The only genre I don't care for much is horror (not to be confused with thriller). Beyond that, I'm usually up for anything.
I saw "The Last Emperor" and "To Live" back-to-back last spring and still haven't stopped thinking about either.
I've been getting into South American film recently, but I also like a lot of the Irish and Scandinavian films I've seen.
These lists are always so predictable, so here are some not everyone is familiar with: 1) Ascenseur pour l'échafaud (absolutely gorgeous 1958 Louis Malle noir, with a score by Miles Davis); 2) Äideistä parhain (2005 Finnish film that's worth it just for Maria Lundqvist's performance as a twice-grieving mother), and 3) Worlds Apart (2008 Danish film about a young woman trapped between a restrictive sect and her desire to be outside of it). The films I saw as a teenager that changed my life were "Dr. Strangelove" and "To Kill a Mockingbird." And the film I've laughed the hardest at in my life is "The 40-Year-Old Virgin." ;)
I'm a 28-year-old from Manchester. I was formerly a member of a movie meet-up group in Massachusetts while attending college there and can't wait to get back into one here at home!
