10. Hamlet
(dir. Kenneth Branagh)
9. Kingpin (dir. Bobby Farrelly and Peter Farrelly)
8. The Hunchback of Notre Dame (dir. Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise)
7. Everyone Says I Love You (dir. Woody Allen)
6. Bottle Rocket (dir. Wes Anderson)

5. Breaking The Waves
(dir. Lars von Trier)
One of the most incredible performances I've ever seen thanks to Emily Watson. The story is fascinating and maddening at once. The payoff though is of cosmic proportions.
4. Sling Blade (dir. Billy Bob Thornton)
I believe this to be one of the most singular films I've ever seen. It focuses so much on this one character that we know why he does what he does.
3. Trainspotting (dir. Danny Boyle)
Has drug addiction ever been as fun or as harrowing in one simple punch? I don't think so.
2. Swingers (dir. Doug Liman)
This is one of my favorite movies because it's just about some guys who are living their lives. Of course, those lives are incredibly entertaining and always ring true.
1. Fargo (dir. Joel Coen)
It's more than a crime film. It's a film about deception, good heartedness and other weighty things. But above all, it's just ridiculously entertaining.
