One of the great comedic performances in movie history!

I'm pretty sad that even with Still Walking being out on Criterion that there hasn't been much/any? reviews of it on the boards since the DVD was released.  I should've nominated that for the first Movie of the Week Club poll.

Did you submit a list?

I'd love to re-watch Still Walking - I've seen it only once.

And, sadly, no, I didn't submit a list.  It just felt completely overwhelming for me to try to do even a short list since I'd really be starting from scratch.  I'm going to make an effort to keep an ongoing list this year so that I have something to work with and then submit next year.

Awesome list Ver, would love to see the rest.

Forgot to submit my list, but it would've just been the same as last year. Probably would've moved Warren Oates in Two-Lane up a few spots.

I'm really mad at the both of you for not participating.


Awesome list Ver, would love to see the rest.

I'm trying to condense all 100 performances (those that I have clip access to) to a 5-minute vid, but it looks like I can only do a 5-minute vid if I only focus on my top 10 and present the other 90 with a screenshot each.  Regrettably, no Oates performances on mine.  Looks like I'll be posting it up in two thousand late.

Okay, I'm no longer mad at you two; can't stay mad at you nice folks.  :) I appreciate the positive vibes.

My list.

I didn't feel compelled to edit it since pretty much the best performance Ive seen since then was by Skeletor in 50/50.

edit: Oops, I was supposed to add Lebowski and Gump this year. And maybe McDonnell in Passion Fish, Stevenson in Truly Madly Deeply, and Hamilton in The Wizard of Oz. Oh well.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.
