I would love to know who else voted for The Parallax View, I thought I might be the only one. ;D Something gorgeously nasty and slimy about this and Klute that I like in my films.

All the President's Men

Really should see Sophie's Choice

Surprised at how many votes for The Parallax View, did not think many had heard of it let alone seen it, I should know better with this group of people.
