I really like the Hannibal trilogy (Red Dragon, The Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal)
Other favorites are: La Haine Pi Mulholland Dr. This is England Control Elephant The Pianist Le Scaphandre et le Papillon The Life of David Gale City Of God High Fidelity The Negotiator American History X Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind Felon The Simpsons Movie [...]
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind was a movie which suprised me to no end. I saw it in the list of best Sci-Fi (!) movies at the Internet Movie Database and thought "huh? What's that?" Bought it. Watched it. Loved it.
Here are some others I love:
Amélie Blade Runner Children Of Men Ronin Ghost In The Shell (I + II) Princess Mononoke The Princess Bride Pan's Labyrinth Lord Of The Rings trilogy King Kong (old & new version) Syriana Solaris (the new version) Mememto Serenity Shrek Wallace & Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit The Prestige Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind Gattaca Dogville Bulworth Twelve Monkeys Brazil Persepolis Juno Koyaanisqatsi Metropolis V For Vendetta Fight Club Enemy Of The State Galaxy Quest Matrix Inside Man
almost everything by directors Tim Burton and Christopher Nolan
and many more actually...

my god, you guys love the HB, but you also have almost the same favorite movies as me! (or than me, i don't know )
mine are: Old Boy Donnie Darko Ghost In The Shell (I+II, and all Oshii's movies) C.R.A.Z.Y. The Silence Of The Lambs Forrest Gump Exiled (and many other johnnie to's movies) Blade Runner The Green Mile Infernal Affairs
My favorite actor is Christian Bale. I think he is so good! I like him most in these movies:
American Psycho Harsh Times Rescue Dawn The Dark Night
My other favories are: There Will Be Blood No Country For Old Men Transformers (can't wait to see the new one!) Tropic Thunder Edmond American Gangster Deja Vu Blood Diamond King Kong Donnie Darko The Deerhunter Forrest Gump Wall Street JFK Natural Born Killers Silence of the Lambs Hannibal Raging Bull Goodfellas Casino Men in Black We Were Soldiers Rules of Engagement
I adore good movies (sometimes also not so good ones ;D) I am not able to put them into a order because I think you can't really compare the different genres to each other....
The pianist Wind Chill The constant gardener Little children Perfume: the story of a murderer Papa ante portas (by Loriot) Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis Le placard The birds Dead man walking Motel American Beauty Meet the parents Honeymoon in vegas ;D Marrakesch Si le vent soulève les sables - one of the saddest movies I've ever seen... Life is beautiful The strangers The man from the embassy and there are much more...
I am also looking forward for "The road" based on the novel by Cormac McCarthy, which is one of my favorite books. And I still haven't seen No country for old men because I want to read the book first.

Some great lists above, I'd probably put most of those I've seen in my list. However my favourite films are those by the late Polish director Krzysztof Kieslowski, most notably The Three Colours Trilogy and The Double Life of Veronique.
Strangely I was looking at random Howling Bells vids on youtube and came across this:
At the moment, this is my favourite film by my favourite director.
Park Chan Wook's one of my all time heroes, and I love all his films. Thirst is his most recent, and I think it's completely stunning. It's visually beautiful throughout, the offbeat storyline centered round the romance between Sang-Hyung, a Catholic priest who's coming to terms with the fact he's become vampire; and Tae-Ju, a local girl who dreams of freedom from her ill husband and overly protective family; had me glued to the screen start to finish. Thoroughly intriguing, sad at times, and hilarious at others. I love my Korean films, I find them both emotionally deep and complex but easy to connect with, all this moreso perhaps than some counterpart western films, and think Korean is a fantastic sounding language for film (wish I understood it tbh). Would also highly recommend other Park Chan Wook films like The Vengeance Trilogy & JSA, also other Korean films The Chaser and 3 Iron are stunning. Also watched I Saw The Devil recently - liked it but it's very very dark...
