That's very very sad that they had to go and ruin that for you Azzam. I'm not gonna list my top 10, because that's hard, just 10 that occur to me right now. -Millenium Actress - for a gorgeously constructed narrative and allowing the viewer to answer questions for themselves -Russian Ark - for inven...
