Must Watch Movies

I watched Speilberg's Duel a couple of days ago. My only comments are that no Indian movie has come even close to beating this movie in this genre. It's an awesome "highway movie". RGV's "Road" came close, but the insertion of the "item" number(s) spoiled an effort that was shaping up to becoming a classic. I am, however, unware at the moment whether "Road" has/had an Hollywood "inspiration" at all. Someone fill me in please.

This is my list of "must watch" movies. Each week, I am watching atleast a couple of movies in this list and am constantly adding more as and when I hear of stuff that I have no idea about. "Duel" was one such pick.

This list does not, however reflect on the quality of the movies mentioned, but is an indication of just how much the other efforts of these individuals have captured my attention. This might not turn out to be the online equivalent of Oprah's book list, but it my own wish list, all the same. So people, feel free to suggest more movies.
