3. Christopher Nolan's "Memento"
4. Milos Forman's "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest"
5. David Fincher's "Se7en"
6. Walter Salles' "Diarios de motocicleta" ("The Motorcycle Diaries")
7. Francis Ford Coppola's "The Godfather Trilogy" (Cheat)
8. François Truffaut's "Les quatre cents coups" ("The 400 Blows")
9. Terrence Malick's "The Thin Red Line"
10. The Coen Brothers' "Raising Arizona"
11. Stanley Kubrick's "Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb"
12. Rob Reiner's "Stand By Me"
13. Brad Bird's "The Iron Giant"
14. Steven Spielberg's "Close Encounters Of The Third Kind"
