Here we go...

The Big Lebowski
Pulp Fiction
Lawrence of Arabia
The Godfather
Dr. Stranglelove: OHILTSWALTB
Chasing Amy
The Royal Tenebaums
Three Kings
A Hard Days Night
Seven Samurai

and I think that covers most all of them.

I have to divide this in two categories:

Non-Kubrick films and Kubrick´s

Non. (As for today)

Mulholland Dr.
Heaven - Tykwer

Dr. Strangelove
The Shining
Paths of Glory

Someone here just mentioned Secrets and lies, I most say, that is a terrific film, could be one of the best dramas ever, the only one scene that comes to my mind that outshines it in a dramatic sense is when Julianne Moore is in a drugstore and she's pissed off because the guys there won't give her the medication it's from the film.... do I really have to mention this film? Can't believe didn't include it, I have the feeling that when I finally see PDL it will be upthere.

Good point, I'd say Bob Fosse is a very underrated director. So many gems!

My favorite postmillenial film so far is probably Morvern Callar. I need to see it a few more times.
""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."
