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.
