18. I Still Think OP Is a Great Movie
The acting, especially Mary Tyler Moore and Donald Sutherland, is some of the best I've seen anywhere.

I watched Raging Bull once, thought it was great, but can't say I've ever had any desire to see it again.

OP still hits home, now more than ever for me. MTM's character didn't hate her son, I don't think. She just had nothing to give him, resented the fact that he lived when her favorite died, and couldn't bear to face that aspect of herself.
