  1. Thank you! That's what I was thinking, to be honest. I'm a massive fan of the film, and a remake would be very hard to do. However, I could see Hollywood wanting to, and so I imagine it would play a little like the Psycho episode of For Better or Worse. I will admit that it is probably the weakest entry on my list.
  2. For the sake of variety, I thought it would be fun to suggest one film from each decade of the 1900s, each one of a different genre. Remaking some would delight me, others terrify me, and the rest are curveballs, as I have no idea how they’d be remade. 1902: A Trip to the Moon, Georges Melies’s whimsical sci-fi. 1919: Male and Female, Cecil B. Demille’s silent adventure film that explores gender and class. 1927: The Jazz Singer, Alan Crossland’s musical, and the first ever talkie. 1933: The Testament of Dr. Mabuse, Fritz Lang’s supernaturalish crime piece. It pissed off the Nazis, so is probably worth a look. 1944: Gaslight, George Cukor’s psychological thriller which ended up naming af orm of abuse, 1952: High Noon, Fred Zimmerman’s western, which some argue is actually an anti-western. 1962: To Kill A Mockingbird, Robert Mulligan’s courtroom drama, which contains possibly the best fictional father ever.. 1973: Don’t Look Now, Nicolas Roeg’s horror, for my money, one of the best in the genre.. 1986: Blue Velvet, David Lynch’s Crime Thriller, including a scene it took me several tries to get through. 1998: Dark City, Alex Proyas’s Sci-Fi Noir, and a personal favourite. I hope this helps, and I’d love to see what you do with them.
  3. Hello! Here's a few films which meet your brief, I've tried to keep it varied across genre and when it was made: Silent Running (89 minutes) Phone Booth (81 minutes) Run Lola Run (81 minutes) Following (it is only 69 minutes, which might be too short, but it is a lesser known Christopher Nolan film) The Mouse That Roared (83 minutes) Paths of Glory (An early Stanley Kubrick film, 88 minutes) Once (85 minutes) Attack the Block (88 minutes) Eraserhead (85 minutes) I hope this helps.
