The Outlaw Josey Wales is the best film in Clint Eastwood's long and illustrious career IMO.

Thought I'd bump this and make it a three year long thread due to the subject coming up in another thread.

I agree with a lot of the movies mentioned besides the ones in my OP list, to which I'm adding:

Carnage
The Words
(highly apropos)
Detachment
Zero Dark Thirty
(yes, MF and all)

And for the record, I'm sticking to my guns on (500), to which a good portion of this thread's contentiousness became dedicated. I started to try to find the Woody Allen movie it supposedly copied but I just couldn't bring myself to wade through the pretentious crap to find it, if it exists at all. :roll:

Wyler's movies are quite politically charged, but I enjoyed "The Little Foxes" for its dialogue. An ingenue in a svengali pit, with only an ailing, wise father, and a loyal but strong-willed love interest to guide her to maturity.

but if i want some juicy quotes i'll watch peep show.

The Day The Earth Caught Fire has some pretty fantastic British dialogue, Sweet Smell of Success is from a few years earlier and has a noir New York setting instead of a London one but both are fantastic. The storyline in the former is better as it's about the earth's axis shifting and the changing weather patterns ensuing from it and newspaper men looking into the conspiracy.

Other thread (dream combinations) reminded me: Cosmopolis. I was thinking how i don't really care for scripty movies, how it can detract from the cinematic. but Cos is this grotesque onslaught insectlike verbal dance thing. it's disgusting and i love it.
