I was just recommending What Dreams May Come to my girlfriend. Haha. We were talking about the power of religious and classical imagery.

Depends on the person, obviously (not everyone's taste runs to True Romance or whatever). But one that is almost universally well-received and I always suggest is Let the Right One In. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is another.

Equilibrium

Non-American Films I recommend

Angel-A
City of Lost Children
Let the Right One In
The Killer
Hard Boiled
Raise the Red Lantern
Shanghai Triad
The Emperor and the Assassin is awesome.


For Westerners who are curious about anime,
Cowboy Bebop, the Movie
Wings of Honneamise (a bit dense, but whoooboy, the animation)


And lately,
The Devil's Double

The one at the top of my list is The Shawshank Redemption. I never appreciated it until I got a little bit older, but now I recommend it to everyone. It's seems to have universal appeal.

Chinese Odyssey 2002. Hilarious Oriental faux-historical (but really, slapstick) thing that none of you will ever see unless I keep harping on about it. :p
