Brokeback Mountain
Meet Me in St. Louis
I Was Born, But...
Au hasard Balthazar
The Death of Maria Malibran
Pather Panchali
The Eclipse
Andrei Rublev
Nights of Cabiria
Les Vampires

Cheers,
Scott

Chris,

You are not the only one here. 

I agree with 3 of your picks Brokeback Mountain, Shawshank Redemption, and Pretty Woman, but it's always hard for me to pick my top 5 or top 10.  I have to think about it more.

Brokeback Mountain
The Godfather
Shawshank Redemption
Sense and Sensibility
Phantom of the Opera
