My Top 10 Favourite Films of All Timeby GatoradeBoom | created - 18 Sep 2012 | updated - 25 Feb 2014 | Public
NOTES/SPECS: If there is a film in this list (there are three) that are from a trilogy, this means it is the TRILOGY that sits in that spot's place; I have chosen my favourite of the three films to represent that specific trilogy. While my number one film on this list is permanent, and films two through four float around in those three spots, films five through ten have no particular order, much like two, three and four. I hope this second paragraph makes sense, LOL! :P

When I saw this film in theaters on New Year's Eve 2011, the nominees for the Academy Awards hadn't been released. Yet when I walked out of that theater, my heart singing and tears streaming down my face, I said to myself, "That film is going to WIN Best Picture. Not just get nominated -- NO. It is going to WIN." And guess what? It did. :) Simply the most gorgeous and profound film I have ever seen.
