recommend me one film from my watchlist and i can only reply back once i've watched your recommendation

It seems like a lot of the films in my watchlist have been there for months now, and I'd really like to see some sort of progress.

Can you recommend me one film in this list that you think I should watch? I can only reply back to your comment once I've watched (or attempted to watch) your choice. Hopefully that will give me some real motivation to finally see some of these films....
