His Girl Friday (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0032599/). (and yes I know none of you have ever heard of it since it came out in 1940). but I love Cary Grant and his banter with Rosalind Russell puts all stupid chick flicks to shame. Plus Howard Hawks (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001328/) as a director kicks ass. He directed the original Scarface in 1932 for instance, but also excellent films like the one above, Bringing Up Baby (another excellent Cary Grant film with my favorite Kate Hepburn) and even westerns like Rio Bravo (with John Wayne). At any rate His Girl Friday is my favorite, but it's really difficult to pick just one. I have a lot in different genres and represenative of different times in film history. (I was a film major and thus a certified lifetime movie junkie).

we're not all knuckledraggers here... "His Girl Friday" is a very well known film. i've seen it once or twice myself.

it's not possible to pick one film as my favorite. but if i use the criteria that the film should be so good that you'd be willing to stop and watch it if it's on TV anytime you see it even though you own the DVD, and that you can easily watch it once a year on DVD and not get sick of it, then there is one film i'd choose off the top of my head, though if you gave me a couple of months, i'd probably be able to come up with others.... anyway, for me it would be the full Band of Brothers miniseries. i consider that 1 long film, like i consider the LOTR trilogy to be 1 long film.

If I had to pick one film... it would be the original Fight Club - that is, Ingmar Bergman's Persona.

Same philosophical themes as Fight Club. Nearly the same story line (minus the fighting), and Bergman was way ahead of his time.

ditto. Between those two, Lord of the Rings is the winner.....because the casting was perfect. I never have seen a movie after reading the books and been completely impressed as I was with the LOTR movies.

But......band of brothers was very good and seeing Schwimmer as the type A+++ jerk captain Sobel was priceless. It should be noted that Winters credited Sobel with preparing his guys as good as they could be for war. Sobel couldn't lead in battle, however, but he did have an important role.

While on the subject of war-related movies, Gran Torino is a favorite. Mostly because of the perfect anti-pc dialogue. I miss the days when opinions could be launched at will.

Mogulseeker

I'm not seeing the correlation... maybe I'll have to actually watch the movie.

David Fincher clearly borrowed from Persona.

The film is in Swedish and takes place on the island of Faro, Sweden.

It's about an actress living in an insane asylum. In the middle of a play she just stops speaking and it lasts for weeks, so her husband has her committed and after a while the head doctor sends her away to live in an island summer cottage owned by the doctor. A nurse comes along.

The nurse and the patient are polar opposites... the patient a complete nihilist and the nurse a productive member of soceity going through the motions of what she is supposed to be doing. The film centers around the dialogue of the nurse talking to the patient - just about her life and alienation.

It's kind of graphic and explicit for an old, artsy film. There's a scene where the patient's blind husband visits her, so the patient uses the nurse to talk to him. Not knowing it's actually the nurse, they have sex.

The film is loaded with the same existential philosophical themes as Fight Club - alienation from society, failure to connect with your own reality, nihilism, agnst for the monotony of everyday life and disdain for people who live for it.

Towards the end of the film, it's implied (but never confirmed) that the nurse and the patient are the same person, with the famous merging of faces scene (below). There's also this long duplicated scene, one which focuses solely on the nurse and the other on the patient (with the exact same dialogue).

There's even a part of Persona where an erect penis is flashed for a single frame. And just like Fight Club there are several scenes that feature just one of the women speaking where a single frame will flash the other woman.

<iframe title="YouTube video player" width="480" height="390" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/rYUU6oCAErU" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

The Simpsons actually spoofed this film in the episode "Lost Verizon" - http://simpsons.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Inga-Bar_Beerman's

Along with Fight Club, this film was also the basis for Woody Allen's "Another Woman (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ruYS5m79e9w)" and David Lynch's "Mulholland Dr. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=96R9MG0DxLc)"

Fincher, Allen and Lynch all credit Bergman as a major influence in their work - as do Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, Stanley Kubrick, etc.

So I do watch it at least once a year, probably average 3 times a year, and I listen to the soundtrack quite often.

I've been saying for about 35 years now that Star Wars, The Godfather, and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest are my 3 all-time favorite movies.

But if I had to pick just one...I dunno... it would be tough, but I guess I would have to choose The Godfather.

I have seen this movie more times than the other 2 for sure, but I just never get tired of it. To the contrary, I always see something new in it, or in a different way every time I see it.

Just a great classic that deserves its place in the top 2 or 3 greatest movies of all time.

Can't pick one tho - far too hard. Godfather, Star Wars, Bullitt, etc.....

If pressed into a corner I would probably squeak out the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Shot as one gigantic movie and then edited to 3, has never been done before. The continuity was perfect by doing it that way.

That's my opinion at least.

Groundhog Day

I've been watching old classics recently, movies that are on IMDB's top 200.

Once Upon a Time in the West is one of the most beautifully filmed movies I've ever seen. The score is incredible and the acting is top notch. I HIGHLY recommend watching it if you've never seen it.

Chinatown is amazing

The Sting instantly became one of my favorite movies after just one viewing.

The New York Times agrees with you. They called Groundhog Day one of the 10 best American films. I have always felt it was hugely underrated.

Fincher, Allen and Lynch all credit Bergman as a major influence in their work - as do Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, Stanley Kubrick, etc.

Good write up. Hard to name a more important (or impressive) director. Winter Light is in my top 5 all time.

The Godfather

BEYOND A DOUBT!! The entire trilogy is awesome, although 1 and 2 are my favorites! I'd love to see them do a number 4 soon, but doubt it will happen.

I can't fathom my favorite but The Natural is high up there!

The Godfather seems to be the most rewatched film so far.


Is there a favorite of the three. I have a slight preference for Godfather II

Part II is my favorite. Hated Part III.
