Stanley Kubrick's "Paths of Glory" WW1 film about the injustices suffered by the everyday troops. Quite apposite given the anniversary we are fast approaching. Nothing short of a masterpiece and a brilliant performance by Kirk Douglas. You will never forget watching it.

All quiet on the Western Front, so sad because of the utter futility of war that it tries to portray.

A Christmas Carol starring Alastair Sims as Ebenezer Scrooge.  I am so moved by the story of man's greed, selfishness and utter indifference to the suffering of others, which is then followed by the gradual conversion to love, compassion and care. It pulls at the heartstrings.

I've seen other versions of the film, but this one is my favourite and I look forward to it every year on television. 

As Tiny Tim would say...."Merry Christmas Everyone."   :'(

Boy's Don't Cry!!! Wonderful portrayal by Hilary Swank about the rape and murder of transexual Brandon Teena.  It was heartbreaking and had me in tears.  Her portrayal of a female boxer in Million Dollar Baby was another that was very poignant.  She won Oscars for both, and deservedly so.

Cabaret.  A great story, great music and a glimpse of pre war Germany with a chilling hint at the nazi future of that country.
Looks like history may repeat itself.
