10. Umi ga Kikoeru
(dir. Tomomi Mochizuki)
9. The Nightmare Before Christmas (dir. Henry Selick)
8. Jurassic Park (dir. Steven Spielberg)
7. The Fugitive (dir. Andrew Davis)
6. Dazed and Confused (dir. Richard Linklater)

5. The Age of Innocence (dir. Martin Scorsese)
It's such a great story and it's told and acted so well. How I could not put it in here? This is probably the best Winona Ryder performance outside of Heathers. Also a great book.
4. Three Colors: Blue (dir. Krzysztof Kieslowski)
It's one of the most beautiful and enigmatic films I've ever seen (hey, just like his other one!)
3. The Piano (dir. Jane Campion)
It has one of the strangest relationships I've ever seen on film. Plus some incredible acting. It's just spellbinding.
2. Schindler's List (dir. Steven Spielberg)
This should probably be #1 but I just can't deal with this movie too much. It's such a profound and deeply moving experience that it's hard to watch. Shattering.
1. A Bronx Tale (dir. Robert De Niro)
This is just one of those personal favorites that baffles some people. How could I rank this over Schindler's List (the great film of our times) because I CAN!
