    Citizen Kane, Charlie Caplin films, apocalypse now, star wars films, American grafitti, renal without a cause. there are so many great movies. Don't be afraid (or worried that they'll be boring) to watch not only silent films, but pre 1960's films and even pre 1950's.. gone with the wind was great, Sunset blvd was good too. all these are mostly old films.
