@cicerone imposter,
I agree with you, ci, re the original Psycho. It's a true thriller and very well done. We just watched Rear Window which is another terrific Hitchcock film.

Frenzy affected me more than Hitchcock's other films.

@JPB,
Agreed. Rear Window is outstanding. And it's so much fun to see Raymond Burr as the "baddie", long before he became Perry Mason.

Apocalypse Now ...

... but King Rat, The Great Escape, Citizen Cane, Born on the Fourth of July and Gone With the Wind are all close contenders. So hard to pick just one.

Pulp Fiction without a doubt on my list. So is 2001, A Space Odyssey.

"Pulp Fiction" is very good. "2001" is one of the greatest stories ever told.

"Wait until dark" would be up there with Audrey Hepburn, Alan Arkin, and Richard Crenna,

I think so also, Brandon...although there are some here who apparently think it sucked. They seem astonished that I would put it as my favorite. It was an amazing picture for its time...and today it stands up beautifully.

I notice a couple of Kubrik movies have been mentioned here.

@Frank Apisa,
There are a number of movies mentioned on this thread that I don't like, but I am being nice about it. Smile

I'm appreciating all POVs!

keep 'em coming!


We're watching one right now that I can't figure out for the life of me how it ever got on the queue. One of the most bizarre movies I've ever seen (another thread title, perhaps). It's called Septien and I'll never watch it again!

@Finn dAbuzz,
ok, but you have to pick the top one and then the rest can fall in no particular order.

@BillRM,
Yeah, "Wait Until Dark" was an excellent movie. Haven't watched it in ages -- added to the queue.

I think the question was a poor one....a better one would be "what film do you come back to most time and again, which through the years continues to move you....mean something to you?"

Then why don't you start your own thread and ask that question, rather than bitching about the question posed in this one?
