I can’t really put them in any order, but here’s my top 10.

Snatch
Fifth Element
Shawshank Redemption
Kill Bill 1&2
City of God (Citade de Deus)
Interview with a Vampire
The Professional
The Matrix (The first one only)
Gangs of New York
The Princess Bride

I Tend to judge my top ten movies that I can watch at any time of the day. I love movies like Citizen Kane and Casablanca, but really those are more of movies you need to be in the mood to watch.

Yeah I was surprised too. It’s not too often are people willing to admit that they like a movie about and underground fetish group who’s hobbies include getting into a massive car wreck, and then having wild crazy sex to get themselves off, but then again, he might be referring to the other Crash movie.

Not a bad movie, but after seeing it a couple times, I don’t want to see it again.

I’m not much into repeat movie experiences. Saw it once. Loved it. Great message at a time when it was/is needed.

Traveler, just in case your looking for more bizarre pleasure-fest films like Crash, you can check out check out the Secretary. That movie also has David Spader in it. That is, if thats your kind of movie…

Honestly, I did not know that a “Crash” movie existed other than the one I linked to. I loved the way my “Crash” addressed prejudice.

Now, as to The Secretary, I saw that a couple of years ago. Quite liked it too, but for other reasons.  tongue rolleye

Koyaanisqatsi!  That’s my kind of movie!  One of the best. I haven’t seen the sequel(can’t remember name)but I was led to understand it wasn’t nearly as good.
I’ve made my own Koyaanisqatsi videos from time to time tongue laugh . My absolute favorite genre of film.

Koyaanisquatsi is a great film, right up there for me as well. I think the sequel was called Powaqqatsi or something, and yes, it isn’t nearly as good. Also loved The Third Man. Really, it’s impossible to coherently narrow a “best of” down to some particular number ...

It’s a trilogy, no? Koyaanisqatsi, Powaqqatsi, and Naqoyqatsi. Anybody see all three?
