who voted they don't like any of them?  time for reëducation kamp!

Stranger Than Paradise, Ghost Dog, and Dead Man are filled with awesomeness for different moods.  I need to revisit Broken Flowers, which is pretty fab, though I remember having a slight hang-up on Bill Murphy (his Anderson-era schtick just doesn't do it for me).  The C&C segment "Champagne" is beautiful. 
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.

Did everyone read Scott Tobias' piece on Dead Man, for The A.V. Club's New Cult Canon feature? It's pretty good.

not bad.  the second clip with the young score reminded me how much the film owes to that, and the fact the film should be experienced in a theatre.    this could be the best movie score ever.  does make me want to queue [oops] it up.

Dead Man really stands out for me as being the best. Ghost Dog and Broken Flowers are right behind it.

Dead Man is great but I'm going Down by Law.
