I’m 37, I live in Oakland, and I watch all kinds of movies almost every day. I especially like cult, foreign, and classic films, with an additional special interest in films directed and/or written by women. My current top ten list, in no particular order:

True Stories by David Byrne
Branded to Kill by Seijun Suzuki
Deep Red by Dario Argento
Cleo from 5 to 7 by Agnes Varda
F is for Fake by Orson Welles
X: The Unheard Music by W.T. Morgan
Taxi Driver by Martin Scorsese
Zero Effect by Jake Kasdan
Mystery Train by Jim Jarmusch
Repulsion by Roman Polanski


I’m 40 and I live in Oakland and I’m watching a lot fewer movies these days since all the video stores closed and weirdo films got harder to find. I watch a lot of old movies and a lot of cult movies and anything with Edmund O’Brien in it. Auteur theory is the bunk. My current top 10 list, in no particular order:

Casablanca by Michael Curtiz
The Court Jester by Melvin Frank and Norman Panama
DOA by Rudolph Maté
The Maltese Falcon by John Huston
Shall We Dance? by Masayuki Suo
Phantom of the Paradise by Brian de Palma
Little Shop of Horrors by Frank Oz
Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! by Russ Meyer
Possession by Andrzej Zulawski
Mughal-e-Azam by K. Asif

I am 24 and I live in Chicago. I don’t watch movies all that often, and when I do they’re usually fairly mainstream. I’m not sure if this is because of some kind of inverted snobbery or if I’m just really lazy. Anyway, when I do watch movies, I like talking about them. My current top 10 list, in no particular order:

Punch-Drunk Love by Paul Thomas Anderson
Requiem for a Dream by Darren Aaronofsky
Taxi Driver by Martin Scorsese
Chinatown by Roman Polanski
Brazil by Terry Gilliam
Rear Window by Alfred Hitchcock
City of God by Fernando Meirelles and Kátia Lund
Dr. Strangelove by Stanley Kubrick
The Big Lebowski by The Coen Brothers
The Third Man by Carol Reed
