    Dead Man by Jim Jarmusch. Beautifully shot in black and white by Robby Muller, brilliant score by Neil Young and an unbelievable cast; Johnny Depp, Robert Mitchum in his last role, Gabriel Byrne, John Hurt, Billy Bob Thornton, Crispin Glover, Alfred Molina, Gary Farmer and a crazy cameo by Iggy Pop. Film theorist Jonathan Rosenbaum wrote an entire book on this film, saying it was a genre of it's own, "The Acid Western." It was a head trip for sure.

    FYI, Jarmusch has a brand new film out, a vampire film of all things titled Only Lovers Left Alive. Tilda Swinton and Mike Hiddleston, the villain in The Avengers, are co-leads. Haven't seen it, but it sounds like an intellectual stoner fest.

    Not sure I could nail down a favorite, but when I was young and Star Wars first came out, that was so beyond anything else that I had seen that it would have to make my list. Similarly, when I first saw the Matrix, I was kind of blown away.

    I have so many films I consider favorites for different reasons. Though if I have to pick one I will just go with this one.

    The first Matrix movie was great. The sequels kind of ruined it of course but at the time it was the start of a kind of new era of possibility for scifi films. Then of course they pushed the tech and christ metaphor a little too far and gave us those other crappy films.

    I havent seen it in years. Wonder if it holds up.

    As i'm sure you've noticed(DKR threads) once i've made up my mind that an actor makes a movie unwatchable that's it "Game over man"

    Yeah, not trying to change your mind if thats your reason. I dont find too many actors that can ruin a movie for me. I do have this weird thing with Daniel Craig though where I can not finish a movie he is in. I dont even dislike the guy just havent finished a single movie he has done.

    I like Keanu for what he is. Heck I even like Bale, I just love Batman and wish we got a Batman movie instead of whatever DKR was.
