Five Star Movie List

Robert J. Clancy
The list author says: "I recently compiled a list of favorite, five-star movies on my Netflix account. I thought I'd share it with others. I have viewed all these movies at least twice and in most cases 3,4,5 or more times. Each one has the power to keep on drawing you back."
The Duellists
The Duellists
"Early Ridley Scott -- great cinematography. Based upon a Joseph Conrad short story. Excellent."
Barton Fink
Barton Fink
"John Turturro again in another Coen brothers classic.  Michael Lerner is mesmerizing as the Studio Head -- "I want rasslin' movies -- big men in tights rasslin' each other."  John Mahoney is brilliant as Bill Faulkner.  And quintessential John Goodman."
Unforgiven (Snap Case)
Unforgiven (Snap Case)
"Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman and Gene Hackman in a Western morality play.  Confirms the banality of evil."
The Game
The Game
"Michael Douglas and Sean Penn in this wonderful rollercoaster ride of danger and suspense.  And just when you've thought that you've figured it out...pow.  Got ya."
Pan's Labyrinth (Limited Deluxe Edition)
Pan's Labyrinth (Limited Deluxe Edition)
"Guillermo del Toro's incredible world of fantasy and brutality. Impeccable art direction -- Guillermo sketched his fantasies scene by scene in his diary.  A classic."
In the Realms of the Unreal: The Mystery of Henry Darger
In the Realms of the Unreal: The Mystery of Henry Darger
"Documentary about reclusive artist and Chicago janitor Henry Darger.  An incredible story about finding art in life -- no matter how difficult your life becomes."
Run Lola Run
Run Lola Run
"Rashomon examined the nature of truth/reality in ancient Japan. Run Lola Run does the same in modern day German.  An interesting reflection on time and coincidence."
Ed Wood (Special Edition)
Ed Wood (Special Edition)
"Johnny Depp as the world's worst director.  Martin Landau gives an award winning performance as Bela Ligosi.  Also with Steve Murray and Tor Johannsen. Hilarious. "Pull da string...pull da string."  Cut, Perfect!"
Office Space - Special Edition with Flair (Widescreen Edition)
Office Space - Special Edition with Flair (Widescreen Edition)
"I've probably seen this movie more times than any other. A comedy classic.  Ranks up there with This Is Spinal Tap and It's A Mad, Mad, Mad World."
Paths of Glory
Paths of Glory
"Early Kubrick and a powerful anti-war film.  Reminiscent of All Quiet On The Western Front but more hard hitting.  Great performances by Kirk Douglas and Ralph Meeker."
Bad Day at Black Rock
Bad Day at Black Rock
"Spencer Tracy as the one-armed stranger who takes on a creepy southwestern town, along with Robert Ryan, Ernst Borgnine and Lee Marvin.  A modern day High Noon.  A true classic."
Ronin
Ronin
"Exciting thriller with Robert De Niro, Jean Reno and Natasha McElhone.  Directed by John Frankenheimer and one of his best. Maybe the most exciting car chase scene ever filmed."
This is Spinal Tap (Special Edition)
This is Spinal Tap (Special Edition)
"The mockumentary that launched all the other mockumentaries. Brilliant storyline, unforgettable characters.  Smell the glove."
Memento [Blu-ray]
Memento [Blu-ray]
"Who is Lenny Shelby?  This movie breaks down the 4th wall -- the wall between the audience and the actors.  In Mememto, we become Lenny as we learn what Lenny learns, when he learns it. Chris Nolan home run."
The Reader
The Reader
"Morality story about love, loss, and the ramifications of not making choices.  Set in Post WWII Germany.  No happy Hollywood endings here."
Slumdog Millionaire
Slumdog Millionaire
"Who we are is what we've experienced.  Life of a Cha-boy (tea server) who transforms a life of hardship into fame and fortune. "Who wants to be a mill-on-air?""
RocknRolla (Single-Disc Edition)
RocknRolla (Single-Disc Edition)
"Another Guy Ritchie action flick but with all the wrinkles ironed out.  He's got this style down to a science.  If you watch this along with Run Lola Run, better have a defibrillator handy."
