One of my all-time, favorite movies is High Noon. Unless you've seen it, there's no real way to describe how it works. It's in black and white, told mostly in real time, and is a great western. But somehow, that doesn't do it justice. It's one of the greatest movies - in the sense of best put together, most moving, well-acted - that America has produced. It should be required viewing in high school, I think, just to say "hey, look, we did this, and really, what else do you need to know about America that you can't get from this film?"
