Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
I love this movie, okay? It's kind of obnoxious, with it's sense of superiority over everybody, in Hollywood or otherwise. But it's also whip-smart, clever, funny, and it makes the Fourth Wall it's bitch. Sure, Michelle Monoghan is annoying after awhile, but even she can keep up with the sardonic tone. Also, this is probably Val Kilmer's Pulp Fiction.
A Scanner Darkly
If Waking Life was just the experiment, this is the final product. Because, I think, rotoscope is the only way to really get into the Philip K. Dick book, or anything Phillip K. Dick (on that note, fuck you, Minority Report). This saw the shining, the resurection, and the exception to many an actor (Robert Downey Jr., expecially, was good as the rat, the skiddish, fast-talking James Barris). It includes a twist that wouldn't have worked if not for rotoscope, a sense of surrealism, you never know what's real and what's a dream.
What might your favorite Robert Downey Jr. movie be?
