Interesting results so far. Once the list is done I'll have to go back and look at a bunch of titles that I rated highly but didn't vote for. Maybe I don't remember them enough, but most I didn't consider to fit the theme. Teenage movies don't automatically = coming of age movies, IMO.

This, upon being too lazy, disencouraged me to participate. :P Maybe my memory is too broken, but Blue Velvet or Night of the Hunter wouldn't come first to my mind when thinking of "Coming of Age films", and neither does Akira. Actually most of the Ghibli films, too. (Not saying it's wrong or they don't qualify, but ..)

I can see that, for example, simple comedies featuring teenagers don't have to deal with CoA themes; when the list is done, I'd appreciate someone sorting out the movies that are "only teenage movies". I just wouldn't remember well enough.
