Are there any films that people rave about and are considered classics that you have yet to see?

I still haven't seen:

Citizen Kane
Metropolis
ET
Indiana Jones films
The Good, The Bad & The Ugly
Oldboy
Apocalypse Now
Last Tango In Paris
Schindler's List
Unforgiven
Erasherhead
Hitchcock films (except Psycho and Vertigo)

Those are the main ones off the top of my head but I'm sure there are more.

I've tried and failed to watch The Bicycle Thieves 3 or 4 times, I always turn it off, it's so depressing.

You need more than 3 hours for Gone With the Wind, it is about 3 hours 50 minutes long. The first half is really really good, the second less so, but it's still worth seeing.

I watched Lawrence of Arabia for the first time back in January and it's absolutely brilliant. A true epic.

The Birth of a Nation
As a piece of film history Birth of a Nation is absolutely vital.

However, as a piece of entertainment it is absolutely vile. Even accounting for the times it is terrible. It makes Triumph of the Will look restrained.

I do accept that because of the subject matter of that film it's very controversial.

Okay. Looks like I need to see aside more time for it then.

Biggest directors I've seen nothing from are probably Sternberg and Gance. Also seen no Harold Lloyd, Laurel & Hardy or Marx Bros.

Chronologically:

Intolerance
Sunrise
Dracula
Scarface
Angels with Dirty Faces
Bambi
Fantasia
It's a Wonderful Life
Tokyo Story
12 Angry Men
To Kill a Mockingbird
The Great Escape
The Sound of Music
Grease
Top Gun
Braveheart
Up

Only a few there I'm really eager to see.
