*Not actually true.

For someone who keeps droning on about the latest crunk-flute electrobop crossover from Luang Prabang you have some gall...

By favorite films, I mean films that I personally enjoy. Want to (or have) seen over and over. Not some sort of critical evaluation (although I might like a film better for some of the critical reasons). For instance, Aguirre Wrath of God is a stunning piece of film. But I'm not tempted to watch it again, vice a new film when in the video rental store.


Breaking Away
High Noon
The Great Escape
The Wizard of Oz
The Sound of Music
Star Wars (original trilogy, but if that is cheating first one)
It's a Wonderful Life
TLOTR (original trilogy, but if that is cheating first one)
Twelve O'clock High
In the Heat of the Night

How many Friday the 13th films are there?

Anyway, all of them, in no particular order except the Jason Takes Manhattan one at the top.

I think I actually saw 4 or 5 in that list.
I was about to suggest #7

what about

Warum läuft Herr R. Amok?
Despair - Eine Reise ins Licht
Nicht versöhnt oder Es hilft nur Gewalt wo Gewalt herrscht
Die Verlorene Ehre der Katharina Blum oder: Wie Gewalt entstehen und wohin sie führen kann

:)

It's not far off the exact kind of background I was brought up in.

Fortunately my father was not an incoherent sociopath given to fits of rage and wifebeating.

Between that and 'Small Faces' by the MacKinnons you have a good insight into my upbringing and experiences.
