Are television movies included? For instance: Temple Grandin, which was on HBO. If so, should a long story like Lonesome Dove also be included?
As much as I love Dekalog and I'd love to see it included, the fact that it is a series of shorts and not one story disqualifies it for me.
Carlos, Fanny and Alexander and Scenes from a Marriage all have a theatrical release version. If we are including television movies, I don't see why we shouldn't include their miniseries versions. But would the votes be split between the two versions?
I'd love for the opportunity to vote for Kill Bill and The Godfather I and II as one film each. (I saw The Godfather Saga first before watching the two films separately). I think that each film is better as one narrative, rather than split up in their respective parts. But it doesn't make sense to vote that way since no one else does.
