The Third Man
Recognized as a cinematic masterpiece and praised for its eloquent fusion of bold elements and outstanding cast, The Third Man stars Academy Award® winner Orson Welles (Best Writing, Original Screenplay, Citizen Kane, 1941); Academy Award® nominee Trevor Howard (Best Actor in a Leading Role, Sons and Lovers, 1960); and critically acclaimed actor Joseph Cotten (Shadow of a Doubt). Reed's film was awarded the Grand Prix at the 1949 Cannes Film Festival, was included in AFI's Top 100 Movies List and was named the Top British Film of the 20th Century by the British Film Institute.

From the creators of Amélie (Jean-Pierre Jeunet) and The City of Lost Children (Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro) comes the black comedy Delicatessen. Upon its debut in 1991, the film became an instant cult classic and received overwhelming critical acclaim for establishing Jeunet and Caro's signature style. Variety proclaimed it "beautifully textured, cleverly scripted and eerily shot ... a zany little film," and it was nominated for a BAFTA Film Award for Best Film not in the English language along with an amazing 10 Cesar Awards, winning for Best Editing, Best First Work, Best Production Design and Best Writing.
