Name five films that you think everyone should see for whatever reason; powerful, inspiring, repulsive, honest, hilarious, beautiful...

Perhaps try and not repeat the same ones quite a few times, as well.

I'll start;

1. The Dreamers
2. Spun
3. The Rules of Attraction
4. Hedwig and the Angry Inch
5. The Breakfast Club
