Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

So...What are your all time favorite movies?

I see threads on music and bags and what not

What about movies that changed your perception of the art form of cinema.
Given you can say "Breaking Away" but what other movies do you love
I will start
(in no order what so ever)

1)Even Dwarfs Started Small-Werner Herzog
2)What time is it there? -Tsai Ming-liang
3) The Killing of a Chinese Bookie/Faces- John Cassavetes
4) Poto and Cabengo/ Routine Pleasure- Jean-Pierre Gorin
5)Dogville/the kingdom- Lars Von Trier
and several more but I want to keep the ball rolling

The Last Waltz changed everything for me in terms of music. I'm also a big fan of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.
