I'm not a big fan of any other Soderberg's either.

Not a single one? Well, as I recall, you haven't seen Ocean's Eleven. The Limey, Out of Sight, Schizopolis, Traffic, Erin Brockovich - all no good?

Of those, I haven't seen Schizopolis.  As for the rest: Out Of Sight was the only one I liked.  I suspect it's more Elmore Leonard than Soderberg.

21. Miss Julie

I didn't realize there was a film version of this - I saw a fantastic staged version in London about 10 years ago. Just looked on Netflix and there are two films, 1951, 1999 - which is the one you're referring to, Sean?

The '51 film, directed by Al Sjöberg.  Watched it and read the play in college.  I think Criterion just released it on DVD.

I've seen woefully few (and they're heavilly weighted to the recent):

1. Elephant
2. Apocalypse Now
3. Dancer In the Dark
4. Pulp Fiction
5. Paris, Texas
6. Taxi Driver
7. If....
8. The Wind That Shakes the Barley
9. The Pianist
10. L'enfant
11. The Knack... and How to Get It
12. The Mission
13. Barton Fink

Shouldn't have gotten it:
2. Fahrenheit 9/11
1. 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days

I rented the 1999 one by mistake. Bad mistake. It was directed by Mike Figgis and, in keeping with the great indie film tradition, the only thing he brought to the production was a graphic rape sequence.
