Before the Beatles and the Rolling Stones…the real rock stars had names like Fellini, Hitchcock, Truffaut, Bergman, and Malle.

This Labor Day weekend is the perfect time to get hooked on the classics all over again. 50 years ago, world cinema experienced a “watershed” moment that set the tone for a whole generation of auteurs to come, and in honor of that historical shift, we present Watershed, 13 of the most electric, daring, incendiary, and ground-breaking films that have ever graced the silver screen:

L’avventura

The 400 Blows / Les quatre cents coups
