In "Scorsese on Scorsese" he says there will be another part concentrating on Leone, Bava, Bertoluci etc.

This may take some time.  Thelma Schoonmaker mentioned a couple of times on TCM, she's assisting Scorsese on a British cinema documentary.  She indicated they had started the project already, but basically they work on it in between feature film projects.  She doesn't anticipate that particular documentary being ready for another 2-3 years.

It's pretty obvious Marty doesn't have the time left to finish all the projects he has in making. What a shame :'(

The Glass Key (1942) - 9.5/10

Down by Law (1986) - 8/10
The two earlier Jarmusch movies I saw were both on some level a bit artsy and stiff and pretentious, but in this one all that is gone. It's slow, yes, but not boring at any turn unlike the others. Still Mystery Train and Night on Earth to go (they'll be on TV as part of Jarmusch series they're showing).

It's not the best I've seen, but it is good. It's faithful to Hammett, in that a very strong whiff of sado-masochism is present.

Yeah, but I bet you have seen a couple more than I have. Though, they're running a series of noirs on TV currently, so I try to expand my knowledge. After the series is finished (and I've watched Stray Dog which I have on DVD) I think I'll have seen enough to make my top 10. By the way, what is the best noir you've seen?

The best guy to consult on this topic is the "Czar of Noir" himself, Eddie Muller. He lists his top 25 here: http://www.eddiemuller.com/top25noir.html

I can go with Eddie's top 5 picks, but below that our tastes diverge. I'd put Out of the Past higher, and leave some of those others off altogether (Falcon bores me). Those I'd add include I Wake Up Screaming (great title!), Angel Face, and Fallen Angel. Unaccountably, Muller doesn't list The Big Sleep, which is essential viewing. I'm also very fond of its counterpart, Murder, My Sweet. One I've come to appreciate recently is Born To Kill. And some of the Joan Crawford vehicles are good: Mildred Pierce, of course, but also the even better The Damned Don't Cry.

Thanks. I've seen The Big Sleep and I gotta say it probably won't be in my top 5.

The Graduate - Not sure I'll venture a rating just yet. The word that instantly comes to mind is "banal".

A word that can be applied to all turds, in fact.
