    Hmmm...tough one.

    "Battleship Potemkin" is one of my all-time favorites. Far ahead of its time and stiil modern in its presentation. Directed and edited by one of the true geniuses of the medium, Sergei Eisentstein.

    "Blue Velvet" by David Lynch and "Citizen Kane" by Orson Welles are (naturally) WAY up there. Let's not forget about "The Third Man" either huh? ;)

    I love film! So many films are woth mentioning that having a "favorite" is truly impossible.

    Hmmm thats a hard question...very hard.

    But i can't really tell my favorite movies since movies are so different from another to compare them...

    I really like Taxi and Taxi 2 but i can't say that they are my favorite...

    hehe, blue velvet, hey who dubbed it as something like "The Hardy Boys go to ####"?

    David Lynch films are really odd, but they're good, and better than Tarantino's darker films.

    Here are my favorites

    Rushmore (wes anderson and owen wilson can write some #### good scripts)

    Goodfellas

    Bullitt

    Back to the Future II

    The Front

    Sleeper

    Reality Bites

    Swingers

    Alien Nation

    Superman II

    Midnight Cowboy

    Groundhogs Day

    ...

    yeah, just there are so many, just as 3rdman said. THis is just the tip of the iceburg.

    Actually it was David Lynch himself that quoted the film in that way. I love David Lynch's work...their so original. Have any of you seen "Wild at Heart?" It's a twisted take on the "Wizard of Oz"...just excellent!

    Akira

    Performance

    Taxi Driver

    Goodfellas

    If..

    Eraserhead

    Il Postino

    Cinema Paradiso

    In no particular order. Anyone into stylish action films should check out Dobermann, a French film directed by Jann Kounen. Top notch, they should make a game of it.
