I like polls, and this child board doesn't see enough action.

I've only seen McCabe, so I voted need to see more.

400 Blows, Woman in the Dunes, Paths of Glory, Sunrise, and Joan of Arc are all very high on my to-see list.

I voted Best Years of Our Lives but I also wish I could have voted for 400 Blows and The Collector

9. The Collector[/b] (assuming this is Rohmer's La Collectionneuse... otherwise, haven't seen it)

Going by his Peeping Tom write-up, I think 1SO is talking about Wyler's The Collector.

I'll be referring back to this poll for MDC selections.

9. The Collector[/b] (assuming this is Rohmer's La Collectionneuse... otherwise, haven't seen it)
It's this (http://www.filmspotting.net/forum/index.php?topic=8652.msg533266#msg533266).

Pixote - Haven't seen it... yet.  It's on the TSPDT 1000 list, so I'll get to it eventually.
This is one I'll really push for more people to watch, and if it ever gets a proper DVD release you'll get sick of hearing me recommend it.

A mighty fine list.
Thanks.  Can't wait to louse it up with more personal, nostalgia picks.

I just reviewed the next two Doinel films, please tell me what you think.
Just read those today.  Very excited.  I've only seen 3 Truffaut, and I love them all.  My Top 100 may contain 2 of them.  I should watch the Doinel series.  One thing that struck me by the end of 400 Blows was how much I want to spend more time with Antonie.  I want to know what happens to him in life.

Antoine et Collette, Stolen Kisses and Bed & Board are all fantastic.  Love on the Run is (rightfully) maligned for its frequent flashbacks to previous films, but it brings enough new stuff to the table to be pretty enjoyable.  I think it makes for a nice end to the series.

I've only seen McCabe And Mrs. Miller, Paths Of Glory, and The 400 Blows. McCabe And Mrs. Miller is the best of those three.

4. Woman of the Dunes

Love both McCabe & Mrs. Miller and Paths of Glory, but as they are the only 2 I have seen, it is need to see more before I vote.

Dang, I have only seen The 400 Blows and Paths of Glory. Of those two I pick Paths of Glory, but I would have to see many more of these before I vote.
