I voted GF II - the way he wove two stories together in such a seamless cohesive manner was brilliant...not ground breaking maybe but compelling. At no time was I waiting for one segment to end so I could get back to the other. DeNiro and Pacino at their best.
Hey, nice marmot!

I'm interested in One from the Heart because like many great directors, their failures are often equally as interesting as their successes.  I'm also interested in his earlier work as well.

I bought the DVD to that ages ago but have yet to check it out. I'm terrified I might hate it.

Godfather II although honourable mentions for The Conversation and Apocalypse Now. Also Rumblefish because the drinking game is pretty fun.

I love apocalypse now but the outsiders was the first movie I saw where I had a real visceral reaction.
Strikeouts are boring - besides that, they're fascist.  Throw some ground balls.  More democratic.

I voted for The Rainmaker simply because it's one I watch over and over when ever it is on.  It hardly his best movie, Probably not even top 5, but I do like it like it quite a bit.  Nice problem to have when your fave flick is only is his sixth best...

I really like those Godfather films, but I can never get tired of Apocalyspe Now. It's that bizarre mixture between real life combat situations and the feeling that the story is moving into a fantasy-laid nightmarish finale. It gets me everytime.

The Conversation, at least until I rewatch The Godfather I & II and finally check out Apocalypse Now.

You should really lay off the animation and watch more films with credited cinematographers.
