    Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998)

    Ardan Türzünsoy's picks: 01. Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998)

    Reason: "it's the most fun I ever had watching a film. It has perfect photography, perfect editing (never, ever slowing down or going so fast that you miss the story) looks extremely slick, has perhaps the best and most quotable dialogue I heard in a comedy, Guy Ritchie used music as well as Tarantino, perhaps even better, almost like a character in the film. And although the plot is extremely intricate, you have no trouble following it. At least I didn't."

    Into the Wild (2007)

    Itacc's picks: 01. Into the Wild (2007)

    Brazil (1985)

    otter68's picks: 01. Brazil (1985)

    Reason: "It's an amazing fantasy story with incredible visuals and great performances, especially Robert Dinero's cameo as the blackmarket fugitive heating repairman. It's the story of a everyman who is happy in his anonymity who finds himself chasing the girl of his dreams, literally, through the world of an oppressive government that controls everything and tries to control everyone. It holds up well after 30 years and stands the test of time.
