Lars Nilsen's top films seen in 2010


The wonderful Mr. Lars Nilsen, the head programmer at the Alamo Drafthouse and peddler of the excellent Weird Wednesday film series, has been kind enough to provide me with his list of some of his favorites that he saw for the first time this year. I've seen only a few of them and am absolutely dead set on seeing them all! Here they are, alphabetically:



ARCADE ATTACK (1982; Mike Wallington)
(Can be viewed here)






THE BELLE STARR STORY (1968; Lina Wertmuller, Piero Cristofani)





HEAVEN AND HELL (1980; Chang Cheh)









THE HOUSEMAID (1960; Kim Ki-young)






KAMIKAZE HEARTS (1986; Juliet Bashore)







LAW AND ORDER (1969; Frederick Wiseman)









SCHOOL IN THE CROSSHAIRS (1981; N. Obayashi)











THEY WERE EXPENDABLE (1945; John Ford)






36 HOURS (1965; George Seaton)





THE UNIVERSAL MIND OF BILL EVANS (1966; Louis Carvell)

Great list! I had a few of these on my to watch pile already but I'll make a point to get through all of them this year if at all possible. Already saw ARCADE ATTACK and it's BIZARRE and AWESOME!

Such a cool list. Hanyo (Housemaid) screened at Fantastic Fest. Was thrilled to see it there. Such a good film. Definitely want to see the others listed here.

Yeah Lars gave us all some cool titles to seek out as I knew he would. He has a cinematic awareness that is pretty singular and unrivaled in a lot of ways. I can't wait for the next Weird Wednesday calendar!
