A resonably good list.  pleased to see "Boogie Nights" on there.  Would you add anything?

Someone quoted it the other day, but:

He held on. The dolphin and all the rest of its pod turned and swam out to sea, and still he held on. This is it, he thought. Then he remembered that they were air-breathers too. It was going to be all right.

If docs count, Lost in La Mancha and Hearts of Darkness should be on there too.

I wonder if Bowfinger holds up...I remember loving it.

I tried watching Bowfinger again recently.  Didn't hold up too well for me.   And Hearts of Darkness is one of my favorite docs ever.
