The Manchurian Candidate. The remake pales in comparison. In fact, I don’t know why they bothered. They never ask me about these things.

This is one of my all-time favorite films.

Breaking Away at IMDb and at Wikipedia

I can’t quite put my finger on it, but it captures post-high school, friendship, dreams, ordinary lives, family dynamics, humor and spirit. Definitely one of the best, happiest sports films ever.

My favorite bit of dialogue.
