    One single movie? Holy crap, that's a tough one.

    Without trying to sound too gay, it just might be The Wizard of Oz.
    Not for the "usual" reasons, but for this one line of dialogue:

    "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain."

    It taught me at a very young age that there's almost always a man behind the curtain, and I've spent the better part of my life trying to expose him, wherever that curtain might be found.

    Either The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, or The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe.

    The original Dune.
    I have seen Latter Days and it rates as my second favorite gay movie. The first would be Pit Stop. A must see in my opinion portraying the difficulties a gay man living in the heart land faces looking for a companion.

    The Shawshank Redemption. All kinds of great quotes:

    "Get busy living or get busy dying", and, whenever i have lost a friend to moving away for a better job, i think of the movie again:

    "I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up does rejoice. Still, the place you live in is that much more drab and empty that they're gone. I guess I just miss my friend."

    I have a few favorites that I would happily watch over and over again.
    Sampson and Delilah (2009)
    Ten canoes
    Kandahar
    Whatever happened to Baby Jane?

    Only one of my top four is a Hollywood movie, for some reason Hollywood productions rarely speak to me.

    I loved "Platoon" and "Heaven Can Wait" but no movie left me literally drained afterwards than "The Passion of the Christ" --- it was incredibly powerful.

    Favorite movie of 2016..."Me Before You". If you don't cry at least once during that movie you have no heart.

    mybud saidGods and Monsters....


    Yes, I loved that movie. Ian McKellen and Brendan Fraser were really good, and Lynn Redgrave was fantastic! I can't pick just one, but Gods and Monsters was definitely one of my favorites.

    Kinda a cliche but Selena was an amazing movie....mainly because Jennifer Lopez really captured every aspect of her personality and she played the shit out of that role. I'm surprised she didn't get more awards for it...
