Everyone has those classic films they are ashamed to admit they've never watched. No matter how big of a movie buff you are, there have to be at least a few "must-sees" that have slipped through the cracks. Here at ScreenAnarchy we've been celebrating those films in our year-long series Full Disclosure (See our latest entry here). As part of our 5 Days of Refn series, we asked Nicolas Winding Refn to name twelve classics he is sorry to say he has yet to see. A self-described cineaste, Refn had few exclusions that only God would forgive -- but even he had a handful of gigglers. Click below to see Nicolas Winding Refn's List of Shame.

The Swedes and Danes have had a long history of shared traditions in Art but Refn was quick to admit there were plenty of films by Ingmar Bergman he has never seen, including his 1966 identity proto-horror classic.

I remember an old interview with Refn where he said that his favorite films were "Mean streets" and "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", so this isn't surprising.

I'd urge him to watch the original HARAKIRI sooner rather than later. Such a magnificent film!

I'm surprised he hasn't seen Un Chien Andalou. Its only short haha. Still its impossible to see everything. It's overwhelming even at the thought of it....

"Is this perhaps the most shocking title on the list? What do you think? Which film are you most surprised that one of today's most exciting directors has yet to see?"

Well, I think the Bergman films came as an surprise for me, Refn is danish, I always thought they were forced to see his films in filmschool.

Interesting article, thanks Mr Aldrich.
