I like to think I know good movies...I'm not the kind of guy to choose indie films and boring movies we're supposed to like...I hate pretentious movie recommendations...so, here you go:
If you can find it:
How To Kill Your Neighbor's Dog (fantastically funny, sad, and moving...IMO, a movie needs these things to be great)
Big Fish...again, it has some funny parts, is insightful, sad, and moving...the acting is superb.
If you have to choose betwixt them, Big Fish may be the safer bet.
