And here we are, at the end of our year-long exploration into the shadowy reaches of classic cinema where we have dared not venture before now. Each of us now experienced up to a dozen highly praised works for the very first time - some we have enjoyed, some which have failed to live up to their reputations - but all can now be strucken off our Lists of Shame and of which we will forevermore now hold a real opinion.

2014 will see a whole new incarnation of this feature unveiled, again focusing on overlooked films of historical and artistic merit but taking a remarkably different tact - but more about that in the New Year. Before then, Team Twitch tackles a cracking selection of cinematic gems for December, including offerings from David Lean, Sergio Leone, Jean Vigo, David Lynch, John Woo and Carl Theodor Dreyer, as well as a smattering of traditional Christmas crackers. So until next year, enjoy!

More about Lists of Shame 2013

    Shelagh - if you thing this is the Spaghetti-Western getting political.... Then you should check out the film Leone made shortly after this one, DUCK! YOU SUCKER.

    I really enjoyed the way the list was written in comparison with all the "best of" lists Twitch has had lately. This list actually had real commentary and mini-reviews instead of the "I think it's the best movie, but I'm not going to say why; just trust me and respect my authority" lists.

    What are "Dutch Angles"?

  • theConundrumm

    the camera tilted on an angle... (and not 100% on this aspect, shot from a low angle)... don't know where exactly the term "dutch" comes into it... doors always look awesome shot this way...

  • There's much debate on the origin, but some have suggested it's a corruption of "deutsche", or German, referring to the oblique angles used in expressionist cinema in the 20s and 30s. Think Murnau or Lang, or, better yet, 1960s Batman

    Man, here I thought dutch was finally used in a positive way...
