Black Narcissus (1947)

A group of nuns struggle to establish a convent in the Himalayas, while isolation, extreme weather, altitude, and culture clashes all conspire to drive the well-intentioned missionaries mad. (NR, 101 min.)
"It remains a rapturous, near-indescribable work of cinematic art."

- AV Club

Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975)

During a rural summer picnic, a few students and a teacher from an Australian girls' school vanish without a trace. Their absence frustrates and haunts the people left behind. (PG, 107 min.)
"One of the most hauntingly beautiful mysteries ever created on film."
- San Francisco Chronicle

The Swimmer (1968)

A man spends a summer day swimming as many pools as he can all over a quiet suburban town.
(PG, 95 min.)
"As do few movies, The Swimmer stays in the memory like an echo that never quite disappears."
- New York Times

Lawrence of Arabia (1962)

The story of T.E. Lawrence, the English officer who successfully united and led the diverse, often warring, Arab tribes during World War I in order to fight the Turks. (PG, 216 min.)
"Riveting from beginning to end, featuring stellar performances, amazing cinematography, and a story without a trace of fat, the film does everything an epic is supposed to do - and more."
- Reelviews

Annihilation (2018)

A biologist signs up for a dangerous, secret expedition into a mysterious zone where the laws of nature don't apply.
(R, 115 min.)
"Absorbing and hypnotic, Annihilation is the best kind of sci-fi film - the kind that challenges and subverts the genre, all the while introducing new ideas that you'll see in films to come."

- News.com.au

Red Desert (1964)

In an industrial area, unstable Giuliana attempts to cope with life by starting an affair with a co-worker at the plant her husband manages. Original title: Il deserto rosso
(NR, 117 min.)
"Red Desert is Antonioni's clearest, most striking statement of purpose - and one of cinema's great films."
- Little White Lies
