Which of the following ten movies that he considered very important influences* during the making of his sophomore feature film would you like to watch the most ? Alone or in a back to back double feature with Midsommar?

I like when directors clearly specify their primary influences in the interviews: it is really hard to find movies which were not influenced by at least 1-10 movies each, some may have much more. It's a natural process that has nothing to do wih plagiarism or unoriginality: it's just a reasonable tactic to use several other works which tackle simiar themes as a guide.

Hmm, maybe 'Black Narcissus' or 'Dogville.' There are some on the list that I haven't yet seen, though. I love this poll: the intro, the idea, the list, everything.
