure, Crash, Repo Man, and One False Move, which i think i should have picked, slipped through too. Yeah, the list does need at least one extra Cronenberg, but i couldn't decide which. I like Existenz more than the probably more important Crash. Of course it's impossible to ever have a satisfactory cut-off point. I didn't like Songs from the Second Floor and didn't think it so essential, objectively, that i couldn't leave it out. You seem to like quite a few horror films. I've not seen Black Sabbath, just have the one by Bava (also enjoyed Blood and Black Lace), wasn't sure if he needed another inclusion.

Passion of Joan; probably Dreyer's most strikingly impressive film- a "symphony of faces", but others like Ordet and Gertrud (i thought the latter was boring first time round) have grown on me a lot and i also really admire Day of Wrath. His silent film Master of the House was good fun- quite a few of his films should please feminists!-, and Vampyr very eerie. For quite a while i thought he was overrated, but i now rate him more highly than Bergman.

Black Sunday is generally considered his masterwork, and often appears on many horror essentials lists. I understand why, since it's highly influential, but it's not my favorite. I prefer Black Sabbath much more, and, in fact, I think I even prefer lesser movies like Planet of the Vampires to it as well. I haven't seen Blood and Black Lace yet.

Vampyr is one of my all-time favorite horror movies. It's one of those rare movies that actually gets better on subsequent viewings, I think, because the viewer stops trying to follow the plot (which is less convoluted that it initially seems) and simply concentrates on the visuals. Watched intuitively, Vampyr is one of the most dreamlike movies made.
