Please complete this joke about psychiatrists

Please complete this joke: A guy goes a psychiatrist. He doesn't say anything during the entire hour. He comes back a week later. Neither one of them says anything. He comes back a third time. Silence right up to the end. Finally, he says . . . something. The psychiatrist responds. And that brings us to the punchline. Which is hilarious. . . I'm sure. [more inside]

What movies would I like?

MovieFilter: I recently watched and enjoyed the film All the Real Girls. Specifically, I seem to enjoy movies that are: slow, subtle, somewhat funny, southern, romantic and a bit long. Any suggestions for more things to fit this bill, or does this one movie meet all of my needs in a way that no other can? Hopefully helpful side note: I saw Up In The Air tonight, and also enjoyed it, mainly for the same sense of calm and subtlety I liked in ATRG.
