i suppose potentially fatal ritualistic orgasms just don't compare to the reality of waterboarding & electrocution via buttplug

100 days after childhood (not an all time classic, but a person favorite)
la strada
blade runner
castle in the sky
whisper of the heart
le fils
wild strawberries (only bergman i've been really impressed by actually)
umberto d
the eel
beau travail
a face in the crowd
taste of cherry
aguirre
murder by contract
take shelter (best film of this decade)
the grand budapest hotel (still has some wes anderson obnoxiousness but i loved it overall)

Fifth Element
The Good Dinosaur
Tarzan
Fargo
Close Encounters of the Third Kind

I don't know if these are my top 5, but they're movies that I really really like and am able to remember at this time.

Oh, Tex mentioned Babadook and I just want to second that it's a good movie.

I've been meaning to get into Bergman and Herzog for ages.

i've been disappointment with most of bergman except wild strawberries. not that they aren't good, just not really the all time classics one could expect. i did really like the TV version of fanny and alexander, though it came off the rails at the very end for no good reason.

I'm Watched half of Through A Glass Darkly, should really finish it. It's pretty creepy though.

i'm generally iffy about bergman, though i count persona among my top 25 favourite films & while i've only sat through fanny and alexander once to date, i enjoyed it as well. i think i'm only iffy about him because he's become the go-to stereotype/name drop for all things Artsy & Foreign and no one can live up to that much exposure.

A Goofy Movie
Battle Royale
Scott Pilgrim
Guardians of the Galaxy/Captain America Civil War (both tied for my favorite comic movie so far)

Those of you in third level education, can you see if you have access to this? http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.15...N/abstract

If so, can you download and upload it for me? I'm very interested in reading it, and frustratingly enough neither of my universities are affiliated with the scholarly site in question.

Wild Strawberries was alright. I love anything with subtle Jungian references and the dream sequences were Kafkaesque enough foR me, but it wasn't great. Same applies for Persona. Weird how these movies were probably progenitors of the same movie tropes that now make them feel dated.

Parallels between Persona and Mulholland Drive were abound, the latter of which is definitely in my top five films of all time, though it took several rematches to realise just how perfect it is.

I vehemently disagree with almost everything past Lord said in this thread.

God, you should watch Zerkalo or The Mirror by Andrei Tarkovsky. Despite not liking it myself, I think you'll thoroughly enjoy it. You should also watch Marguerite de la Nuit, I would be curious to hear your thoughts on it if you can find it, a pretty obscure French film from the fifties. Wasn't too impressed with Wild Strawberries or Blade Runner but last night I downloaded a few of the films you listed above, I'll let you know my thoughts on them after I watch them.
