I could've chosen ANY scene of this masterpiece, since it's probably the greatest cinematic experience of all time, but the synthesis of these lonely images of the Dicscovery and the music by Khatchaturian is just epic. You really get the feeling that you're FAR FAR away...

Adaptation (2002)
This movie features one of the most inventive and original screenplays ever. I just love the buildup of this scene and the idea of McKee having a speech in a movie.

"Ah okay, thanks."

My favourite part of this movie would have been the closing scene where Roman Duris is entering the concert hall imitating playing a piano with his blood covered hands. But Duris recording and practicing the Bach toccata comes in as a close second.

Blade Runner (1982)
This is my favourite movie DEATH of all time. Soap bubbels, shattered glasses and neon lights. That's one awesome way to die..

Breathless (1960)
Not my favourite Godard movie, but this scene having the reporters questioning Jean-Pierre Melville like some sort of an oracle is just incredibly funny.

"What is your greatest ambition in life?"
"To become immortal... and then die."

City Lights (1931)
This is my favourite movie scene of ALL TIME.

For me, Chaplin seeing the flower girl again is the greatest thing that has ever been captured on film.

My favourite opening shot EVER. I love how the images slowly emerge and the damper entering Venice in front of the sunrise. Like Mahler has written his music solely for this movie.

Family Plot (1976)
This scene is just incredible and one hell of a ride. And it's only filmed from two perspectives! Pure Hitchcock.

Happy Feet (2006)
This choice probably stands out the most. Allthough a few of you would disagree, you really have to have guts to make a movie about tap-dancing and singing penguins that actually LOOK like penguins!

And I just love the moment of silence right before "Boogie Wonderland".

The sparkling lights of Paris.
The beautiful face of Jeanne Moreau.
And a jazzy score by Miles Davis.

Sometimes you just have to put the right things in the right place.

Lisztomania (1975)
Although not one of my favourite movies, "Lisztomania" still has some unforgettable scenes. My favourite being this pop-version of Liszt's Liebestraum mixed up with a silent movie comedy. How can you come up with something like that?

Note: Sound is out of sync.

Manhattan (1979)
My SECOND favourite opening scene EVER. Woody's voice narration combined with these beautiful black and white images of New York and Gershwin's music are always a pleasure to watch.

Anna Karina is my favourite "Nouvelle Vague" actress. There is nothing much to say, just watch and let her captivate you're senses.

This is a very powerful performance by Peter Finch and the most memorable scenes of the movie. Still relevant today, as it was 30 year ago.

The Searchers (1956)
I dont particularly like westerns, and i don't particularly like this sort of music, but John Wayne standing in the doorway and holding his arm is just one of those moments where a picture says more than a thousand words.

This ending scene of Kieslowski's masterpiece "Three Colors: Blue" is truly great. I love the moment where Binoche is touching the score and the chorus begins.
