    it's such a great crutch for boredom not unlike smoking - after you get into the habit it becomes a second nature to the point that you can't really remember what life was like before it.

    Maurice Blanchot - Thomas the Obscure

    Great lists: I'm excited for the book recommendations, in particular

    Films: after the first three, the rest are listed in no particular order

    *From Pole to Equator - Yervant Gianikian (Experimental, Ethnographic)
    *A Brighter Summer Day - Edward Yang, 4 hour masterpiece. Amazing
    *Still Life (三峡好人) - Jia Zhangke


    High & Low - Kurosawa
    Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors - Sergei Parajanov
    Dead Birds - Ethnographic Film (Robert Gardner)
    Apollo Lives - Stan Brakhage (I saw this accompanied by two pianists, which was perfect.)
    Automatic Writing - William Kentridge
    Andrei Rublov, Stalker - Tarkovsky
    Frederic Wiseman - selections
    Chris Marker - honestly, all.
    On the Waterfront - Elia Kazan
    Night of the Iguana - John Huston
    Fitzcarraldo, Aguirre, The White Diamond, Lessons of Darkness - Herzog
    Agnes Varda - selections
    Malle - documentaries

    Well, this is a start. I need to stop before I get too obsessed with perfecting this list as it reflects "what I'm for" at this very moment.

    Haha I know Fuuma's post was ages ago and likely no longer relevant, but a bit of <3 for the fact that a Johnnie To film made your list.

    Though I prefer Election and possibly Election 2 and Exiled more... The Mission is fun too.

    I don't know if you watch much HK cinema these days, but "Let the Bullets Fly" was great too.
