Ballad of a Soldier. Banshun and 12 Angry Men are right up there too and basically equal but right now I'd say Ballad of a Soldier.

My top 5:

1. The Dark Knight
2. Inception
3. The Dark Knight Rises
4. Batman Begins
5. The Prestige
My father didn’t have the skill of a professional cameraman. The result? Avant-garde cinema.

Lost in Translation will always be number 1 but either Pierrot le fou or The Seven Samurai is the greatest film of all-time.

Are you the Imdb top 250 come to life.

I think Shawshank is number two as well. Frank Darabont's number two.

Well that was actually a good move. Tarr is a sous Tarkovsky. Godard and Ozu are originals.

Hey, Godard liked Fassbinder...and besides, I haven't forgotten the mean things you said about Rainer the other weekend. (I believe one of the words rhymed with "quack." ;) )

I doubt JLG is in my top ten...he's definitely a LOT higher than he was a few years ago (#77, ha ha...that was before Une femme mariée, Vivre sa vie, and and a few others that wowed me), but...my top ten is pretty hard to crack.

There are huge differences between Tarr and Tarkovsky, but I see what you mean. And Tarkovsky is surely the better director here.

Anyhow, I named Tarr instead of Tarkovsky because as far as I know, Tarkovsky has much more fans on IMDb-like sites.
