Okay, I lied…. this isn't a "10 Best" list. It's a "10 Favorite" list.
I always feel that as soon as you introduce the word "best," everyone feels compelled to pick movies with important themes, weighty subjects and serious performances.
Which isn't to say I don't think these films are top of the line: Everyone of them stuck with me in one way or another. It's just by way of explaining why some of the films that seem to be on everyone else's lists aren't here.
Oh, and they're not listed in order of preference or importance. I love them all.
