the original black and white version of "the manchurian candidate" with frank sinatra.

"the station agent"-great indie flick

"the war room"-great documentary featuring george stephanopoulos ( ) and james carville running the '92 clinton/gore campaign.

Would "Equilibrium" with Christian Bale count?

i find the original manchurian candidate was more stressful and suspensful (i mean that in a good way)

i love the remake but i spend too much time drooling over liev schreiber

sure

i like sifi alot

it is on cable quite a bit, too

another Bale film

The Machinist

Quote:
The producers of the film claim that Christian Bale dropped from about 180 pounds in weight down to about 120 pounds in weight to make this film. They also claim that Bale actually wanted to drop down to 100 pounds, but that they would not let him go below 120 out of fear that his health could be in too much danger if he did. His diet consisted of one can of tuna and an apple per day. His 63 pound weight loss is said to be a record for any actor for a movie role.
more amazing than what dinero did for Raging Bull

David Lynch's "Lost Highway"

Not for the faint-hearted. Prepare to have your view of cinema changed.

"The Parallax View" - brilliant paranoia 1970's thriller

Also two great Brit-flicks - "Withnail and I" and "The Long Good Friday"

I saw station agent too...loved it.
Lost Highway was freaky..as was blue velvet and mullhollad dr.



id have to say one that you may not have seen that is super would be Box of Moonlight w/ John Torturro and Sam Rockwell
They have showed it on Bravo a couple times..it most likely wont be at your local video store...but its a great flick
I bought my own copy of it a couple years ago..hadda order it special
