what is YOUR favorite film?

inspired by Jack Bower's most recent list, I decided to do an interactive list where you just comment your favorite movie and I add it to the list. if more than one person has the same film, I just add the name to the notes. my favorite film is Drive, I'm honestly not sure why, but it kind of just stuck.


Edit #1: The list is now alphabetized. 
Edit #2: Over 200 people have now contributed to this list. To everyone that did, thank you!
