The Red Shoes!
Soderbergh’s Ocean’s Eleven. For everything it aspires to be, it is perfect.
The Red Shoes
Once Upon a Time in the West
Lately: Nemec’s A Report on the Party and the Guests.
It may be as mainstream as it gets, but the original Star Wars still defines a perfect entertainment.
For sheer technique, Melville’s Le Samourai is perfectly executed. Almost perfect as a film, but perfect as an exhibition of visual style.
L’Eclisse and Blow-Up, if it weren’t for the foot of the crew member on the left side of the frame during the orgy scene. Then again, perhaps Antonioni thought it was a mistake worth keeping. Someone could have been standing there watching them mess around on the floor within the confines of the film.
4 Months 3 Weeks and 2 Days and The Silence of the Lambs.
A Single Man, that was the first movie that pop in my mind truly
one flew over the cuckoos nest , there is appsolutely nothing wrong with that movie
Quite honestly, La Dolce Vita.

Always interesting to see what other people say on this subject.
I believe that Magnolia is a “perfect” film as well as The Engilsh Patient….absolutely perfect masterpieces…brilliant. Vertigo is right up there too.. just perfect.
Evil Dead and Flaming Creatures!!!!
If i have to think about a perfect movie, well, these Are my favorites:
La Nuit americaine
2001: A Space Odyssey. I wouldn’t change a frame.
Also the best Billy Wilders: Double Indemnity, Some Like it Hot, Sunset Blvd., The Apartment, etc. Not a single line of dialogue falls out of place.
citizen kane. no contest.
