Alphabet Meme

J.D. at Valley Dreamin' tagged me for Fletch's Alphabet Meme, the rules of which are:
1. Pick one film to represent each letter of the alphabet.

2. The letter "A" and the word "The" do not count as the beginning of a film's title, unless the film is simply titled A or The, and I don't know of any films with those titles.

3. Return of the Jedi belongs under "R," not "S" as in Star Wars Episode IV: Return of the Jedi. This rule applies to all films in the original Star Wars trilogy; all that followed start with "S." Similarly, Raiders of the Lost Ark belongs under "R," not "I" as in Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. Conversely, all films in the LOTR series belong under "L" and all films in the Chronicles of Narnia series belong under "C," as that's what those filmmakers called their films from the start. In other words, movies are stuck with the titles their owners gave them at the time of their theatrical release. Use your better judgement to apply the above rule to any series/films not mentioned.

4. Films that start with a number are filed under the first letter of their number's word. 12 Monkeys would be filed under "T."

5. Link back to Blog Cabins in your post so that I can eventually type "alphabet meme" into Google and come up #1, then make a post where I declare that I am the King of Google.

6. If you're selected, you have to then select 5 more people.

I'm not selecting five more people but here goes:

Alphaville
Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan
Closer
Dogville
Elephant
Footlight Parade
Gosford Park
House of Flying Daggers
In the Bedroom

Loved Closer and Gosford Park is a great, underrated flick.

Like the style of your list, I was lazy and just stole Fletch's format.
