Robert Altman's "Short Cuts": 187 minutes and 20 characters seemed daunting initially, but "Short Cuts" had me hooked. Absolutely hooked. As soon as I gave up trying to predict the eventual intersection of the stories, the film became so much enjoyable. If you have an hour or so, read this really interesting page about "narrative" and Short Cuts.
William Wyler's "Jezebel":
Wyler's 1938 film was almost the predecessor to "Gone With The Wind". John Huston co-wrote the screenplay, but the only reason for renting this film is, what else, Bette Davis.
"Jezebel" is a good movie, but ultimately, it is not as satisfying as "The Little Foxes" or "All About Eve".
