fight club

damn.  ya'll are hittin all the classics.  Fight Club was one of those deep movies...the actual Fight Club was just the tip of the ice berg for what the movie was about.  I think it deserves to be in the overall top 3 list.

Love that movie, but it wouldn't make the top 3 that I'd recommend.

Well, I've watched nearly all of the netflix top 250, plus hundreds more, and I've been reading voraciously for 20+ years now.  My question is, how can you come up with a top 3 list?  I can never do it.  So many things I've read and seen have made an impact on me.  Is your list biased towards things you've seen or read recently, or just whatever sticks out in your mind?
