Ever ask yourself why so many great films are set on the coast or where water meets land?
THE WICKER MAN Beware of confusing the classic original with the truly dreadful 2006 remake.
FROM HERE TO ETERNITY In its day the symbolism was considered shocking.
VERTIGO Hitchcock’s masterpiece.
THE SOPRANOS OK, we know it’s not a movie, but these days the highest quality stuff is seen on television in series such as this.

DOCTOR NO From Aphrodite* to Bond
CAPE FEAR (1991 version) Another good remake.
PLANET OF THE APES Whatver you think of the whole movie, this is memorable scene – ironically doubly iconic.
DEATH IN VENICE
THE SEVENTH SEAL
