Plot: An unhappily married woman falls in love with a young artist and is torn between the temptations of the flesh and her wedding vows.
Why See It: Though The New York Times criticized it for being out of touch with modern times, Ewing says, “I thought it was very haunting and moving. I think it’s one of his greatest films.”

Plot: A history professor takes her daughter on a boat tour of the Mediterranean and interacts with others on the boat, including characters played by Catherine Deneuve and John Malkovich.
Why See It: For the shocking ending and a dinner scene with some truly awkward dinner conversation. “It kind of drives me crazy,” says Ewing.
Plot: An operatic musical comedy that pokes fun at upper-class values, with some cannibalism thrown in for good measure.
Why See It: “It’s so radical and bizarre,” exclaims Ewing. “If Quentin Tarantino did something like opera movies, he would direct something like ‘The Cannibals.’ ”
