If you could recommend just one movie, which one would it be? What is your most favourite movie that you can watch over and over again?

HAH you would.

I would have to say “fear and loathing” or “where the buffalo roam”

Kubrick, Tarantino, Wes anderson films are all good

I’d check out “The life aquatic” if you haven’t (I’d choose that as my favorite)

“Life of Pi.”

The best film ever about dealing with life on life’s terms?

The complete film for your consideration.

I bought the book, never read it. The movie came out, didn’t get a chance to see it. will try.

This is hard. I really love ”In the Mood for Love" and “2046” by Wong Kar Wai.

And “Life of Pi” meant things to me that the author and director never intended; I watched it during the last year of my cat’s life, as he was fighting kidney failure. To me, it’s the story of a boy and his cat, and how they save each other’s lives.

Jinx. You owe me a Coke.

(Actually I prefer Pepsi.)

The book was much better - but the movie was visually Fantastic!

It’s the most beautiful movie I’ve ever seen. I think I cried for twenty minutes straight in the parking lot of the movie theatre after it was over

What do you look for in a movie? What are your favorites? I have a tendency to love visually breathtaking films, with an undercurrent of dreaminess and sadness.

The Big Lebowski

That’s one of the best.

Sin city is a good one. Visually unique.

If you can appreciate video game/stoner comedy than:

I don’t have a favourite movie actually, I like watching old films in black and white, but I only recently started watching movies again, I kinda would get restless and fall asleep because of the meds. I will look into everyone’s recommendations and start watching again at night. I remember I really liked animations too but now it’s kind of a hassle to sit through them. I changed so much because of this illness.

hey this is really interesting, I thought it was a trailer. Have you seen ‘la grande seduction’ ?

Yeah. It’s about that village who need to hire a Doctor! Good movie, the guy who plays the Doctor has weird eyes man, a blue one and a green one. I liked it!

Oh gosh, a more recent one I loved was “Only Lovers Left Alive”, about two vampires in love, and what there is to live for after you feel there’s nothing left. It’s in a very odd style that some people find frustrating, and it’s more about an idea than a plot, but it’s seriously the most dizzyingly romantic film I think I’ve ever seen.

“In the Mood for Love” is about a man and a woman who begin to suspect their spouses are having an affair with each other. “2046” is about that same man and the relative wreck he makes of his life in the aftermath. Also in a very particular style, so your mileage may vary.
