'High Fidelity' (2000)
Nick Hornby's original novel and the film adaptation felt, sounded and seared with the truth: you don't need to play an instrument to be rock 'n' roll. John Cusack's portrayal of Rob -- sad-sack savant and enthusiast -- benefited from a rich and historically definitive soundtrack, even as the film's characters pick apart the art of the soundtrack itself. Manhood and romance drove the plot, but it was a crop of top 5 of all times (and Sonic Death Monkey) that keep this motion picture on repeat.
