Not from my favorite films ever, just the first five that came to mind:

5. The Last of the Mohicans — Everything on the cliff (except one atrocious, Miami Vice-like sound insert of a guy falling).

4. Il Postino — The sounds of the island.

3. The Fighting Sullivans — One last wave goodbye.

2. Red — Freeze frame.

1. The 400 Blows — Freeze frame.

I'll have to think about this but the first one that came to my mind was:

To Kill a Mockingbird, when Gregory Peck is leaving the courtroom
"Jean Louise, stand up, your father's passing."

more later...

These also aren't from my top 5 films, but they're some of my most favorite moments from some of my most favorite films. The semi themed nature of the list might as well be coincidental, cuz while I'm sure if I thought long and hard about it, I could have come up with 5, ten, 20 scenes I like as much, these are easily some of the ones that stick out in my mind most.


05 Fallen Angels "danceish".
04 Werckmeister Harmonies "dance".
03 Dancer in the Dark not really dance : (
02 Double Life of Veronique ''dAnce''.
01 Band of Outsiders dance.

Five more:
3b. Rebel Without a Cause Playing house.

If I put more effort into the whole thing, the scene where they're discussing Plato's mismatched socks might've ended up on it. Specifically, there's one tiny little offhanded exchange something like "Oh well I've done stuff like that, havent you?" and the reply that, for whatever reason, I really, really love.

I hate sense-making.  Over-rated, patriarchial, age of "enlightenment" crap!  Though it does remind me of Chappelle "spaghetti spaghetti".  Anyway, feelings is better than reason.  CINECASTing randian libertarians think they are so smart and logical, nothing gets me like those head-craving of baseball bat peoples!  Not that I am condoning violence against them, but whose to say there is anything wrong with violence - just more rhetoric to keep little peoples out of control.  None of that was a favorite movie part of a favorite movie, though.
But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.
