Much better match than the double-bill I saw FV on, which was with TRUE GRIT, a very odd combo. My alltime weirdest double-bill (that I didn't view, just drove past) was GONE WITH THE WIND and the Adam West BATMAN, at the grand (now defunt) Cinema 150 theater in Santa Clara.

Great thread.

My choice would be two of my favourite films, THE YAKUZA (1975, directed by Sydney Pollack) and LOST IN TRANSLATION (2003, directed by Sofia Coppola).

Both films belong to the gaijin-in-Japan genre but are otherwise - superficially, at least - very different: the former is an asskicking action thriller, while the latter.... isn't. However, both are well-acted, poignant, thought-provoking and atmosphere-driven affairs that deliver so much more than what it says on the tin, so to speak.

Not sure which order I'd show 'em in, though. I'd probably finish with Coppola's effort, but Pollack's might also close the evening effectively.

Nice, been wanting to see THE YAKUZA for some time. Only have Netflix streaming, so my only current options are waiting for that to stream or buying it sight unseen.

I'd like to see THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI (my preference is with the Timothy Brock score) with SHUTTER ISLAND. The Scorsese flick leans harder on the twist, so I'd probably start with that one.

A few more:

KILL, BABY, KILL (1966, dir. Mario Bava) and DON'T LOOK NOW (1973, dir. Nicolas Roeg)

PEEPING TOM (1960, dir. Michael Powell) and RAISING CAIN (1992, dir. Brian De Palma)

Show it on the same screen. TENEBRAE goes down to reveal RAISING CAIN.

The readers' comments are worth reading too, though they are a bit buried on the page. To be continued in the much neglected Western thread I guess.

I'd like to do a "creepy Robert Mitchum" night and do THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER with CAPE FEAR.

I'd like to do a 'directed by Charles Laughton' double bill. Unfortunately, that's not possible.

Though NIGHT OF THE HUNTER and POSEIDON ADVENTURE both give you Shelley Winters dead underwater.

Practically everything leads from or back to 2001. Scott watched it all the time, and what I think was the best draft had a HAL-like showdown between the ship's computer and Ripley. The NOSTROMO white-on-white aspects clearly reflect the 2001 look, while the rest of the ship is a deliberate departure (be interesting to see if it would have gone even further afield if there wasn't already the used-universe look in SILENT RUNNING and STAR WARS.)

Scott chickened out on the no-sound-in-space, but he was interested, like Kubrick, in using pre-existing music (though for him, he wanted Tomita's version of THE PLANETS.)

Yeah, my guess was going to be "malevolent onboard computer" for Alien & 2001.

Unoriginal, but want to see it anyway:

THE FRENCH CONNECTION 1 & 2.

Slightly less unoriginal:

THE FRENCH CONNECTION with THE SEVEN-UPS.

But the best would be:

THE FRENCH CONNECTION with TO LIVE AND DIE IN L.A.

'To live and die in LA' is very underrated.

Agreed. It's definitely the spiritual companion piece to CONNECTION. Petersen is fantastic as always.

I'm always a nut for THE CONVERSATION, so I'll bring that one up again.

RASHOMON with THE CONVERSATION.

Petersen never seemed to get the movie breaks, but 'Manhunter' and 'To live and die in LA' partly defined the 1980s for me.

Looks like I need to see TO LIVE AND DIE IN LA. I've had it laying around for months.

ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK and CONAN THE BARBARIAN would be a nice double.

Dude, absolutely. See it ASAP.

I'd definitely watch the ESCAPE/CONAN night.

Makes me also want to see a night of Carpenter/Russell. Either ESCAPE/THING or ESCAPE/BIG TROUBLE would be awesome.

Just thinking how fun it would be to have a NORTH BY NORTHWEST / FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE night, just to show how significant the former's influence was on the latter.
