After I posted my list I looked at what other people had suggested and found a lot of the same movies, especially: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Dark Knight, Fight Club, Almost Famous, and Moulin Rouge! I'm a little surprised and extremely delighted by the love for Moulin Rouge! out there on So what do you think? Do you have a top 14? If you are reading this please comment!
