I would advocate for Days of Heaven from Terrence Malick for those who have not seen it. Visually, it may be Malick's most gorgeous film outside of Tree of Life, which obviously Malick's whole film making gimmick is visual poetry.

3 Women [1977]

Aguirre: The Wrath of God [1972]

Ali: Fear Eats the Soul [1972]

All That Jazz [1979]

Barry Lyndon [1975]

Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia [1974]

Chinatown [1974]

A Clockwork Orange [1971]

Cries and Whispers [1972]

The Devils [1971]

The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie [1972]

The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser [1974]

The Exorcist [1973]

Five Easy Pieces [1970]

Harlan County U.S.A. [1976]

Hearts and Minds [1974]

The Holy Mountain [1973]

The Last Picture Show [1971]

Love and Death [1975]

Manhattan [1979]

McCabe and Mrs. Miller [1971]

The Mirror [1975]

Stroszek [1977]

Taxi Driver [1976]

I could probably pimp about a 100 more, but I'll give other people the chance to do that.
