TSPDT's Recommended Viewing

Note: Some films are listed as one on TSPDT but have more than one IMdB entry (for example Brakhage's Arabic Numeral Series is listed here in no less than 20 parts).

http://theyshootpictures.com/recommendedviewing.htm
"This section consolidates all of TSPDT's film recommendations, most of which you can also view via our director pages, found here and here. These are - in essence - our favourite 2,500-plus films, and we encourage you to seek as many of them out as possible. Our recommended viewing section contains many acclaimed classics (that you'd expect to see on many all-time-best lists, and do), but it also contains plenty of neglected films (including Delmer Dave's public domain-crucified The Red House, George Archainbaud's The Lost Squadron, and Frank Perry's The Diary of a Mad Housewife). Films that we passionately believe deserve their 'day in the sun.'

All films listed in this section have either been seen by the makers of this website or chosen by contributors to TSPDT whose opinions we value and trust. We are not critics, just buffs, and it's fair to say that this list - due to the fact that there are still many remarkable films (by reputation) that we haven't seen - will continue to grow steadily. All up, between us, we have seen over 8,000 films to date."

"HR = Highly Recommended (Masterpiece/Near-Masterpiece); R = Recommended (Strong cinematic effort/Better than good)"

I have marked "Highly Recommended" films with "hr".
