Reasons why these films are in my top 5. Caution: may contain spoilers.
#1, Amélie. Still the most beautiful film I've ever seen, both in terms of visuals and story. Fun, playful, innocent. It's a visual representation of what being in love is. Scene of when Amélie turns to water is exactly what that situation feels like. Perfect and controlled use of CGI.
#2, The Social Network. I've watched this maybe four times now, and each time it gets better. The dialogue is fast and great, it's filmed well with a handful of really great shots, and the soundtrack helps the whole film keep it's pace up.
The only downside is the boat race scene :(
#3, The Big Lebowski.…
