Alphabet Meme

So, for whatever reason, a bunch of film blogs have been recently posting their "Alphabet Meme"s. Basically you pick a film (that you at least like) for every letter of the alphabet...pretty simple (except for the letters q, x, y, & z). Anyway, here's my contribution:

After the Wedding
Badlands
Closely Watched Trains
Down By Law
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Fargo
George Washington
Harder They Come, the
Ivan's Childhood
Jackie Brown
Killer of Sheep
Lost in Translation
Matador (Almodovar)
No Country for Old Men
Oldboy
Proposition, the
Quiz Show
Rushmore
Seven Beauties
Taxi Driver
Underground
Vanishing Point
Woman in the Dunes
X-Men (seriously, can someone come up with something better?)
Young Adam
Zodiac

-In other news, stoked that Obama trounced McCain in the election. However, as far as Prop. 8 goes, I found myself participating in a protest march in San Francisco last night. What a shameful election result...

That's cool that you were able to go to the demonstration. I wanted to go, but the whole school/living in Menlo Park thing got in the way. Prop 8 is sort of like winning a race and then promptly getting kicked in the nuts.

There is a movie "Xala" that I'd like to see... but haven't yet.
Is there a movie called "Xanadu"? I bet there's loads of porn that begin in X
