White Nights

2nd. In a year of great cinematography, this only ranks behind The Cranes Are Flying.

2/5 once more, but this was a tight category and the other nominees are good.  Kind of surprised not to see Paths of Glory here.

Really tough category. Hoped for White Nights. Surprised to not see Nights of Cabiria or Funny Face here.

3 of 5 for me.  The Funny Face snub is mildly shocking, the Jet Pilot one not at all.

These are all fine picks but am sad White Nights didn't make it. It's gorgeous.

How does Sweet Smell of Success compare to the other four? I haven't revisited it yet, but based on memory (and seemingly confirmed by the screenshots I've been looking at) it seems out of its league here.
