House of Games narrowly defeats Full Metal Jacket.
I'm like Cold Stone: you either like me, love me, or gotta have me.

Wow. I don't want to vote for any of these (Full Metal Jacket being the one Kubrick I haven't seen).

yikes...
-Le Chiffre: You changed your shirt, Mr Bond. I hope our little game isn't causing you to perspire.

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

I really need to see The Cyclist and Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story.

I'd be pretty happy voting for Wings of Desire, Matewan, Au Revoir Les Enfants, RoboCop, Red Sorghum...

...but Where Is the Friend's Home? gets my vote today.  (Granted, tomorrow I'll probably change it to the Malle film.)

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Wow. Clearly no consensus here. I voted Evil Dead 2.
