Yes, one of my faves of all time too, and of course Crispin Glover is in it, and well, that just makes it all the better. Anything Crispin Glover does is A-OK in my book, even when he's in shitty big budget movies like Charlies Angels, I'll still watch just for Crispin.
Maybe there could be a Crispin Glover thread. He has done some good roles and he has done some great characters as in River's Edge. He pissed off Letterman in a 1987 interview to promote the movie River's Edge a very depressing movie about a true story.
I didn't want to dwell on the guy by posting the YouTube of the incident. He did go back on the show 3 yrs. later but that 1987 interview made the Top 10 worst guests.
I saw it when it happened and he was an asshole.
He was (allegedly) appearing in character - as Ruben from the (as then) in development movie 'Rubin and Ed' - but I think that went over Letterman's head.
I remember Glover being on 'The Last Resort with Jonathan Ross' (which was really a UK facsimile of the Letterman show) around that time, with some of his art curios - even when not in character he was a weird guy :D
Edit: He went back on Letterman a few weeks after the 'kicking' show with some of his artwork too - its on YouTube, but it really isn't as interesting as I remember
I just looked at mine from a year or so ago and boy... was I drunk? I mean, I've never been drunk, but that list... Hm. Maybe I was trolling for attention? Anyhow, here's a mostly better list (in no real order):
There Will Be Blood
Requiem For A Dream
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
But that'll change eventually... I could do TV series too! Dare I start THAT thread up? I might...
Yep, and enjoyed it. Though I thought for a time yelling "The Brown Bunny" would clear out a crowded movie theater quicker than yelling "fire." Like Gallo, he seems bug-shit crazy and I always find that endearing.
here are some of my favorites, but I have a hundred more.
The Blossoming of Maximo Oliveros
Schultze Gets the Blues
Wild at Heart
A Beautiful Mind
It's all Gone Pete Tong
The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada
Zorba the Greek
et La Strada
I have tried for months to figure this out... Like many, my list of fave movies would go way beyond 10, so here's my current favorite 10, ahhhh, this was hard, but in no particular order...
Harold and Maude (maybe tied with ed wood for #1 of all time for me)
Heathers (Dear diary, my teenage angst has a body count) Maybe best line ever!
Clockwork Orange (still not sure why my parents let me see that at such a young age)
What's Eating Gilbert Grape
Shaun of the Dead
The Modern Classics:Yahoo released a new list of the 100 movies you have to see before you die. The list only consists of movies made between 1990-2009. Lots of favorites on there and they offer a printable checklist! Now I'm off to start checking off all the ones I've seen!
Thanks guys, already feel like a part of the big happy Buk-Family. About the top flicks:

Jarmusch:Everything, fav. Dead Man
Tarkovski: Everything, Zerkalo fav.
Kubrick: Everything, all fav.
Bergman: Everything, Det sjunde inseglet fav.
Allen: Everything, Annie Hall fav.
Von Trier: Everything, Antichrist fav.
Lynch: Everything, Lost Highway fav.
Polanski: Everything, Pianist fav.
Haneke: Everythin, fav. Der siebente Kontinent
There are just too many... and I'm not even mentioning Finnish cinema (btw. check out Klaus HÃ¤rä's Letters to Father Jaakob)
I also gotta mention Ki-Duk Kim's Bom yeoreum gaeul gyeoul geurigo bom, which was quite important to me as well as Shawshank Redemption since 'get busy livin or get busy dyin', 'that's God damn right'.
Hard choice but here's some of my favourites:
2001: A Space Odyssey
Eight and a Half
Shaun of The Dead
Dawn Of The Dead
The Good The Bad And The Ugly
2001: A Space Odyssey - could have easily listed this one in my top ten but didn't (listing a favorite top ten is an exercise in error anyhow). The effects still look amazing to this day 40+ years since release.
