Tears of the Black Tiger. Loved the use of color and the surrealism of making an American Western in 20th Century Thailand.

Definitely "Natural Born Killers" and one of my all time favorites "Lolita" (the remake with Jeremy Irons and Dominique Swain). I own it on VHS and Dvd in 3 languages!

I forgot to mention this one. Apart from the movie, I really loved the soundtrack, done by Mark Knopfler.

No... they were unusual though...Lars was just my kind of film-quirky but with poignant moments. Or maybe it was just Ryan Gosling that was so mesmerizing

I would add "Lars and the real Girl" to my list, a wonderfully warm , funny but mostly poignant little gem of a film about loneliness and community.
