    I'll picking Dreyer's The Passion of Joan of Arc, IMO it has more emotions than all of those movies combined.

    That's true, for the most part: the ending of Paths of Glory packs a wallop...

    You're right, I was thinking about Paths of Glory as a possible counter when I wrote this. Barry Lyndon really got to me too emotionally, but that's about it.

    Brook: Ikiru is fine - I meant more obscure than that. [​IMG]

    Four more and we're good to go!
