I really do love Aladdin and A League Of Their Own, but Unforgiven takes this in a cake walk.

Added:

- Brother's Keeper
- The Long Day Closes
- Léolo
- The Boys of St. Vincent
- Simple Men
- Dream of Light
- The Spirit of Christmas (Jesus vs. Frosty)
- Visions of Light: The Art of Cinematography
- Center Stage
- Orlando

I'll vote Canadian, I think — either Léolo or The Boys of St. Vincent — though I plan to watch Dream of Light this weekend, so that could change things.  I also really want/need to see Il Ladro di bambini.

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

Glengarry Glen Ross, with Orlando around the bend
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.

Glengarry Glen Ross here. The dialogue in that film is just so good, I can watch those exchanges between Pacino, Harris, Spacey, Lemon and Arkin just all day. Such a brilliant film.
