Heyo - don't have all that many movies queued up and even fewer that I'm super excited about. Anyways here's some of my favorites with descriptions when I feel like it paired with an album that reminds me of it. In pretty random order except the top 5 which are only kindof random
1Massive Attack
Mezzanine


The Matrix - wildly innovative visual effects often overshadow the fascinating storyline
2Beck
Guero


The Rules of Attraction - Bret Easton Ellis adaptation that I enjoyed even more than American Psycho. Cool visual effects, real character development -- this one has a Lot going for it.
3Coil
Horse Rotorvator


American History X - It's funny how much Venice Beach has changed since this was made. Of course Ed Norton was fantastic but the acting of the young kid as well as Stacey Keach goes too unnoticed in this masterpiece.
4Tenacious D
Tenacious D


The Mouse that Roared - A hilarious film that's a must see for fans of Peter Sellers. Even better than Dr. Strangelove imo
5Kashiwa Daisuke
Program Music I


Mulholland Drive - Film grabs you and doesn't let go. David Lynch at his best.
6Aphex Twin
Selected Ambient Works, Vol. II


Manic - Interesting flick about being young enraged and hospitalized for insanity. Strikes a personal chord perhaps but Don Cheadle and Joseph Gordon-Levitt make the thing realistic and powerful.
7Frank Sinatra
In The Wee Small Hours


Midnight Cowboy - Interesting portrayal of the not so glamorous aspects of New York City that my older co-workers grew up with.
8Queen
A Day At The Races


The Great Escape - Another older movie that really holds up.
9Queen
A Night at the Opera


Kinsey - proof that Lucidity can rec more than just music.
10Gary Jules
Trading Snakeoil For Wolftickets


Donnie Darko - should be required viewing for high school students.
11Bob Marley and The Wailers
Legend


50/50 - a well made film that's both funny and heartfelt.
12The Lonely Island
Incredibad


Zoolander - lol.
13Tricky
Maxinquaye


Bully - another gripping and intense film by Larry Clark. Highly recommended, especially for those that saw and enjoyed Kids.
14Beastie Boys
Paul's Boutique


Pump up the Volume - Gained me so much respect for Christian Slater. This was a better and more original film than the more recent and commercially viable Pirate Radio, filled with authentic teenage angst and rebellion against authority.
15Elton John
Madman Across the Water


Almost Famous - Penny Lane: I've made a decision, I'm gonna live in Morocco for one year. I need a new crowd. Do you wanna come? William Miller: Yes! Yeah. Penny Lane: Are you sure? William Miller: Ask me again. Penny Lane: Do you wanna come? William Miller: Yes! Yes.
16Jimi Hendrix
Are You Experienced


Casablanca - Suuuch a good film. I dodged it for a while cause it looks dated but it so isn't
17Soundtrack
Kill Bill Vol. 1 Original Soundtrack


Kill Bill Vol. I - Wild and provocative
18Nas
Illmatic


Boyz in the hood - Larry Fishburne (Morpheus in the Matrix) mentoring his son (played by Cuba Gooding Jr) in a heartfelt tale of struggles in developing areas of Los Angeles. Much more serious, much more personal and musch better made than I had expected.
19Elliott Smith
Either/Or


American Beauty - If you want to better understand what is beautiful, watch this film again.
20Thievery Corporation
The Mirror Conspiracy


Ocean's 11 (2001) - Slick.
21Soundtrack
Lost Highway


Lost Highway - My 2nd favorite by David Lynch, who also happens to be one of my favorite filmmakers.
22Ludwig van Beethoven
Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Op. 67


A Clockwork Orange - Never fails to give me a demonic grin all the way through.
23Pink Floyd
The Dark Side of the Moon


Rebel Without a Cause - Holds up incredibly well due in no small part to James Dean's convincing roll as an outcast with little regard for his own safety and well being (which, considering he killed himself shortly thereafter, probably wasn't all acting) ... "Don't ever call me chicken"
24Air
Moon Safari


Robin Hood: Men in Tights - Mel Brooks always puts a smile to my face.
25The Future Sound of London
Lifeforms


Serenity - Believe the hype. A must see for sci-fi fans.
26Soundtrack
Dazed and Confused


Dazed and Confused - a lot of fun. Excellent party film.
27Gorillaz
Demon Days


Kids - And you thought you were a bad kid growing up ...
28Animal Collective
Merriweather Post Pavilion


Scott Pilgrim vs. the World - A lot of fun to watch. Just a very very solid film.
29A Tribe Called Quest
The Low End Theory


Up - My favorite Pixar!
30Chet Baker
The Best of Chet Baker Sings


Some Like it Hot - Fucking hilarious. Also Marilyn Monroe omfg so hot.
31Zero 7
Simple Things


Boogie Nights - Erotic.
32The Smiths
Hatful of Hollow


500 days of Summer - I guess I like this film more than everyone else seems to. Oh well, whatever, nevermind.
33Radiohead
Kid A


Mysterious Skin - Gregg Araki's powerfully dark film about how molestation affects the development of those affected. Not for the fainthearted but fascinating nonetheless.
34Arctic Monkeys
Favourite Worst Nightmare


Eurotrip - I watched this at least 6 times whilst spending a year in Germany.
35Red Hot Chili Peppers
Blood Sugar Sex Magik


Funky Monks - A must see for all Chili Peppers fans and one that
36DJ Shadow
Endtroducing.....


Scratch - Exploring the roles of DJs and turntablists in the hip-hop movement of the '90s. The segment featuring DJ Shadow was particularly cool for me.
37Leftfield
Leftism


The 40 year old Virgin - Upon my high school graduation, a female friend of mine (who likely would have taken my v card) gave me this dvd and said I should use it as a guide in college. Thanks?
38The Future Sound of London
Lifeforms


Being John Malkovitch - What if you could actually control a person?
39The Orb
Orbs Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld


Enter the Void - Tbh I'm not sure if I actually like this film. But I simply cannot shake some of the imagery so it certainly fascinates me.
40Aphex Twin
Selected Ambient Works 85-92


Rounders - For poker fans everywhere
41Burial
Untrue


The Dark Knight - You've seen it ... You know what I'm talking about
42Soundtrack
Garden State


Garden State - @theacademy. Hi!
43Tangerine Dream

44The Doors
The Doors
