Idiosyncratic Gloss and  Adoration

A Listmania! list by Joanna Davis "Joanna" (Louisville KY)
The list author says: "Prescribed entertainment, thought and inspiration for the idiosyncratic thinker."
The Royal Tenenbaums (The Criterion Collection)
1.  The Royal Tenenbaums (The Criterion Collection) DVD ~ Owen Wilson
The list author says:
  "This comedy, yet another created by the brilliant Wes Anderson is rich in dialogue, comedy and substance.  Its rare that these two appetites are satisfied at once when being entertained. I recommend this to those who are ready to break out of the bland box of cereal hollywood tends to always serve."
$13.52   Used & New from: $1.86
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (921 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Amelie
2.  Amelie DVD ~ Audrey Tautou
The list author says:
  "This movie, created by Jean Jeunet Pierre, serves a dark comedy, but its charming and whimsical characters and story will seduce you into a blissful lighthearted state. I recommend this movie to anyone who is into the inspirational, ethereal experience."

The Cure - Greatest Hits
3.  The Cure - Greatest Hits DVD ~ Robert Smith

4.  The Secret of Life: Commonsense Advice for the Uncommon Woman by Elizabeth Wurtzel
The list author says:
  "Elizaabeth Wurtzel is now and probably will forever be my favorite female super hero.  She is real, and she is so penetrating that she breathes the joy of life right into you by reminding you how to use pain and sorrow to fill you up with power."

Rushmore
6.  Rushmore DVD ~ Jason Schwartzman
The list author says:
  "This movie is the second directed by Sir Wes Anderson, and stars Jason Schwartzman as Max Fischer and Bill Murray as Herman Blume. If that isn't enough to make you want to see this movie, then you aren't worthy enough to see this movie."

Tragic Kingdom: The Magical Art of Camille Rose Garcia
7.  Tragic Kingdom: The Magical Art of Camille Rose Garcia by Camille Rose Garcia
The list author says:
  "Camille Rose Garcia is my most recent muse.  Her art is coined as pop surrealism, and its beautifully executed, however, her paintings are much richer than eye candy if you look close enough."

Donnie Darko (Widescreen Edition)
9.  Donnie Darko (Widescreen Edition) DVD ~ Jake Gyllenhaal
The list author says:
  "This movie, in my opinion was the science fiction version of "American Beauty".  There are layers and layers of richness in this film, you won't be able to taste it all in one viewing."
Used & New from: $0.01

A Man Without a Country
10.  A Man Without a Country by Kurt Vonnegut
The list author says:
  "In my opinion, this book is underrated in the Vonnegut library.  Its a small book, however, if you ever said things as eloquently as Vonnegut once did, you don't need a lot of pages."
$11.40   Used & New from: $0.24
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (262 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Slaughterhouse-Five: A Novel (Modern Library 100 Best Novels)
11.  Slaughterhouse-Five: A Novel (Modern Library 100 Best Novels) by Kurt Vonnegut
The list author says:
  "In this brilliant novel, Vonnegut explores the absurdities and atrocities of war through the eyes of Billy Pilgrim, time travel, and glimpses into the non-propagated fragments of war.

Another favorite book."
