Not so much a case of "could" watch in my case... more a case of "do watch". The Dresser, It's a Wonderful Life, Godfather (all parts), Goodfellas, Shawshank Redemption, Schindler's List, Psycho, Good Will Hunting, Dead Poets' Society, Dances with Wolves. I could continue, but will stick with my top ten.
