Clockwork Orange - My favourite thing about it is the mixing of sound and images and Alex is probably my favourite character in fiction. Way better than the book
Amadeus - I love so much about this film but the thing I enjoy the most is probably the costume and set design, and the dynamic between Amadeus and Salieri is really fascinating
The Hunt - It's a soul crushing film and that's mainly down to the acting. There isn't a single line of dialogue that feels unconvincing
Before Sunrise - It's just such a pleasant film, and that goes for the Sunset and Midnight too. I adore the dialogue between the 2 main characters and just how much you get to bond and learn about them.
Whiplash - I like just about everything here, the cinematography, acting, sound aspects and just how intense the film feels and of course the ending.

Amadeus was completely destroyed for me by Mozart... just being juvenile, American-y & irritating for 3 hours straight. kind of a problem when he's the main character. Salieri was amazing though

Clockwork Orange is right up there as one of my old time favourites though!...love a bit of the old Ludwig Van.

I can see why Mozart being juvenile would be seen as irritating but I didn't mind it. It's a cool subversion of expectations that I think is historically accurate too. Did you watch the Directors Cut that's 3 hours or the 150 minute version. The shorter one is way better imo

Airplane! is ****ing hilarious
Life of Brian as well, but with added poignancy

In a completely different vein:
Dunkirk, though it's very stressful to watch.
The entirety of Twin Peaks season 3 was ranked best film of 2017 by Cahier du Cinéma so I'll count that too.

I will do
A Million ways to die in the West
Mad Max : Fury Road
Mary Poppins Returns
I recently watched Gentlemen on yesmovies. It's probably the best movie ever. In my three years. Guy Ritchie knows how to make great movies. I think it's a gift that comes at birth. Gentlemen is very addictive. And you can't tear yourself away from this movie. And you want to watch it more and more. I advise everybody to watch it!
