I always say Nashville is my favorite movie, but it's been a long time since I've seen it. I should revisit it. Could be that I'm younger than that now.

I love Paths of Glory, Playtime, Solaris. For some reason I've always preferred La Notte to L'Eclisse.

I always say Shawshank Redemption if someone asks.

For pure dialogue and actor interaction alone it's Glengarry Glen Ross. When Jack Lemmon talks his way into Bruce Altman's house to sell him real estate he doesn't want, the awkward exchange makes me squirm a little.

And of course the Brass Balls scene: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-AXTx4PcKI

My favorite movie is always the last really good one I've seen, usually changing about once a month. Tree of Life for now.

Right now it's Red Cliff

The movie is in Mandarin but it is epic and it is awesome. If one likes movies like Braveheart, The Patriot and Saving Private Ryan and if one doesn't mind subtitles, give it a look.

Hoop Dreams should be required viewing for all Americans. Go watch it for free on hulu.

Raising Arizona for comedy, and One Upon a Time in the West for drama.

My favorite movie would have to be Inside Man. The story is not too deep and would not probably work in really life but it they gave a good strategy how they got in and out of a bank safely.

Though it was no easy task to accomplish the mission as they had to blend with the victims at some points so that they would look like they were part of them. I really like this type movie, though I have no intentions of staging one.

As with The Godfather, the sequel was even better.

The movie I've watched the most times is Caddyshack. What brings you to this nape of the woods, neck of the wape?

I watched It's A Wonderful Life, while baking a couple apple pies last night. I had to stop for each pivotal moment that seemed like fate. Always a pleasure and the speeches, priceless.
