details for most of these are in the Internet Movie Database.  each of these films has been suggested by at least one metasofa artist who considers it to be exemplary and transcendent.  otherwise, we are not presuming to rate relative transcendence, or anything else, in this list.  suggestions may submitted by e-mail to <metasofa at mac dot com> with 'transcendent' in the subject, or come to a transcendent movie night!
