    Being There- Peter Sellers masterpiece. Full of human condition, charm and humor only Peter could pull off.

    He Ni Zai Yi Qi (Together)- Chinese movie about a father helping his violin prodigy son. Touching story. The fathers love for his son is crushing.

    Casablanca -(take this over CK) Greatest love story of all time. Greatest movie of all time. Greatest male lead actor of all time. Bogie rules.

    Wizard Of Oz- (Still makes me cry hearing Somewhere Over The Rainbow. And the Scarecrow song is still the best sing along ever. Im a kid again when I watch it with my nieces and nephews. And any movie that can take me there so well, has to be a great thing)

    Leolo- (French) a descent into the madness of a child that has you arrive into the mad world without knowing.
