For a long time it was The Red Shoes.  Then it was Black Narcissus.  Now, I'm going to have to go with A Canterbury Tale.  So many of them are perfect.

I haven't done my homework it seems.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

You left out The 49th Parallel, One Of Our Aircraft Is Missing and The Spy In Black. . .

Not that anyone would likely vote for them.

Iíve lied to men who wear belts. Iíve lied to men who wear suspenders. But Iíd never be so stupid as to lie to a man who wears both a belt and suspenders.

For me, THE LIFE AND DEATH OF COLONEL BLIMP, A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH, and THE RED SHOES are equally good, with BLACK NARCISSUS a very slight notch below.

Would be nice to see The Boy Who Turned Yellow in print.

A Canterbury Tale as favourite, but it's a hotly contested area. Have never seen Black Narcissus  :-[

I'm shocked you haven't heard of most of them. I, like so many of us, just never got around to watching them. I've seen like a quarter of 49th Parallel, but otherwise have only seen Michael Powell without Emeric.
You're just jealous! Nobody loves you because you're tiny and made of meat!
