    1. Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? - A
    2. Carnal Knowledge - A-
    3. Charlie Wilson's War - B+
    4. The Birdcage - B+
    5. Biloxi Blues - B+
    (haven't seen this in years so I don't know if it holds up, but a favorite back in the day)
    6. Regarding Henry - B
    7. Wolf - B
    (Nicholson makes it a watchable, enjoyable mess)
    8. Closer - B-
    9. Primary Colors - B-
    10. The Graduate - C+
    (What could have been a good movie is marred by making the character upper class. I do like the ending though)

    I've seen Working Girl but don't remember more than a general feeling of "ok".

    Own: 0 (Should buy Virginia Woolf, an HD Ann-Margaret would make Carnal Knowledge a must)

    Would like to see Wit and Angels in America. Interested in Silkwood and Catch-22. Guess I should give Postcards a look since it seems to be well thought of here.

    I've only recently began to catch up on his earlier work, and it seems like that's his best stuff.
