This is perhaps my favorite list, and I'm just about tapped out. You have a fun ride ahead.

Let me ask again: Do you still have movies left? Or are you only going to rewatch? You are above me in the list ranking, but I've got nothing left to watch.

I'm in, I've already watched two yesterday. Currently I have 865/1080 left, so this sounds like a fun challenge.

1. Pickup on South Street (1953)

2. Monkey Business (1952)

There are a couple I have left that have French subs only. I will probably be able to understand, but will look up any words I don't understand.

Which ones?

These are the titles that are available but missing English subs:

https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/cezanne/
https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/tangos+voles/
http://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/hamshahri/ (broken?)
Tangos Voles is the only one of those with French subs, but you've already seen it.

These titles are not available online as far as I know:

I've already spoken to you on where to find Barabbas.

I've seen Tangos Voles already, so that's a moot point. I know I have Cezanne. Also, yes, I have Skoot hansawwar left to see.

1. Je t'aime je t'aime (1968)

This film was ok but necessarily disjointed due to what happens to the subject, ok but a bit dated to the sixties
