The Best Films You Probably Haven't Seen

Register for this Fall 2023 course on the new NYU SPS Academy of Lifelong Learning website .
During his lifetime, van Gogh never sold a single painting. Herman Melville couldn’t make enough money as a writer to quit his day job. Analogously, now-classic films The Wizard of Oz, It’s a Wonderful Life, and Vertigo were all Oscar losers and box office flops during their initial runs—it took years for them to achieve classic status. In this course, we meet in person to watch and discuss a variety of diverse and terrific movies you may have missed but are definitely worth seeing. Fall 2023 tuition is $999.
Registration at least three weeks prior to the course start date is highly recommended
