And almost every day, I think about adding a movie like Jerry Maguire, or Stand By Me, or Requiem for a Dream, or Juno, or even Tootsie.  But I don't.  Though Dead Poets Society was a relatively recent addition (even though I've loved it since I was a kid) - so you never know what may happen.

On any given day, the ordering feels like it wants to be something different - so I just don't think about it or look at this list too often, cuz that would just madden me, as it never feels quite right.  Our personal relationships to movies are ever-ebbing-and-flowing things that depend so much on any day's mood, memories, and unpredictable stimuli.  So more think of this as an unordered list of 46 amazing movies that I personally connect with in beautiful ways.  And I hope you do too.
