The Eyeball, a New Blog by Ryan Boudinot

Double Features

Citizen Kane

I created an account on The Auteurs a couple weeks ago. It’s an addictive site for film nerds started by a company working in close collaboration with The Criterion Collection. Right now it’s in beta. It’s a message board/blog/hulu/social networking kind of thing.

Anyway, one of the postings there recently asked users to list their ideal double features. Here are a few of the more inspired responses.

El Topo / Pink Flamingos

Citizen Kane / The Leopard

Salo / Caligula

West Side Story / Breakin’

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest / Titicut Follies

Midnight Cowboy / The Odd Couple

Magnolia / Short Cuts
