Austin, in a comment, asks for a list of my favorite movies.
Here are some movies I have enjoyed greatly. Some are great works of art. Others just produced great satisfaction and still resonate with me. Some of them I have seen many times. Others I have seen only once because they were simply too powerful and painful to watch again. In no particular order:
High Noon, The Truman Show, It’s a Wonderful Life, A Night at the Opera, The Lives of Others, Slumdog Millionaire, The Sixth Sense, Life is Beautiful, Truly, Madly, Deeply, Love Actually, Bridge on the River Kwai. The Twelve Chairs
