Welcome to Full Disclosure, in which Team ScreenAnarchy confesses to the classics that they have never seen, then remedies the situation by casting fresh eyes on those films for the very first time. For June we are mixing up the format a little bit, presenting our selections in a more easily digestible gallery format, if for no other reason than to include everyone's submissions in a single post.

But make no mistake, this month is as chock full of cinematic gems as ever: Roman Polanski's Chinatown is tackled by three of our collective, Andrei Tarkovsky's Andrei Rublev gets a serious grilling, we also have films from the likes of Wong Kar Wai, Charlie Chaplin and even Bruce Lee being savoured as never before. So simply click the right hand side of the banner image below to proceed. Enjoy!

"As a college student, I attempted to watch the three hour opus in the middle of the night. Between the hour, my own denied exhaustion, the movie itself, and the washed-out library-issued VHS tape I was playing, I calculate I made it about one hour in. (I am not alone – no less than the esteemed David Thomson admits that it's the first movie he ever fell asleep during). This time, half a lifetime later, it took me two sittings and no shortage of caffeine and sugar to complete. I still passed out three times, making a point to backtrack once I awoke."

A great, personal paragraph Jim. Which makes you sound like a caffeinated film critic version of Hunter S Thomson. I love it.

Hi Twitch, I wonder: what's the actual list? Is there one? I'd like to confront myself to it... Much obliged if you could communicate it.

Hi Cedric, each writer has a different list. Many of them are listed in the comments section here: http://twitchfilm.com/2013/01/...

@ Ard Vijn: Of Kieslowski's work I would recommend The Decalogue which is really a singular piece of television work, rarely equalled in its quality, and of course The Three Coulours-trilogy, which is his most emphathic work. Amator is more of an acquired taste, and very different, as is all his earlier work. For an introduction of his earlier work, you should probably try Blind Chance (a huge influence on Lola Rennt and Sliding Doors) and No End, and you should work your way back from there.

Sad to hear of the passing of Jim Kelly yesterday. For me, his one liners stole the show in Enter the Dragon.

I'd definitely recommend starting with Red, White and Blue, followed by The Decalogue.

Definitely go with the Three Colours Trilogy next.
