  1. Nice post, Kip. Great reminder of awesome films. Many of those would be on my 100 list as well. Both Run Lola Run and Eternal Sunshine… are such different and unique love stories. I’d add Silver Linings…. now, too, on mine. 🙂

  2. Lots and lots of my favorites on there too! I’m definitely always game for a good foreign flick (especially set in Spain!). A few I need to check out too, so thanks for the suggestions!
