    great film... but unfortunately it is glorifying pedophilia. Sometimes it's subtle, but other times not so much.

    Whoever wrote this film is 100% a pedophile... shocking revelation, I know.

    it only glorifies pedophilia if you're a pedophile. there's no nudity or even touching. it's a father/daughter relationship. every girl looks up to a great father figure with that kind of devotion. she thinks she's in love with him because he's the first positive male role model she's ever had. if you got anything sexual out of a boy with long hair then you're a creep. I hope you're just speaking in general. I never had a problem with the movies tone and I even watched it with friends 15 years ago. we all were really into it for Gary Oldman and Leon. Natalie Portmans character is more known for her going through hell with her family and wanting retribution then having to grow up fast. Leon's a guy that's shut off and never had a family and he leaves her everything after finally having someone to care about. it's wholesome. grow up and put your dick away

    big difference between arguable and your favorite movies or what you think should be the 5 best

    it could be argued that the 5 greatest movies ever are citizen Kane, gone with the wind and 3 other insanely old ones. as long as the movies were at one point in time all considered on that tier then its arguable. what stops them from being looked at that way is personal preference/time/age/advancements/bias etc...

    it's like bill Russell being in the top 5 all time. we all know he wouldn't even be top 100 if compared with guys from the last 30 years. but we judge him for his time.

    there isn't another year that had 5 movies that have that kind of lasting power/impact/popularity.. and that year there was really 7 if you count the jim Carrey movies

    Why unfortunate?

    Ain't nothing wrong with a little kiddies sexual tension done nicely.

    It's one of the things that makes the movie special.

    Although I didn't enjoy it. Just ok to me.
