The 85 films I've seen average an 8.5 from me, and that ain't bad. Rules of the Game is the highest on your list that I haven't seen, and it actually arrives from Netflix this week - I can't wait. Great list, very eclectic and thoughtful.

Thanks man!

Rules of the Game is absolutely great. I'm sure it was a big inspiration to Robert Altman and P.T. Anderson's multi-character dramas. I think you'll like it a lot.

Nice list, though I don't think The Royal Tenanbaums is a William Freidkin film from 1973.

I'd also recommend, as painful as it may feel, to kick The Goonies off in favor of Heavenly Creatures, as the list seems completely Peter Jackson film free.

Jules - re Royal Tenenbaums. Oops. Better fix that.

This list is fuckin' hard. I just saw Once Upon a Time in America, and that's gotta go on here somewhere too. But I don't want to bump anythign off. Khaaaaaaan!
