Favorite Movies?

I was thinking about it over the weekend. How do I rank? By story,
craft, acting, all the above? Or just in my enjoyment? What about
watchability--will I watch it repeatedly? That might not be fair. The
Usual Suspects was great to watch the first time, but not nearly as good
again. Should I be ranking the first watch? Because Tenenbaums got
significantly better over time. I'm going to say it's a combination of
all of these. Maybe five isn't enough.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Dr. Strangelove
The Royal Tenenbaums
Requiem for a Dream
Fight Club
