MOVIES are not only MOVING pictures, but works of art that MOVE the viewer.
This is my subjective, personal list of MOVIES that MOVED me, made me laugh, made me cry, irritated me, made me think, surprised me, entertained me, provided new insights etc. - but did NOT treat me (and its audience) like an ignorant fool.
This list will be regularly updated.
