thank you for mentioning the pianist in the paragraph. I remember seeing that in theatres and thinking it was a great film and I went and bought it on DVD when it came out...but have still never watched the DVD. Life is Beautiful is probably the last movie i cried watching.

If i had to pick something that wasn't mentioned...I would say Garden State

 REQUIEM FOR A DREAM SUCKED!!!  This was not a great movie.  Filmmaking is about storytelling and if you have to make a movie this messed up to make your story interesting then it is bad.  This film uses shock value as a gimmick to disguise it's poor writing.  Just as Quentin Tarantino uses violence to distract from his crappy storytelling skills.

Fried Green Tomatoes

Sleepers

Seven

About Schmidt

What Dreams May Come

Traffic

The Deer Hunter

I could go on and on. There are lots of movies I would classify as good, maybe great, but wouldn't watch again. These are just a few.

I agree Wallyrus, Requiem for a Dream sucked big time. But filmmaking is about more than just storytelling. It's also about imagery, shots, editing, tone, etc.

Requiem was awesome but just because you watched a movie that made your vagina hurt doesn't mean it was made for shock value and by the way it was a novel first.

And real life can be exactly what happened in Requiem so I don't know what you're talking about anyway.

I dunno, I never get enough of JC getting his ass beat.  Passion is off this list.


But yea, Requiem, The  Seventh Seal are great choices.  And I still watch SAW, but it's a once a year thing, rather than a repeated abusing.

I am NOT religious at all.  But I went to watch the Passion.  Why?  My ex-father in law PAID my ex-wife and I $200 dollars to go watch it!  I shit you not.  Yes, he is Chrisitan.  What did I think?  It was one of the the only real snuff films I have ever seen. 

It was one of the most violent pieces of film I have ever seen.  More so than any slasher horror movie ever made.  It is more violent than any Rob Zombie movie.  I have a strong stomach.  I even considered being a mortician(really).  But the Passion of the Christ made me ill.  It also made me cry.  Not because it is Christ, but because of the vile way humans can treat each other.  I won't every eatch that movie again even if someone paid me $1000 to watch it.  In fact, I wish I never did watch it.

I also agree about the Sixth Sense.  I tried to watch it again but once was enough.  Once the "twist" end was revealed the movie is actually kind of boring.  Unbreakable is M Nights best movie IMHO.  I can watch it again and it is still great.

I can still watch Bully because of all the female nudity lol.  But otherwise, good list lol. 

 

Oh, and I can obviously watch A Clockwork Orange plenty of times.

Interesting list, I've seen all the films but the anime and "The Road". I'm glad to hear "The Road" is faithfull to the book since I just started reading it and am planing on checking the film out on the weekend.

I would have added to the list

"cannibal Holocaust" - 'cause I'm an animal lover and that movie is brutal

"Nekromantik" - The ending of that movie to this very day makes me feel queezy when I think about it.

"salo" - That one really got under my skin like very few films have, I felt sad, dirty, disgusted, angry and it was on my mind for days after I saw it.
