    What kills me is that with a quick go through I see about 21 films that are pretty much "schlock." I shouldn't be able to see 10% "schlock." I guess that one man's "schlock" is another mans art.

    Another Peter Weir gems. One of my last nominations, a small film with an even smaller academy award winning performance by Linda Hunt. She's unforgettable.

    Sad that there is so much schlock in the contest, while some truly amazing films go unnoticed. I too have Silkwood, The Accused, and Salvador on my list. While there is still time I will shill for...

    Here's a little known war film that depicts the horrors of war in the face of friendship. Gut wrenching. A very early Mel Gibson in this one.

    I will second Fitzcarraldo - visionary filmmaking.

    The documentary about the making of Fitzcarraldo, Burden of Dreams, is equally brilliant.

    Scorsese once described this film as being the most violent film he had ever made. The power of words is on full display here. A great film.

    I don't know if it has held up, but at the time I thought this movie was so funny. Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin just chew the scenery up.
