Mister Charlie told you so.

So I admit I've never heard of, much less seen, this Rashomon thingy... Though I'm sure it wouldn't matter.
there is no explanation
it's all inside your head

i'm just happy Rashomon squeaked in here.

Scorsese, of course, would think you were a moron for rating Goodfellas above it, but that doesn't mean much.

the importance of Rashomon in the history of film cannot be overstated. if you haven't seen it, you should see it. it's better than everything on your netflix queue.

Rashomon got a bum draw... them's the breaks sometimes.
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Rashomon. Kurosawa was a genius, it's too bad there's not more of his work in this thing.

Shit.  I read that too quickly and thought it was Rushmore.  Thinking to myself "how could that possibly get voted in here."  Still can't believe Seven Samurai didn't make the cut.

Same here so this is an easy one despite Goodfellas being a good contender in any round
We are all and we are all we are
Far flung bits of Sun and bits of Stars
From the  ocean from the land from the
beginning to end
Backwards forwards back toward
we belong

same here. Goodfellas is a top 10 for me. I used to watch it repeatedly when I was a youngster.
