38. M

Description: This is an excellent movie - Fritz Lang's - M is must see material (rated in the top 50 movies all time by IMDb and many others). Peter Lorre stars as Hans Beckert, a sick, twisted man who is a child murderer. When the hoodlums in the underworld of Berlin grow tired of all the police searches ruining their business, they decide to catch the child killer themselves - forget about the police. They enlisted the help of the homeless as their eyes and ears and then.... you'll see! watch it! This is the original masterpiece, German with subtitles. And Lorre's performance as Hans is remarkable - every bit as chilling as Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter in Silence of The Lambs. Don't take candy from a stranger takes on new meaning.

51. Third Man, The

Description: The Third Man is wonderful film about post war Europe and the corruption that flourished as crooks made fortunes in the Black Market. Pulp fiction writer Holly Martins is looking for his friend, Harry Lime in Vienna. But it seems Harry is dead. He meets up with his girlfriend, Anna Schmidt - and is disturbed that the stories of Harry's demise don't add up. So he goes to the law -and learns from Major Calloway that Harry was a crook and a creep, who sold watered down penicillan in the Black Market. The film features obvious tributes to the 1936 Fritz Lang classic - M, about a child murderer - including the balloon man, the remarkable cinematography (Robert Krasker won the Best Oscar for Cinematography in 1951 for The Third Man), and the chase scenes in the streets of germany (Austria-Hungary). You will also love the great music - Theme from the 3rd man, which was played on a zither by Anton Karas. Make sure you check out the preview. We also recommend that you check out Chet Atkin's version of the theme, which is just as remarkable as the Karas' zither masterpiece.
