      I respect you greatly for watching and loving "The Pianist". That was one of those movies that I knew I should see, tried to watch, and could just not bear to see more than half of it. Just too powerful.

      My list:

      The Princess Bride
      Young Frankenstein
      A Fish Called Wanda

        I have watched it when I was 18 years old and it was very strong and powerful experience. Since then I have seen many movies and read many books about holocaust (right now I read Kindly ones by Jonathan Littell) but nothing has touched me so deeply as The Pianist. But it's not that kind of movie one wants to watch "for pleasure"

            "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

            Jack london, "Before Adam"

              Yes, I think many of those in power are attempting to influence thought patterns. I listened to 30 min. This speaker is way too slow.

              Does he finally get to saying that movies are also being used to influence thought patterns?

                    Yes, The Pianist is one of the most moving films ever. It would be very hard to watch again. Another film in that category is The Deer Hunter. I saw it once and was so overpowered by it that I can't bear the thought of seeing it a second time.

                    My favorite movies, in the sense of wanting to see them again and again are:

                    Casablanca
                    My Cousin Vinny
                    Shane
                    Live your life and love your life. It's the only one you get.

                      To which part should I have made "yummy" sounds?

                      Also, there is nothing wrong with the comedy of Young Frankenstein. Nothing at all.

                      Now Rocky Horror Picture Show is a different kettle of fish....
