"La Vita e Bella" (Life Is Beautiful) - is a beautiful film, but it can be used to chose friends too. - Never befriend someone who is unable to laugh AND cry when they watch this film! (Your best friends will be those who cry & laugh at the same time)

Scent of a Woman, with Al Pacino — who won an Oscar for his role in it — and his now-famous line that has become a part of our culture: "hoo-ha!" The tango scene ... the Ferarri scene ... the prep school disciplinary hearing scene ... unforgettable!

Hotel Rwanda and Schindler's List. These are true great stories of self-sacrifice and heroism in situations where you can conveniently walk away from and stay safe yourself.

I love lots of movies, but must see before you die? I would vote for Signs (2002) with Mel Gibson & Joaquin Phoenix. It's much more than SciFi; delves into our belief system...but the SciFi part is FANTASTIC. M. Night Shyamaian wrote & directed it.

Casablanca. Incredible chemistry between Bogart (his first romantic role) and Ingrid Bergman, Nazis, intrigue, and a not so "Hollywood" ending.

Gaslight... a classic film with Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer. The psychological term "to gaslight someone" stems from that film. It's about a husband who wants to make his wife seem crazy for nefarious reasons. Too good to miss!
