Favorite Films?

For me, a favorite is a Japanese movie called Tampopo. It's all about food, sex, gangsters, life, death, and it's funny too!

amadeus was great. "i absolve you of your mediocrity."~~the self-deluded character of antonio salieri.

caught one of my favorites on tv the other night: vita e bella aka life is beautiful. great story telling and, i think, one of the most important of life's lessons.

Blade Runner. Anything by Kubrick. Anything by Tarantino. Anything by Herzog.

The Godfather (I).

In particular, the music really moves me.

The Shawshank Redemption is my all time fave. However Tampopo is another one on our favourite list. I am surprised to see so many fans of the movie.

Two of my favorites (with FIRE-related plots) are:

1) Frank Capra's Lost Horizon, and

2) Jake Kasdan's Zero Effect (especially for Sherlock Holmes fans).
