What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962)
  A romp through insanity starring Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. I have seen this film at least a dozen times.I am known to spout a line or two from this film completely out of context in everyday conversation. "But ya are Blanche. Ya are in that chair!"
The Changeling (1980)
  This is one of the most overlooked yet subtley chilling horror films. Since alot of the horror films of nowaday tend to have a startling "cheese" factor...if you asked me to recommend a good horror flick-this would be it.
A Star Is Born (1954)
  Judy Garland shines in this big Hollywood musical drama. Leaves you glued to the screen wondering how 3 hours passed and longing for more.
Happiness (1998)
Not Rated
  Brilliant dark comedy from director Todd Solondz. I have been hard pressed to find a film that encompasses such darkness, realness and comedy all in one.
Amelie (2001)
  This is one of those rare films that I see that causes me to want to see EVERYTHING else the director has done. Amazing plot, incredible use of color and visuals. A very uplifting film that may cause you to fall in love with the entire universe.
Being There (1979)
  Was Peter Sellers nominated for this film? He should have been. This film has hands down the BEST use of dialogue and wordplay I have ever seen. Moreover it is a great satire about our "tv nation".
Play Misty for Me (1971)
  A DJ stalked by an obsessed fan, perfect suspense and just the right amount of darkness. This was fatal attraction before "Fatal Attraction." A rarely heard of film that I recommend to everyone.
Orlando (1992)
  Great visuals. Great soundtrack. Amazing and engaging plot. Seen it a million times. Own my own copy. I think it's that good.
Steal This Movie (2000)
  A very realistic look into the life of one of America's most intriguing counter-culture activists. A very realistic and moving portrayal. I laughed, I cried, I wanted to organize a peace rally.
Grey Gardens (Criterion Collection) (1976)
Not Rated
  My numero uno absolute favorite documentary of all time. Centers around the bizarre lives of the aunt and first cousin of Jacquelyn Kennedy Onassis. The two women are 100% out of their minds. I wonder if John Waters was inspired by this film. I bet he was
Naked States (2000)
  A documentary about an artists quest to photograph nudes in every state. His work is beautiful and moving and the film raises many questions about the nature of "nature" and the human form/nudity/art/life/expression. A+++++
Holy Smoke! (1999)
  This is one of my favorite films simply because I really enjoyed Kate Winslet and Harvey Keitel's on-screen dynamic.
Desperate Living (1977)
  One of my favorite John Water's films.
Baraka (Special Edition) (1993)
  The single most moving film I have ever seen. Beyond words. In fact, the film itself contains none.
Harold and Maude (Criterion) (1971)
  Probably my favorite cult classic. A visual and emotional ride through dark and light, adolesence and adulthood, introspection and comedy.
Sliding Doors (1998)
  This movie centers around "What If?" Like, what if you missed a train one day and it alters the entire course of your life? This movie really gets your wheels turning but this is a subject that may cause your brain to implode if you think too deeply on it
Hands On a Hard Body (1997)
  You cannot imagine how much this film will cause you to care which contest participant will win the truck. Watch as the contestants slowly go insane from exhaustion in order to win the prized vehicle. I couldn't believe I got so sucked into this film.
Donnie Darko (2001)
  A rare masterpiece. Impossible to explain in 2 sentences.
