What films would you recommend to educate me in cinema?

I feel very uneducated in 'important' cinema and I'd really like to know and understand more. If I knew how to properly define 'important' I probably wouldn't need to ask the question, but names like Kurosawa, Tartakovsky, Fellini that I know I don't know anything about. What I'm hoping the lovely hivemind can do is give me a good starting point - something equivalent to the five-foot shelf of books that contains an entire liberal education (http://archive.org/details/harvardclassics), but for cinema. DVD collections (or YouTube links) that form part of this would be welcome too. Basically, help me educate myself in cinema!

What is the legal situation with regards to my ceiling falling in?

My kitchen ceiling just fell in, as a result of a month-long leak that has been building over time. About 2-3 square metres of inch-thick plaster came down at once - would certainly have caused injury if not worse had we been underneath it. The owners of the flat above have repeatedly stalled in taking any action - as far as I know they have still not called a plumber. They explicitly stated on Thursday that they were getting an emergency plumber in and hoped for Saturday morning but weren't sure. This is Tuesday and we haven't heard anything. Prior to this they were repeatedly contacted by our letting agent but claimed that they'd "been having trouble with" both their mobile and landline. Are they liable for this in any way? How do I proceed? (Further details: I'm in Scotland in the UK.)

I want to find contact details for every library in the UK

Does there exist a list of address/contact details for all libraries in the UK (or Scotland)? Failing that, is there a way that I could acquire or build such a list without doing it manually?

How can I find out more about McMurdo Station in Antarctica?

I enjoyed learning about McMurdo Station in Antarctica from Encounters at the End of the World: how can I find out more about that place and what it's like to live there? Ideally I'm looking for films or TV shows but also good magazine articles, books, websites, all either fiction or non-fiction (as long as the fiction is somewhat based in reality).

Help me learn a very selective slice of Greek and Latin words.

What can I do about privatisation and cuts in the UK, other than protest?

I'm very angry about what's happening in the UK right now, including-but-not-limited-to: the unnecessarily savage and unequal budget cuts, the privatisation of our education, health and police systems, the scapegoating of vulnerable groups and the dishonesty and cynicism of the Conservative and Liberal Democrat politicians involved. Other than protesting, what active, concrete action can I take to fight or correct these wrongs? [more inside]

Help me find a big, scary, exciting and rewarding project or challenge to take on!

Two years ago I started doing stand-up comedy, which took me very far from my comfort zone and was hard work but was hugely rewarding. One year ago I took a one-way flight to Thailand to start a solo backpacking trip, something I'd always wanted to do but which terrified me - this was also hard work but fantastic and life-affirming. These were both huge things for me. I want to begin something similarly big/difficult/scary/rewarding/exciting/life-affirming this year that will live up to those first 2 years, but what?

What do I need to do before booking the first flight of a 5-month backpacking trip?

I'm about to book a flight from the UK to Bangkok (flying late Feb) to start a backpacking trip. I've got a recently renewed passport and funds for travel. I haven't got a flight back (not using a RTW ticket), travel insurance, VISAs, vaccinations or anything else yet. I want to book the flight so that it's real and happening, but is there anything else I really need to do FIRST? [more inside]

Why does my gas cooker not have gas anymore, and what do I do about it?

My gas hob/stove/cooktop doesn't have gas anymore, in any of the 4 rings. Our gas boiler appears to be working fine as we're still getting heating and hot water. The electric oven on the same appliance also works fine. The ignition works, it's just there's no gas coming through, but there was yesterday. What is wrong, and what do I do?

Should I Eat The Cheese? (Slight variation on past questions)

I have some Spanish 'Queso Tetilla' cheese (a soft cheese completely surrounded by a hard rind). It's about a month old and got taken in a suitcase from Barcelona to the UK for about 16 hours - apart from that, it's been in the fridge the whole time. There are a couple of spots of blue mould on the rind, and a soft patch where a sticker was (through cellophane), but having cut into it the inside seems OK. Should I Eat It? [more inside]
