Here's my five (say it with me), "IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER":

1) Magnolia
2) Waking the Dead
3) 8 1/2
4) Amelie
5) End of the Affair
or
    Last Year at Marienbad

10.  THREE KINGS
*The visual style is so fresh and clean but at the same time it's gritty.  David O. Russell is a good up-and-coming director to lookout for.*

09.  JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS
*From the writers/directors Harry Elfont and Deborah Kaplan that brought you CAN'T HARDLY WAIT.  The production design alone is worth the view.  It is very good and it's very clever for a teen movie.  Not too many people would agree with me about how great this movie I but my taste are my own.*

08.  NORTH BY NORTHWEST
*My favorite Alfred Hitchcock film.  It has the best action sequence in film history.  The last big production film from Hitchcock.

07.  BEFORE SUNRISE
*The cutest romantic comedy/drama out there from writer/director Richard Linklater.  It's so smart and cool!*

06.  CHUNGKING EXPRESS
*This film tuned me on to foreign art films.  Director Wong Kar-Wai is brilliant, it's very fresh and stylish, simply cool.  It's put out by Quentin Tarantino's rolling thunder pictures.*

05.  ZERO EFFECT
*The most unappreciated movie of the 90s!  It's one of the best mystery/crime films to come out of Hollywood.  Director Jake Kasdan also directed ORANGE COUNTY and TVs UNDECLARED.  If you liked the USUAL SUSPECTS (which is the most overrated movie of the 90s) then you should check this one out. *

04.  JACKIE BROWN
*This is my favorite film from Quentin Tarantino.  It has the sharpest dialogue and the most focused style out of his films.  It has the one thing Jean-Luc Godard said about making a good film, "all you need to make a good film is a girl and a gun".  The soundtrack kicks fuckin' ass with "Across 110th Street".*

03.  MAGNOLIA
*WOW!  Such a smart and well written film.  From the one and only Paul Thomas Anderson.  Genius!  This is an example of how film is definitely art.  It is a classic.*

02.  RUSHMORE
*An enjoyable film with one of the best written characters in films.  In my opinion, the best character in film, Max Fischer played by Jason Schwartzman.  Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson are very clever writers and Wes Anderson is a colorful American director.*

01.  CITIZEN KANE
*I know, but it's sorta cop-out.  It is the best film ever made and I really can't put anything at #1 because I know CITIZEN KANE is good.  Orson Wells was a revolutionary writer/director.*

honorable mention:

ADRENALINE DRIVE by Shinobu Yaguchi
THE VIRGIN SUICIDES by Sofia Coppola
BAND OF OUTSIDERS by Jean-Luc Godard
DONNIE DARKO by Richard Kelly
GHOST WORLD by Terry Zwigoff

WAKING LIFE by Richard Linklater
PERFECT BLUE by Satoshi Kon
THE 400 BLOWS by Francois Truffaut

Jesus. You can't just limit it to 5. I'm going to begin rambling...

Donnie Darko
Titus
Full Metal Jacket
Patton
Chasing Amy
Spirited Away
Das Boot
Almost Famous
Seven Samurai
Rushmore
Dark City
Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels
Trainspotting
Pi
Clerks
The Man Who Wasn't There
Ghost World
Quills
Fight Club
High Fidelity
American Beauty
True Romance
Pulp Fiction

There's tons I'm forgetting, but I'd better stop for the sake of bandwidth.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

Wow, it's great to see so many great movies listed here. Here's my own top five, as it stands right now this morning, in no order.

Do The Right Thing
Buffalo 66
The Empire Strikes Back
The Shining
Punch Drunk Love


Man, I never realized how limited five was. I'm going to now instigate the use of an alternate number system in which the contents of lists are doubled while still retaining the original value. Thus, my top five films are:

Do The Right Thing
Buffalo 66
The Empire Strikes Back
Raising Arizona
The Shining
Taxi Driver
Hedwig And The Angry Inch
Punch Drunk Love
2001
Rushmore
