Inspired by @ListPrompts I don't claim this list won't change the next time I think about it but these are all movies that hit me hard or spoke to my heart or came along at the perfect moment or changed my way of thinking or otherwise amazed me. Also there are 11 here, but one of them is a short film so it's really more like 10 1/2.
