Please help me find black and white (or predominantly black and white) films MADE SINCE 1970 for an ongoing art project.

I've already found the obvious ones like Schindler's List, Raging Bull and directors like Woody Allen, Jim Jarmusch and Guy Maddin who have a considerable body of work.

Thanks!

You could do a power search at IMDB and specify the year range and color=black and white and exclude tv series here.

I hate it when people don't read the questions very well. I really hate it when I don't read the questions well enough. Sorry about that.

Wings of Desire, by Wim Wenders. And man, if you want art, this is art. This is some serious art. Visually, intellectually, spiritually. Art art art.

Robert Rodriguez's "Sin City" was produced entirely in black and white, and then hand colored, as I understand it. (Lots of red, in particular.)

(If you can get a hold of the Nightmare Before Christmas DVD, it's a special feature in there.)
