05. Boogie Nights (1997)

Tomatometer: 96%
Where can you find the longest single takes in cinema? Porn movies...and Boogie Nights. P.T. Anderson's epic seriocomic homage to sex, drugs, and bellbottoms may have the glossy look of the era, but it also uncovers the human element that was stitched into the hedonism.
04. A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

Tomatometer: 94%
It's always a trip when you re-watch the first movie of a horror series. Friday the 13th is actually pretty tame. Halloween is a subtle slasher. And A Nightmare on Elm Street? Wes Craven seeded the movie with ethereal lightness; the movie floats with unique dream-like anxiety.
