Really hard to say because 'favorite movie' isn't one that I'm always going to put on when I decide to rewatch a movie. I think out of all the great entertaining movies out there, Network probably has the most take-away -- it's about as close as anyone working with film has ever come to Shakespeare-level insight and eloquence.

Did nobody else notice that both Jennifer Lawrence and Jeremy Renner had transient, horrible accents in American Hustle?
