243. The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys (2002)
Risk leads to greatness.
You probably haven't seen this movie. I credit that to its unfortunate title. It conjures up images of molestation instead of coming of age adventure and comraderie. The movie follows a group of young boys as they rebel against their strict nun principal (played by Jodie Foster). One of the most original elements that is introduced is intercutting the boys plans of revenge and mischief with animated comic-book style visualizations of their fantasies. Bottom line: More people should see this movie!
