Out of that list here is my pairing down of my favorites:

Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Mad Max
Lost In Translation
Drugstore Cowboy
The Evil Dead
Nosferatu
Memento
Clerks
Resevoir Dogs

Glaring ommissions from my limited knowledge

Pi
Hard Eight
Life Is Beautiful

Most overrated:
The Passion! (big surprise right. lol)

Piece of crap that doesn't belong on any list:
The Pink Flamingos!!!
Never mind the wierd sex stuff...who the hell wants to see someone eat dog sh*t! What a freak!

Damn I missed the first page!! Guess I will edit. lol

Still can't believe Paul Thomas Anderson's Hard Eight didn't make the cut. What a well made first effort. Filmed like a pro, but yet very low budget.
