Some of the best, and most obvious, advice to give anyone trying to get into cinema is to just be patient, and pay attention at all times. It is axiomatic for sure, but this advice is even more prevalent when considering slow, meandering cinema. It can be tempting to wander off and lose focus, but remaining diligent is what is going to provide the best understanding and enjoyment of the content over anything else.
The history of slow cinema runs the gauntlet of auteur legends such as Carl Theodor Dreyer, Ingmar Bergman, Chantal Akerman, Yasujiro Ozu, and Michelangelo Antonioni. Since the infamous boos and jeers directed towards the groundbreaking L’Avventura at Cannes, slow film has always seemed to have an uphill struggle to find a proper home. Now many filmmakers are applauded for such “relentless” pacing.
In fact, from an academic and historical point-of-view, slow film is entirely antithetical to classical style filmmaking. Old (and new) films are dominated by successive cutting, varying of shots/angles, and utilizing the Kuleshov effect to its fullest for easier plotting. Usually classic Hollywood films did this so the editor could cover up any mistakes or discrepancies.
Now it seems as if newer, mainstream films are vying for audience attention with as much visual stimuli as possible. However, many slow films like to have the mise-en-scène at such a minimum to where it seems as if nothing is happening. Some directors have a preference for keeping the camera at a long or medium-long shot to maintain verisimilitude, letting the scene play out in sequence.
There are many fantastic slow films, but these 20 films are emblematic of what the style/technique has to offer.
This is my personal movie list which contains all movies throught all times and all countries. Each entry touched me so deeply and so strongly that I would recommend any to each person who ask me to suggest him/her a masterpiece.

The key to a great musical accompaniment in a film is imperceptibility. When a song is so perfect for a movie moment, audiences won’t even notice it until the scene has already begun. The fit is intuitive. But listening back to a soundtrack after seeing a movie immediately can create a different experience. The melodies and lyrics conjure visual memories from those other stories. Sometimes, though, a soundtrack stands on its own, independent of the film that united those individual tracks. Whatever the situation, movie soundtracks offer essential cultural contributions to both movies and music, and we’ve rounded up the 50 best of all time.
The Seattle International Film Festival is the largest film festival in the United States, with more than 155,000 people attending each year. The 25-day event held each May is renowned for presenting over 400 features, short films, and documentaries gathered from more than 85 countries.

The best order for all Star Wars films. Based on the Machete Order, but adds Episode I and all other films that came out after the first two trilogies.
Optional (mainly when rewatching):

Basically as it's name say's, my personal favourite 100 movies. I can't decide enough to put them in order, maybe i will edit it at a later date though ;-)
N.B. Would also like to add that the films '9' and 'IT' were in my original 100 but the site would not let me include them for some strange reason...
I'd also like to point out this list took around 7 or 8 attempts of searching 100 movies 1 by 1 and adding them for it not to save afterwards, very annoying and time consuming, this will be my only list until a new way of making them is added, sort it out ICM ?!? :-/
