Only six movies, and not the same antediluvian but phenomenal cliché repertoire like Chinatown, Schindler's List, Citizen Kane, The Big Blue, Jean de Florette and The Shawshank Redemption, but more sentimental gems that resonate with my own life. Movies that reside out there in the exosphere, shining less truistically in human minds but nonetheless, movies that have hearts and souls of magnesium and ice.

From the dramatic humour of Ang Lee’s 1994 Taiwanese film *Eat Drink Man Woman** who’s first scene you’ll savour forever; Luc Besson’s 1990 hard hitting hip noir-ish La Femme Nikita; the joyful New Zealand sports drama The World’s Fastest Indian starring Anthony Hopkins; Ridley Scott’s classic 1979 Alien whose minimal musical score leaves space for the horror of inner and outer worldly fears; Spielberg’s 1985 realistic American period drama The Color Purple starring Oprah Winfrey in an outstanding performance; and finally Yojiro Takita’s 2008 beautifully-filmed Departures which will make you smile and contemplate life and death in a different way.
