All of this film talk makes me want to watch 8 1/2 again. Maybe if the Habs game goes poorly enough I will put it on.

I made use of this site years ago that polled a bunch of writers and directors about their top 10 movies. There were hundreds of people polled, so there was quite the variety. Most of the movies selected were older, and I found some of them unenjoyable. One of those was Battleship Potemkin (may have misspelled it). Some of the choices were from unexpected sources, and ended up being better than I figured. One of those was The Searchers by Ford, and another was City Lights by Chaplin. One random one by someone's whose name I can't recall was called Letter from an Unknown Woman. I highly recommend it.
