Post Anti-discussion: 99 films and a bitch iz me

This is a thread that ruins and is against everything we believe in. Totally lacks in substance and good taste. It is impulsive, and totally redundant. My list of 99 favourite films, because when I was making this list one of the 100 I was considering got misplaced and I couldn't tell you what it is. I dare you to create film discussion from this tripe. DARE YOU.

99. City Girl (F.W. Murnau)
Image
a very recent watch, enjoy the fields of grain. the empty and frightening interiors.

98. The Man with a Movie Camera (Dziga Vertov)
Image
in the silence we find the violence of the industrial world, an ellipsis in loneliness that creates a community out of fear. if only Vertov could have known what his masterpiece had become the back-drop to.

97. The Best Years of Our Lives (William Wyler)
Image
people caught on an island, comfort bringing no comfort. a handsome man and a beautiful young girl wonder if things will ever be like the movies.

96. Safe in Hell (William A. Wellman)
Image
it must be difficult to be beautiful and possessed. i can admire a character who is not complicit with the film, who is in tension with her depiction, willing to sacrifice the body but live forever on the screen. could she have known?

95. Gun Crazy (Joseph H. Lewis)
Image
beautiful people get excited over smoking guns. hard to blame them, to be so recklessly in love, one would have to be so recklessly in love with danger.

94. Easy Rider (Dennis Hopper)
Image
a very sad film.

93. Rio Bravo (Howard Hawks)
Image
men go around being afraid to be men, then they are men, and we're happy and they sing a song.

92. Don't Look Now (Nicholas Roeg)
Image
you can never escape tragedy, never understood though why they would ever go to Venice. obvious connection with their daughters death and death generally. most nightmarish city in the world.

91. Bigger than Life (Nicholas Ray)
Image
authority frightens me because i am obedient.

Does not compute.

Rio Bravo is just the best. One of those movies I could watch anytime and just feel better about everything afterwards.

90. Taxi Driver (Martin Scorsese)
Image
when we see in others frightening exhibitions of hatred and loneliness, we fear it in ourselves.

89. Paris, Texas (Wim Wenders)
Image
the open road holds much promise, until you realize you're caught between two cold oceans and a canada hat and mexico shorts.

88. On Dangerous Ground (Nicholas Ray)
Image
our fury can destroy even the strongest beauty

87. Pierrot le fou (Jean-Luc Godard)
Image
living in the movies is not that much fun, more fun then reality, but reserved for the beautiful and interesting.

86. Chungking Express (Wong Kar-Wai)
Image
a chance at happiness and love

85. The 39 Steps (Alfred Hitchcock)
Image
the magic of cinema where death hangs only beyond the edges of the screen, felt but unseen

I didn't really like it much either (re: Taxi Driver). It could have been me being an idiot 2 years ago, but I mostly suspect it just isn't for me.

But Pierrot le Fou, Chungking Express, and especially Paris, Texas :up:

Taxi Driver is superb. It, Cries and Whispers and Leaving Las Vegas are the three films I have to ask myself if I'm in a good place emotionally before viewing.
