UPDATED: Jess told me today that the ending of Harold and Maude makes her feel alive, and I think I know what she's talking about. There are few more uplifting films, and I can see why that wins out over the aggressively downbeat Raging Bull. But I will say that Raging Bull is personally important because it leaves me confident that cinema is a meaningful art form. That said, any movie that has Ruth Gordon and Bud Cort stealing trees is okay by me.

Another pair of near-exact opposites... love, life, and loss vs., well...loss, loss, and more loss. It's a really hard choice to make, because I love them both, but I'll have to go with the latter (Raging Bull)

Tough call. I'll have to go with the one I've seen more times -- Harold and Maude.
