Discoveries – Classics

A discovery in this context is a personal discovery.  A movie may be famous or obscure, hailed or unknown, reviled or loved, and still I  haven’t (hadn’t) seen it.

This is a list of older films that I discovered since writing this film diary in 2002.

I’ve liked or enjoyed much more than listed here, but these, in particular, are the ones that have stood out over time.

They are in no order whatsoever.
