A Listmania! list by Anastasia (Staten Island, NY)
The list author says: "I like movies that fully use the medium - visually intense, moody, surreal, escapist. Or action films. Anyway, it's gotta put under a spell."
The Fall
1.  The Fall DVD ~ Lee Pace
The list author says:
  "Stunning imagery, amazing performance by a little girl who strikes up a friendship with an invalid man in a hospital. He tells her an epic story of love and vengeance, and we see it unfold through her eyes. Directed by Tarsem."
