I tried to list my favorite films recently and it was impossible to stop..the list just kept growing and growing.

Lately, though...I've been in a "study mode"...watching or re-watching movies that I've loved. Here are a few:

Some Girls
Very stylized...nice symbolism used...and overall rather poetic.

Local Hero
Low key...but loaded with dry humor. Also makes you reflect on what's important in life.

Harold and Maude
If you've never seen this film, you need to drop whatever you're doing and go rent it.

Barry Lyndon
One of the very first movies filmed with all natural lighting, if I remember correctly. Kubrick wanted the lighting to appear as it would have during that period, so I believe they had to come up with some new technology at that time to pull it off. I love the "rambling" nature of the film...and have had a crush on Marisa Berenson ever since I first saw it.

This list could go on and on, too. Guess I've been watching more than I realized.

Uzumaki
Spirited Away (Japanese Anime)
Count of Monte Cristo (most recent adaptation)

I like these movies because they're engaging because the story lines are told well. Except for Uzumaki there are very few special effects.

Uzumaki - Interesting and very odd story line, kinda like a creepy japanese twilight zone, looks low budget but keeps you engaged.

Spirited Away - Lovely animation, watch it in a movie house and you'll really appreciate the artistry. The story line keeps you engaged ... a bit long but not too long. One reviewer called it "like a Japanese Alice in Wonderland but not"

I really enjoyed the latest adaptation of the Count of Monte Cristo beautiful imagery and one of the best adapted story lines - the great thing is that there is almost no "action" in the whole movie it moves along at a "slow" pace but engages you with all the emotional imagery. I thought it was just great, a "real" movie which I haven't experienced in a long time.

Agreed on SPIRITED AWAY. A real shame that it wasn't promoted well by Disney but that's par for the course. Disney just let MONONOKE HIME die in North America as well.

I thought COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO was passable. It moved along well and it had some high points, such as when he returns as the count to impress everyone with his riches. However, the sword fighting was a real let down and his confrontation with his friend pretty stale.
