    Default Your top 10 movies

    the title says it all.
    we already have a thread " top 10 soundtracks and top directors.
    It's pretty hard to limit it and choose only 10 , but why not

    Not in any particular order;

    1. Do The Right Thing
    2. M
    3. The 400 Blows/Les Quatre Cents Coups
    4. The Bicycle Thieves
    5. Before Sunrise
    6. Midnight Cowboy
    7. Goodbye Mr Chips
    8. Les Enfants du Paradis
    9. In The Mood For Love
    10. The Lives of Others

    Some are simply the best films ever made but some are just personal (The Lives of Others, In the Mood for Love). Nice thread and good to be reminded of what a wonderful life we can have.

    Altrahasis: THE ELEPHANT MAN almost made my list; it would probably be #11 or #12.

    JACE: It was a pleasant surprise to see SUNSHINE on your list. I'd never heard of it until this year; it seems too few Americans know about it.

    A couple years ago, I stumbled across the film one night purely by chance -- and it blew me away. I've since re-watched it a couple times. For me, part of the appeal of the film is its strange and unusual tone, varying wildly from straightforward realism to its funny, mythic take on reality, almost like a fairy tale. The fact that Ralph Fiennes plays so many different roles also factors in to that "oddness." I think it works beautifully and wonderfully -- but I can see how others might be put off by it. I wonder if that un-conventionality had anything to do with its reception (or lack thereof) in America.
