Very thought provoking film.  Wonderful.  Yet very disturbing.

Again, another great (and warped) performance by Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Impossible.  Partly because I don't tend to 'fasten' to films the way I am apt to with music;  partly because I do enjoy a great many, so that a half dozen do not really break ahead of the pack.

Different take on this - I have one film which stands a mile above any other, and then dozens of others. For that reason, I can't do six, only one: Nosferatu (Murnau). For a zillion reasons

Can I have a "do-over?"

If it's up to me, I say you can.

Off the top of my head, and I'm sure I'm missing a bunch...

Casablanca
The Empire Strikes Back
The Lord of the Rings
Dr. Strangelove
Lawrence of Arabia
Duck Amuck
The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds,
Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils.
The motions of his spirit are dull as night,
And his affections dark as Erebus.
Let no such man be trusted.

-- William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice

That's the one where he gets into a battle with the animator who keeps changing backgrounds on him, right?  Classic.

I notice a lot of Kubrick on these lists.  Interesting, in that he was one of the directors most skilled at adapting existing music (usually classical) to his soundtracks.
