yeah.. those are my favorite "real" movies. my favorite "films." but there's a big part of me that really wants to find room for Don't Be a Manace and Idiocracy in there somewhere.

Man I hated requim for a dream I watched it a friends house and the drive back was one of the most depressing moments of our lives. Seriously depressing film that had me wtf is the point.

No particular order. This was hard because I like other movies just as well.

Nice to see Blood Simple mentioned - a pretty underrated Coen brothers movie. The ending was hysterical.



Let me see... really hard to narrow it down to five movies. All of my favourites are more recent actually. I can appreciate older films, and some of them I do love (like Strangelove, Taxi Driver, etc), but this era of filmmaking is just... more creative. At least in my mind. I'm more of a screenplay/story guy than I am interested in any technical aspects, even though again, I can appreciate them for what they are and the innovations they make.













Very subject to change, and others like Donnie Darko, The Matrix, Strangelove, The Truman Show, Being John Malkovich, Vanilla Sky, O Brother Where Art Thou, ugh there are too many. All of those could easily replace the aforementioned five, and I wouldn't think anything of it. Except Adaptation, I think that has to be in there no matter what.

I just checked out The Fountain based on your recommendation - damn, was that ever a trip. I was sucked completely into the ending, and the last, oh, half an hour of shiny lights and flying through space went by in about a second. Amazing movie, I'm going to rewatch and see if I can put some stuff together upon a second viewing (if there is anything to put together, lol). So many correlations in that movie.

Funny thing was I didn't even realize it was Aronofsky until I was checking out some reviews afterwards. It's definitely my favourite film of his - although it'll be interesting to see if The Wrestler can change that.

glad i could be of service. from your list of favorites you are obviously a fan of high concept films, so no suprise you enjoyed the fountain. rewatching deffinatly helps you put things together better, but there is so much subtext and symbolism that you actually end up with even more to think about.
adaption is a film that i have heard excellent things about and keep meaning to watch.
