I've recently gotten excited about Film with a capital "F", what should I watch?

In the last few months I've gotten really interested in films. I've been reading screenplays and working my way through the French New Wave directors. I'm already a fan of Mike Leigh, Ken Loach, Herzog and Les Blank.
What other seminal, important, wonderful movies should I watch? What accessible books should I read about film?
I'm extra interested in non-European films and know next to nothing about African and Asian film history. Lady directors are of special interest as well. (I'm limited somewhat by what's available in the local library systems, but I'll try to find a way to watch whatever is worth watching.)
