    That's tough off the cuff...

    But here's only three I really love and have seen more than 3 times:
    Bicycle Thieves (Vittorio De Sica, Italy, 1949)
    Mr. Hulot's Holiday (Jacques Tati, France 1953)
    Night on Earth (Jim Jarmush, USA, 1991)

    Anyway: I love wacky old comedies (MONTY PYTHON!, Chaplin, Marx bros etc) and film noir (Humprey Bogart, Detour(1945), Orson Welles' Touch of Evil (1958) etc) etc).

    I rarely watch old movies, but usually if I watch a movie a 2nd time, it's bound to be an older one (or European).

    One never changes...

    Chinatown has been my favorite since it first came out.

    The others will vary, depending on mood or what I've watched recently. This morning, I'll say

    Wow--only three? ;^)

    Let's see...

    1. The Exorcist -- A lot of kids these days laugh at it, but after more than thirty years, it still curdles my blood. Superbly written, directed, and acted.

    2. Anatomy Of A Murder -- An Otto Preminger masterpiece. Subject matter years ahead of its time. And starring the late, great Jimmy Stewart, of course.

    3. Full Metal Jacket -- Stanley Kubrick's last masterpiece. (Eyes Wide Shut was not a masterpiece, I regret to say.) "Private Pyle, what is that in your footlocker?! A jelly doughnut?!" R. Lee Ermey, as USMC Master Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, gives one of the most memorable film performances of all time, in my opinion.

    Geez, there are so many other great movies. These three are just the first ones that came to mind.

    Good Stuff

    1. Cool Hand Luke (w/ Paul Newman) is my favorite all time movie. I can really identify with Luke.

    2. Pulp Fiction. I don't identify with anyone in this movie...but there are just too many classic one liners here.

    3. Smokie & The Bandit. Just a classic for me.
