Here's something much simpler than my previous thread that was difficult to maintain. Simply list your five favorite movies with the director next to it in parentheses, akin to the "your favorite album" thread. Pretty simple this time. If you want, you can tell why you like it so much or something. As for me, here's what my analytical sort of taste tells me: 1. Schindler's List (Spielberg) - Incredibly powerful anti-war film that depicts the scenes and emotions with great force. The narration, artistic direction, and directing are all triumphant, paired with it's striking approach to real events. 2. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (Gondry) - A combination of fantasy and romance, this odd and delightful flick manages to play at my heartstrings very well. Using the fictional side of the plot as a device, this manages to go deep into human emotions. 3. Citizen Kane (Welles) - What can I say? This is the favorite movie of every old, watered down critic who refuses to acknowledge "Star Wars" as the best movie ever. I agree with them, this movie is an incredible feat of storytelling. 4. 2001: A Space Odyssey (Kubrick) - At first, I had absolutely no idea what was happening, but once I did understand, that precision of it all astounded me. The perfection to every detail was so incredible. The best directed movie ever created possibly. 5. Spirited Away (Miyazaki) - This anime movie manages to capture themes of Japanese mythology, dislocation, and unfamiliarity with a lot of fascination. The best animated movie I have ever seen, just inching out my second favorite, WALL-E.
