Thanks for the helpful overview KGB. Doing it like that was my original plan, and would probably be an easier way to attack this than film by film. In the end the best way to go though I think is to do a little of both as we are doing right now. I'll look into all of those directors you mentioned as well as the major movements will probably post some ideas to sift through later on.

I'm definitely planning to order a few Kurosawa films, but I'm not sure which ones at the moment. We actually have Ikiru and Dersu Uzala, but I'm pretty sure those aren't his most representative. Actually this is a good place to start towards the completion of the list.Which two Kurosawa films would you guys say are the most essential to a collection like this?
As far as Corbucci, I'd never heard of him before now, but he would fit into the Spaghetti Western genre wouldn't he? I have heard of his film The Great Silence and that would be a good option for that category wouldn't it.Also, anymore say on this Evil Dead film or B-Horror in general. Can we come up with 5 essentials in the genre? It's mostly an 80's thing right?
