Poets' Favorite Movies

I've left out some of the classics, including Casablanca, The African Queen, Dr. Zhivago, Singin' in the Rain and Breakfast at Tiffany's, so I could get my list down to these ten:

Sophie's Choice
American Splendor
Paradise Now
The Crying Game
Grizzly Man
The Thin Man
Shakespeare Behind Bars
