Well I haven't seen many movies (compared to a lot of you)... But I will post my favorites:

A Clockwork Orange
Memento
Gone with the Wind
Schindler's List
Mulholland Dr.


omg this girl is so cool, what do you think SoNowThen ? Isn't she cool ?


I'm sorry, did I put a burr in your ass over something I did indirectly? Why the hardcore sarcasm?

If you must know, I think Clockwork is worthy of being on a list such as this. Certainly not the other four. IMO. But really, who cares?

Cool.Cool.Cool.Cool. -- those were for you, Pas.
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Y'know, like "piss you off", or "insult you".
That kinda thing.

I think it's somewhat of a hick term.

ie. "Joe-Bob, you sure put a burr in my ass when you shot my cow by accident."

i must say this is incredibly evil of anyone to demand a top five...i will list five, but will surely be pissed at myself later for not including "this movie", so here i go:
"Last Tango in Paris"
"Amelie"
"Magnolia"
"Fanny and Alexander"
"Jules and Jim"

I have far more films waiting to be thrown out there, but i will adhere to the rules here for once and there you go

Taxi driver- movie that made me be a filmmaker at age 9

Magnolia- movie that reaffirmed my decision at age 18

PDL/ In the mood for love/ Jules et Jim- Trilogy that makes me believe THERE IS LOVE somewhere

Pierrot Le Fou - movie i had been obliged to watch my entire life but i learnt to love

Rushmore- the movie that puts a smile upon my face over and over again

Mulholland Dr- movie that makes me wanna be 15min inside Lynch's head a lá Malkovich....

Why obliged?

If necessary, that's how I plan to show people my love for Godard.
