Inspired by @ListPrompts
  1. His Girl Friday
    Screwball comedy at its best.
  2. The Women
    The 1939 Joan Crawford version, please. I will watch anything with Crawford in it, but this is the one where I first saw her, so it holds a special place.
  3. Miller's Crossing
    Surprisingly hard not to make this list a Coen brothers lovefest, but I limited myself to two. This is a criminally underappreciated gem.
  4. Trainspotting
    This knocked my socks off the first time I saw it in theatres, and still wows me.
  5. Touch of Evil
    Orson Welles at the top of his game.
  6. The Usual Suspects
    The best twist in cinematic history; that mug drop is a perfect slice of cinerama. Kobayashiiiiii!!!
  7. The Big Lebowski
    The Coens are an embarrassment of riches, but The Dude abides.
  8. Rushmore
    A perfect movie. Bill Murray should have been a lock for an Oscar nod for this scene alone
  9. Pulp Fiction
    Half this list could have been Tarantino films, but Pulp Fiction can hold the fort; brash, brilliant, laugh-out-loud funny - it's everything I love about his movies.
  10. Goodfellas
    I will never get over the fact this lost Best Picture to Dances with Wolves. Hands-down my favourite movie of all time; I can't even choose a particular scene to single out I love the whole that much. And the lines! "Funny how? Funny like I'm a clown? I amuse you?" or the freeze on "One day some of the kids from the neighborhood carried my mother's groceries all the way home. You know why? It was outta respect." I've watched it countless times, and will never get tired of it.
