This is an interesting thread, ummm...

Ridley Scott's Alien is perfect.

The direction itself is flawless, but it's everything: the naturalistic acting and line delivery, pacing, set design, Goldsmith's music, just everything is firing on all cylinders... 34 years later it still looks shockingly contemporary too.
That's indicative of how influential it is, I think.

Terminator 2, Alien, Aliens, and The Lord of the Rings are pretty damn nearly perfect.

Jaws, Schindler's List, and The Silence of the Lambs are very well-constructed as well.

Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark and the original Die Hard are almost perfect for their genres.

Raiders of the Lost Ark is not a perfect film in the technical sense but it it perfect entertainment.

The Green Mile and The Shawshank Redemption are pretty damn solid films. I can't really come up with any flaw about them.

I also don't consider any movie "perfect", because that's very subjective. But these movies I can't imagine being better than they already are:

A Clockwork Orange
Shawshank Redemption
Fargo
No Country for Old Men
Dr Strangelove
Pulp Fiction
LA Confidential
Oldboy (Korean version)
There will be Blood
Godfather Part I and II
Good Fellas
Lost in Translation
Rashomon (Japanese)
Seven Samurai (Japanese)
Psycho (original of course)
Casablanca
Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid
The Deer Hunter
Apocalypse Now



There's other films I really love. But I can still see flaws in them. Not in these.

Well yes, technically no film on an objective level is perfect, I think people that deny themselves a film/films that they personally consider perfect need to lighten up and let themselves have the satisfaction. Give a damn 10/10 once in a while. Nobody will scoff at you!

Some of these aren't technically my all time favorites, but many are. Others are just damn well made.
Jaws
Gremlins
Pulp Fiction
Alien
Aliens
Apocalypse Now (theatrical)
Goodfellas
Psycho
The Godfather 1 & 2
American Psycho
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Schindler's List
Jurassic Park
ET
The Thing (Carpenter)
Terminator 2
Die Hard
Bride of Frankenstein
The Exorcist
A Clockwork Orange
The Good, The Bad and the Ugly
Once Upon A Time In the West
Blade Runner Directors Cut
Se7en
Fight Club
Zodiac
The Lion King
Spirited Away
Toy Story
The Incredibles
Ratatouille
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
Rear Window
Requiem For A Dream
Oldboy
Stalker
Raging Bull
Night of the Living Dead
Titanic (yes. I said it)
Lawrence of Arabia
Seven Samurai
Ghostbusters
Star Wars trilogy (yes even Jedi)
The Big Lebowski
Fargo
Shaun of the Dead
Back to the Future



There are more, but those are the ones that popped into my head right away.

Agreed. A hilarious, well constructed satire that says more today than it did when it was made. For what it is-perfect.

There is no perfect film. You have you Django Unchaineds & your Dark Knights, and then you have your Plan 9 from Outer Spaces, and your Adam Sandler's Jack & Jills, and then everything else inbetween.

There is no perfect film in the technical and objective sense, that is true. But there is perfect entertainment which steeps more in subjectivity.
