It seems that we all enjoy deep and heavy music of Zappa. I wonder if everybody in here approach the movies the same way.<br><br>I think answers to this question really help to get an idea about what the person you're dealing with is about.<br><br>My top ten constantly changes depending on my mood but my no 1 is definately GoodFellas. 8)

If I had to name only one movie, it would probably be 'The Elephant Man' by David Lynch.
