That's right, you have the proper order there.

I caught a screening at the tail of the summer, was incredibly jazzed for it and still enjoyed it, but that feeling of it being my favorite film wasn't there anymore. I enjoy it greatly, all 3 films really, but it's not as high up there for me as it used to be. It's barely outside of the Top 10.

Certainly understandable. Surprised Ghostbusters didn't make an appearance as well.

Also, makes me wonder what the basterd's favorite film is now. Perhaps I just don't pay attention to things. And perhaps we'll find out if we do an all-time favorites thread.

I don't think you know my all-time favorite.

Hint:

It is not Dune.

Hint 2:

It is not Empire.

Hint 3:

It's not Blade Runner.

Hint 4:

Fuck you.

1. Paris, Texas (Wenders, 1984)
2. Reds (Beatty, 1981)
3. Once Upon a Time in America (Leone, 1984)
4. My Dinner with Andre (Malle, 1981)
5. The Last Metro (Truffaut, 1980)
6. Blue Velvet (Lynch, 1986)
7. Ran (Kurosawa, 1985)
8. sex, lies and videotape (Soderbergh, 1989)
9. Crimes and Misdemeanors (Allen, 1989)
10. The Unbearable Lightness of Being (Kaufman, 1988)

The 1980s is probably my least favorite decade for films (btw, I enjoyed the exchange on this thread a lot).

A City of Sadness will surely make its way in this list eventually, but I've only seen it recently and haven't had the necessary time to fully digest it.

I love how cheap it is yet leaves you with epiphanies that compete with more expensive classics.

Crimes is very high up on my 80's list, though I'm not sure even on an unfiltered list (I had Allen's Stardust Memories) if it would crack the 10. The Unbearable Lightness of Being almost made it, but I forgot I already had a Kaufman on there.

Sex Lies would have made mine a few years back. The first independent film I ever saw in the theatre, and definitely one that I learned from greatly as a filmmaker. Soderbergh's book about the making of the film (from the script writing to the Cannes experience) is a fantastic read.
