Old Movie Recommendations

I have always been more of a music guy than a movie guy I feel like I have a good understanding of music from many different eras and can see the evolution of music to the stuff we enjoy (or for some don't enjoy lol) today.

I don't have that same base of understanding with movies.

I would love some recs from the Chiefs Planet brain trust of old movies I should watch I am going to spend time this fall and especially winter when things slow down and get a lot of movies in.

I signed up for the Criterion streaming service and there is a lot to dive into there. Generally I am drawn to stuff from the 40's 50's and 60's and enjoy noir stylized stuff but totally open minded.

First one I am watching is 1949's Obsession a British crime drama that has been fun so far.

Interested to see what people think are still worth watching today! Thanks in advance.

These three are great and a good introduction. I would stay away from Seven Samurai unless you get into the genre. It is long and rather slow.

If you are into Shakespeare and know your King Lear, and you like Throne of Blood, Ran is good but very long and a bit hard to follow if you don't already know the Shakespeare story.

Never heard of Criterion, looks like they have some interesting stuff.
Turner Classic Movies has expanded their offerings recently if you have access to that.

Looks like Dragonwyck is on the Criterion list. Vincent Price is amazing.
And it looks like they have Pit and Pendelum and House of Usher as well.

Double Indemnity is good. Maltese Falcon is also good.

The Coen Brothers made a really good film, in a film noir style, The Man Who Wasn't There.

Few of my noir faves from the '40s - Out of the Past and the Blue Dahlia and Phantom Lady. I'd recommend any noir with Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake. Early 50s noir is abundant, if you find something on Criterion from the time frame it's guaranteed to be good.

Check out "Elevator to the Gallows" from '58. It's French Film Noir with a killer improvised score by Miles Davis.

Vintage noir ended in 1959 with Touch of Evil, but neo-Noir movies exist that are great too - The Long Goodbye and Chinatown and Night Moves from the 70s are examples. Check out "Noir Alley" on TCM every Saturday Night.
