I'm probably the only person who actually prefers black and white to color. It has something to do with bringing the storyline to the forefront.

But let me add a movie I haven"t seen mentioned yet:

"To Kill a Mockingbird"

But my personal favorite is "La Dolce Vita"

"IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE" because it has such human warmth, humour, romance ... yet it isn't afraid of going down the dark path for a while too. It elevates you without pretending there isn't sadness and heartache out there too ... just that people can pull together and heal more than they can give pain. Hope and hopelessness, but finally Hope.

And it's one of those movies you grow up watching and you think 'how bogus movies were back then" ... and then one day you see it again and it hits you: "My God ... that was a deep, beautiful movie. And it's a window into another time, and another time's spirit ... and yet it's timeless."

And ... yeah ... when and why did they stop making movies like that?

When did it become so "uncool" to make a movie full of innocence and humanity and hope?

on a serious note... I cast my vote for Bergman's "The Seventh Seal"

still remains one of the greatest influences on me as a writer and aspiring filmmaker...

Have to say though, this movie has probably the coolest movie posters of all time.

Well, that's what Lang was really going for.

He didn't.

Do you have a follow-up question?
