Really enjoyed that one. Dinklage was great, but what made the movie was the other characters (non)reactions to him.

Also loved Greenaway's cinematography/color use in TCTTHW&HL. And I could watch Being John Malkovich another hundred times.

Others I didn't see mentioned:
Big Fish
Wings of Desire (the Nic Cage remake was awful)
End of the Game (billed as "an existential whodunit")
Harold & Maude

How to Get Ahead in Advertising.

Dennis Dimbleby Bagley is a brilliant young advertising executive who can't come up with a slogan to sell a revolutionary new pimple cream. His obsessive worrying affects not only his relationship with his wife, his friends and his boss, but also his own body - graphically demonstrated when he grows a large stress-related boil on his shoulder. But when the boil grows eyes and a mouth and starts talking, Bagley really begins to think he's lost his mind. But has he?

Yes. Richard Grant's second greatest role (the first of course, being the megalomaniac villain in Hudson Hawk).

"The Man Who Would Be King" with Sean Connery and Michale Caine.. It has some slow spots and takes a while to get to the meat of the story but many of those scenes are memorable and moving. The ending is tragic but still inspiring. They just couldn't make a movie like that today.
