@izzythepush,
Never heard of it. From IMDB:

Quote:
A new commanding officer arrives at a remote castle serving as an insane asylum for crazy and AWOL U.S. Army soldiers where he attempts to rehabilitate them by allowing them to live out their crazy fantasies while combating his own long-suppressed insanity.


Looks very interesting!!!

@JPB,
It's the same guy that did The Exorcist, it's like One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest meets Apocalypse Now.

It's very funny at first, then becomes deadly serious about half way through.

Can't believe I forgot to mention 12 Angry Men. I don't know how many times I watched that.

Somebody mentioned To Kill A Mockingbird.

I have to tell you the story of how I saw it.

A friend at work, a black woman in her early 60's invited me to see the movie at a theater downtown that had shown movies from the 20's on and was re-opening.

It was a gorgeous theater with a side door that led to steps going to the balcony.
She told me: "Us black folk had to come through the side door and go directly up the steps to the balcony"

When the movie was over and the lights came up she asked me "Why you got tears in your eyes?"

@Ticomaya,
Okay, serious answer, because ^ was obviously NOT ...

"Dumb and Dumber". Classic.

But Godfather (I & II) and Chinatown merit consideration.

Deckard: [narrating] I don't know why he saved my life. Maybe in those last moments he loved life more than he ever had before. Not just his life - anybody's life; my life. All he'd wanted were the same answers the rest of us want. Where did I come from? Where am I going? How long have I got? All I could do was sit there and watch him die.

Some Like it Hot


I loved it the first time I saw it. Still love it.

I see something different each time I watch it.

@Ticomaya,
2001 is about 2.5 hours too long. The only thing worth while is the Straus (R) music.

Mine is "Pulp Fiction"

followed by "Valley of the Kings"

An impossible ask, love a lot of whats already been mentioned, especially Blade runner.

I'm going to say........ The fountain.

Which I believe, like Blade Runner is a slow burner and will one day be recognised for the great movie it is.

A truly excellent movie must have a truly excellent soundtrack.

@engineer,
Interesting! I grew up not too far from where the family settled after they moved to Vt.
