Top Five There aren't much more movies than these that I would give 5 stars. So far these are my absolute favorite films. These really aren't in any order. I love these 5 just as much... 1 Leon the Professional 2 Donnie Darko 3 Whispering Corridors 2: Memento Mori 4 Audition 5 Mulholland Drive The Rest These movies are certainly not in order either. They are not necessarily my absolute favorite 50, but this is what comes to mind. 6 Vertigo 7 Fight Club 8 Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 9 Being John Malkovich 10 Memento 11 LA Confidential 12 Inland Empire 13 There will be Blood 14 Synecdoche, New York 15 Amelie 16 Ghost World 17 Rushmore 18 The Departed (Infernal Affairs is good too) 19 The City of Lost Children 20 Run Lola Run 21 American History X 22 1984 23 Savages 24 Gilda 25 12 Angry Men 26 Heat 27 The Breakfast Club 28 Fallen Angels 29 Three Kings 30 12 Monkeys 31 Cool Hand Luke 32 Casshern 33 House of Cards (the BBC series) 34 Rear Window 35 Evil Dead 2 36 Duck, you sucker! 37 Payback (Mel Gibson's remake) 38 O Brother Where Art though? 39 I Heart Huckabees 40 Ghost in the Shell (The Feature film) 41 The Elephant Man 42 The Dreamers 43 Seven Samurai 44 Snatch 45 The Usual Suspects 46 In Treatment Season 1 (Haven't seen Bi Tipule yet) 47 The Shining 48 Eraserhead 49 Pulp Fiction 50 The Empire Strikes Back I would love any recommendations you could think of based on the above. However, be warned, I am kind of the most finicky film goer ever. It's not surprising to hear me call a definite classic as overrated. Also another hint to help you help me, is that I'll take substance over style any day of the week, or a thinking movie over a cool one. I don't watch thousands of movies. I'm just searching for the few films that I will absolutely love on a personal level. I really do appreciate any effort in helping me find such. Here's a preemptive, "Much obliged" to those who try, and thank you for checking out my list.
