Some good shouts here, guys. Deliverance is one I could have had in my top 5. Others I like are my two favourite Bond films, Live and Let Die and The Spy who Loved Me, Porridge, The Wicker Man, Marathon Man, All the Presidents Men, High Plains Drifter, the list is seemingly endless!
Le Cercle Rouge? I've not heard about that one Arthur. I will look out for it.
I'm glad to see you have time for European films. I watch one myself now and then. The subtitles. don't really bother me.
It's a great film Charles. I've got it on blu ray, Film 4 would be the only channel that might show it. I first saw it in the 90s when it had a re-release & was shown in independent cinemas throughout the UK. Up until then it was not that well known outside of France, now it's considered one of the great heist/crime films.
I know foreign films are a 'blind spot' for many, but they were once shown on tv fairly regularly ( not any more ) & that's how I got interested in French, Italian & Japanese cinema. Subtitles shouldn't put people off but that's usually the reason people give for not watching them. Obviously watching a film in English is preferable but very few films sound good dubbed into English.
Do you mind not calling me squire or chief or boyo or mate?
