- The Godfather, Part III • At age 19 I vaguely aware of what The Godfather was, but I had not seen either part 1 or part 2 yet. I only saw Part III because all my friends were going. I haven't seen it all the way through since, but I think Part III is better if you don't know how good parts 1 and 2 were.
- The Last Seduction • This movie is the reason I made this list. I had read about a different thriller with a similar name, and got the titles mixed up. I figured out pretty quickly that I was in the wrong theater. I appreciated the unflinching noir tone of the film, and I enjoyed a movie with a irredeemable female protagonist.
- Vanya on 42nd Street • I was expecting something totally different. I was not expecting a bunch of very talented actors sitting in a circle reading the script.
- Sullivan's Travels • The second half of a double feature with It Happened One Night, I left halfway through. I don't appreciate "wrongly imprisoned" films.
- The Killers • All I knew about this was the blurb in the Brattle Theater schedule. That was enough to lure me to the screening.
- The Barefoot Contessa • I was in a movie-going mood, and the Brattle Theater's blurb sounded interesting. Too bad I almost fell asleep!
- The Station Agent • All I knew about this was that there was a little person in the movie, and Patricia Clarkson too. What else did I need to know?
- The Umbrellas of Cherbourg • All I knew going in was "It's a French movie, and there's no dialog. It's all-singing".

The two sequels are both superior to this movie, but strangely, Identity is better in context with the sequels, maybe because the potential investment here pays off in the sequels. (Showcase Cinemas Randolph)
