I usually don't name names, but, if you insist... A Face in the Crowd.

Of course On the Waterfront. Actually this was one of the hardest polls so far

I had to go with A Tree Grows in Brooklyn because that's the only one I've seen.  I'm ashamed.

9. On the Waterfront[/b]

...odd. Would you care to elaborate?
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

I liked the performances, but otherwise I just wasn't very impressed.  And the score is really oppressive.

I probably underrated it, it was 7 years ago when I saw it and reviewed it.
