Well, I started thinking about which movies have influenced me personally the most. I started with the intention of creating a top-five list, but couldn't limit me to five, so I added another seven as honorable mentions .

Here is my list (no ranking implied):

  • Amélie  or really Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain (2001)
    • Feel good movie, with weird characters and numerous plots, without malice.
  • Nikita (1990)
    • I identify with the main person on a personal plane
  • Trainspotting (1996)
    • I so well recognize the environment and mindsets of the cast
  • Breakfast Club (1985)
    • Feel good movie, where I identify with the Bender and Alison, on an emotional plane
  • Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011)
    • A movie about outwitting your opponents by thinking and getting revenge on eveyone

And here are my Special Mentions:

  • Ferris Buehlers Day Off (1986)
    • Typical Teen movie, on how cool you wish you were as a teenager
  • Grosse Point Blank (1997)
    • An absurd movie, where repressed feelings are at the forefront
  • My Cousin Vinny (1992)
    • Wonderful comedy, about bluffing your way forward and outwitting your competition against all odd.
  • Taxi Driver (1976)
    • One of the most emotional movies I know, where it is easy to understand Travis way to madness
  • Cabaret (1972)
    • Wonderful musical movie, with a sad message and back-drop, that makes you think "what-if"
  • Sleepers (1996)
    • Long-term revenge, without regrets and over class-boundaries, which I know a lot about
  • Hair (1979)
    • An upbeat musical, with a somber ending, that forces you to think

I have seen a lot more movies (some very good, some OK, and a lot of them very bad), but these are the most influential movies that have touched me the most on a personal plane.
