1. How to Dismantle An Atomic Bomb

glad to see a bit of love for How to Dismantle.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

It's not my favorite but for one reason or another I think it's my most played.

It's quite good.

War just edges out Achung Baby, with Rattle and Hum as a third place.  I know what everyone thinks about Rattle and Hum but I like every song on it and listened to it from beginning to end many times.

After that I like individual songs, some very much, but those are the only 3 albums that I liked all or nearly all of.

Achtung is the best.  And my favorite.  Then Joshua Tree, Unforgettable Fire, War, Zooropa, Pop, Rattle & Hum, Wide Awake in America, Boy.

I haven't listened to their albums after Pop.  I mean, I've heard them, but not enough to be fair to them.  All the ones I listed I listened to obsessively, and I do mean obsessively.  I wore out the tapes.  But I haven't had it in me to listen to the more recent work and really meld with it.
The answers you seek are in Norway.

Achtung!

Though I don't really know the rest of their filmography catalogue as well as I should.  But at least you can change your vote now, if you want.

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

Under a Blood Red Sky was in heavy rotation in the car this summer and was pretty great. But still definitely this.

I knew it.  I knew I'd be the only vote for October.  War and then Joshua Tree would be my next picks, but October just does something to me.
