You may want to double check your comments. The comment you have for "Taxi Driver" is the one that Luc Besson for "Star Wars". Here I will save you the trouble of going back to the article to copy and paste what he said about "Taxi Driver": http://www.imdb.com/comic-con/luc-bes...
"What hit me with Taxi Driver is the power of actors, and how far you can go with them. The camera sometimes feels like it’s the witness of the actors. It feels raw. It makes you think that no one has rehearsed, you just happened to be here with the camera, even though you know that’s not the case."

You mention 11 movies in the intro. Typo?

Yep, for some reason, I fixed it in the GS page and totally forgot about the IMDb's.
Thanks :)

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). There are lots of my favorites, plus a couple of under-appreciated ones, I like too.

Pretty cool selections and comments.

Under Network, missing a word: "This *is* a critique of society ..."

I noticed that but I guess that's how Besson wrote it, am I allowed to change the wording (even in the case of a typo)?

I think that would be okay. Put it in brackets if you like: [is]. But I guess it's not important.

This one will probably go overwhelmingly for Star Wars.

My pick is Amadeus. I saw it when it was in the theaters and I was very young but it stuck with me.
