    Sorry if this is an endlessly rehashed query but I'm trying to fill in the holes in my small library of movies. This might help me remember some I may have forgotten. I'll go first...


    Comedy: Waiting for Guffman

    Mystery/ Thriller: Witness for the Prosecution

    Horror: Rosemary's Baby

    Action: Spider Man (2)

    Fantasy: Wizard of Oz (sure I'm queer but also in terms of art direction, after eighty years, still nothing's come close) Second choice: Edward Scizzorhands

    Artistic: Girl with a Pearl Earring.

    Tear Jerker: To Sir with Love

    Romance: ??? I'm stuck. If I say Titanic I'm afraid I'll be stoned in the village square. See, I told you I need help...

    Drama: A Place in the Sun



    I know it takes a little thought. Thanks,

    Thanks guys, Great stuff here!



    GuiltyGear, I'll have to check out The Wolves of Kromer.

    ManMachine23, I forgot about Run Lola Run. So much so that I can't even remember what it's about except that I loved it.

    Timgoblue, I love Contact!

    Jarhead5536, Sophie's Choice is brilliant but damn hard to return to more than a few times.

    And Creature, I love me some Wilder too. Might he be best director ever?

    More,more !!!

    Yes I know it's tough but Streep's performance is THE acting tour de force of all of our lifetimes. The climactic scene at the train arrival in Auschwitz is so real as to be almost unwatchable, yet we watch...

    Dude, had to respond to your comment re: meryl, was a prev. forum about whether she's the best actress. you said exactly what I did, that it was excellent, but I could never watch the movie again...I cried like a baby at the end...and rightfully so...not just for her acting prowess, but for the knowledge that what the movie depicts actually happened. THAT is the devastating part.
