I used to have real problems when people asked me this. But now, I can safely say that my favourite film ever is:



Blue Velvet.



Sheer brilliance. If you asked me to name my favourite three films, that'd be difficult, but here are the contenders...



The Shawshank Redemption

The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser

Nightmare Before Christmas

Fargo

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

The Hills Have Eyes

The Omen

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974 version, obviously!)

Psycho (again, obviously the original)

Basket Case

Night of the Living Dead

Dawn of the Dead

Alien

Halloween



... yup, I realize most of those are horror movies!!

I loved pay it forward.



I also enjoyed the matrix trilogy (Though reloaded wasn't much of a film) and the original star wars trilogy.



Oh, and there's a short film called "Swinger" that i saw early morning on TV. It'sa great film. I have no idea who directed it, but it's excellent. It's about five minutes long, but those five minutes are used wisely.



(Edit - the film is by Gregor Jordon.)

Good Will Hunting

Waiting for Guffman

Clerks

the movie ive seen the most (as an adult) would have to be Reality Bites. I had (still have) crushes on Winona&Janeane in that film. Lately, the more i watch it the more 'flaws' i see in it, but i still love it.

Good Lord, someone else has seen Faraway So Close? Someone else lists it as their favorite movie? I was starting to think I was insane. I'm CRAZY about that one, but in the US nobody but my brother and I has seen it.

In this order, the best movies ever:

Faraway So Close

Wings of Desire

Dead Man Walking

Ghandi



And the guilty pleasures: Red Dragon and Silence of the Lambs
