Dr. Strangelove (Stanley Kubrick)
My Life as a Dog (Lasse Hallstrom)
Wild Strawberries (Ingmar Bergman)
Waiting for Guffman (Christopher Guest)
City Lights (Charlie Chaplin)

Oh, and people still don't yet believe this, but "Eyes Wide Shut" will eventually be remembered not only as one of the best Kubrick films, but as one of the greatest films of its time (long, LONG after Quentin Tarrantino is forgotten).

I had a radio as a kid that would pick up tv stations, so I taped Kelly's Heroes, and practically memorised that flick!

Donald Sutherland stole the show in that one!

"HOOUU!!! Hooouu!!! Houu! Thats my other dog imitation!"

And my fave was about the paint filled shells. " It paints...pretty pictures"

Has everyone forgotten "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"?

This is the best film (so far) of the year and possibly (so far) the decade....

It is so hard to choose only 5. Being only 29, I have seen countless movies, and I do appreciate that some of you are older, but I can't really do black and white movies to often. I grew up with color, stereo sound, and then surround sound. I have seen most of the old standby classics such as Streetcar Named Desire, On the Waterfront, Casablanca, all of the James Dean movies, etc...but I am mostly a fan of movies within my lifetime with a few exceptions.

I based my selections on movies that I can watch over and over again and never get tired of them.



This was my criterion as well. In no order:

Triplets of Belleville

Mon Oncle (or anything by Tati, but this is my sentimental favorite)

North by Northwest

Les parapluies de Cherbourg

Scorsese: Raging Bull, Taxi Driver

Cronenberg: Rabid, Scanners, Spider

Egoyan: Calendar (his most overlooked & underrated), Exotica, Felicia's Journey

Eraserhead

Slacker

The Man Who Planted Trees -- probably my favorite film of all time; truly inspiring.

A big shout out to everyone who mentioned Tati and Ray Harryhausen!

oooh, I forgot Bergman's Fanny & Alexander

Just off the top of my head:

The Out of Towners - I've seen it umpteen times & still laugh my ass off every time Jack Lemon breaks his tooth on the Cracker Jacks.

Black Orpheus - beautiful cinamatography & a must for all Bosa Nova lovers.

Fargo - sick & funny.

Sunset Boulevard

The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly
